Pharrell Williams believes God sent him to Earth to make music.

"I just did the math the other day, I thought it was only 20-something years, but 'Rump Shaker' came out on, like, August 25th, 1992. I have to figure that out," he told Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1:

“But it's been 30 years since I first released something commercially... And it's been 30 years. 30 years, I really write. I actually produce. I compose music. I really do this, bro. I really do, and I really love it. I really love this," he emphasized.

"That's what I do. This is what I like to do. This is what God gave me. Do you understand what I'm saying? And I'm not going to leave anyone… Listen. My gift will never diminish. I'll do my best to highlight it, because that's my job. It's not my fault if you don't know you're fire. But I know what I am. I know what God has put in me,” he continued.

“I know I'm fire. I know. Not just because they burn when they get too close, but because I'm here to shine a light. That's my job, bro. And it's not my problem if you don't understand. It's your job too. I am here to light a light,” he claimed.

Pharrell Williams released new single 'Down In Atlanta' featuring Travis Scott on Friday, November 18, and said he's determined to keep making music.

“That's really what I'm interested in these days. There are just certain times in your life, times when you feel the rush, and you feel the tension, and you feel the magnetism of something that makes you want to listen to it over and over and over again,” he said.

"And that doesn't always happen. Even if you make collaborations that you just want to put on repeat, the desire and thirst for it is not always flat. It has its ups and downs, and right now I'm just thirsty,” commented Pharrell.
