XXL: How have you stayed current, musically, throughout the last 15-20 years? Music is constantly changing, and you've been consistently at the top of the charts.
Pharrell: I think my love for music is just the same. I love the way it feels, so any time I get a chance to do it, I do. I think that's really all it is—you gotta love what you're doing.
