XXL: You've got the number one record in the country, you're performing at the Oscars, you just won Record Of The Year at the Grammys, and you got your first album in eight years coming out on Monday. How do you feel right now?
Pharrell: Unbelievable. It's an unbelievable feeling. Especially when you consider the fact that it's the fans that have taken it to this place.

But it's the fans, man, they jumped behind the songs and it's been pretty amazing.
