    Pharrell Williams’ “i am OTHER” YouTube Original Partner Channel Now Available
    Grammy Award winning music icon Pharrell Williams has officially announced the launch of his creative venture, the i am OTHER YouTube channel. Williams describes the new endeavor as “a cultural movement dedicated to Thinkers, Innovators and Outcasts.” The newest addition to Pharrell’s i am OTHER brand, the YouTube channel, is part of Google’s initiative to create channels with original programming. Its line-up includes the critically acclaimed web series Awkward Black Girl, exclusive interviews from eccentric music journalist Nardwuar, new fan favorite Stereotypes and exclusive videos from Williams about everything from music to food. The channel will also feature significant viewer participation. Creative minds will have the opportunity to interact with Williams within a community of self-defined OTHERS.

    “The idea for i am OTHER really came from the fans. They often say I inspired them to think outside the box and I wanted to establish a creative collective which represents that same philosophy,” says Williams. “I believe individuality is the new wealth and I am dedicated to creating and supporting projects that encourage originality.” His manifesto about the OTHERS, people who defy expectations and stereotypes, can be found at

    Programs on i am OTHER’s YouTube channel explore the pursuit of individuality, the defiance of expectations, and the arrival of a new class of visionaries. By celebrating creative pursuits of all kinds, the channel will showcase the architects of global culture, music, fashion, and the arts. Shows now airing on the channel include the cult sensation Awkward Black Girl from filmmaker Issa Rae. The Stanford graduate created the scripted comedy to test her theory that “we’re all awkward.”

    "We are so thrilled and excited to be a part of the i am OTHER family! I initially created this series because I didn't feel represented on "mainstream" TV. We decided it was best to keep Awkward Black Girl on the web for a second season because we wanted executives and fans to understand that you can be "Awkward" and "OTHER" without having to compromise,” says Issa Rae, creator and star of Awkward Black Girl. “Joining the i am OTHER family is truly a perfect match because from day one they GOT IT.”

As half of the beat-making duo The Neptunes with Chad Hugo and the alternative rock trio N.E.R.D. with Chad and childhood friend Shae Haley, Pharrell has helped A-List pop stars sell millions of albums and even earned Grammy Awards for the likes of Justin Timberlake, Nelly, and Usher.

    William’s unique style and creative aesthetic has been a force in several successful businesses outside the world of music. These include founding the popular clothing brands, Billionaire Boys Club and ICE CREAM, as well as designing limited edition jewelry and accessories for Louis Vuitton. In collaboration with French furniture makers Domeau & Peres, Pharrell designed a collection of chairs called “Perspective” which debuted at the prestigious Emmanuel Perrotin Galerie in Paris.
