Pharrell Net Worth $78 Million


Pharrell’s father Pharaoh was a handyman, and mother Carolyn a school teacher. It was his parents who persuaded Pharrell to start playing some instruments, beginning with keyboard and drums while he was still a very young kid. Music became Pharrell’s hobby, but when he was a teenager, he decided to participate in a music camp, at which he made friends with his future colleague Chad Hugo who was a saxophonist. Interestingly Chad is a record producer as well as a multi-instrumentalist, whose net worth is now as high as $55 million. Along with Chad, Pharrell has been increasing his net worth while working in The Neptunes.

Chad and Pharrell decided to start working together in the 90s. Together with Shay Haley and Mike Etheridge, they formed The Neptunes, initially concentrating on R&B music, however, they also performed both pop and hip hop. The band started by performing at school concerts and other local events,  and also participating in school talent contests, where The Neptunes was noticed by Teddy Riley, a famous instrumentalist, songwriter and record producer. He offered the boys a contract to sign with him after their graduation. This deal helped Pharrell to receive the first significant income to his net worth.

In the middle of the 90s, Pharrell and Chad decided to launch a production duo with the same name as their band. The duo was received well in the music industry. Their first internationally known single is considered to be I`m a slave 4 U, actually performed by Britney Spears, and then released their first album entitled In Search of… in 2001. They also worked on the production of Nelly`s Hot in Here, which entered the top positions in the charts. For this and other contributions to the music industry, The Neptunes were nominated as best producers in the Billboard Music and The Source Awards.

Along with Chad Hugo, Pharrell owns The Neptunes, dealing with record production. It is known that The Neptunes has been working alongside many famous hip hop, R&B and pop performers. There are no doubts The Neptunes added great sums to the total size of Pharrell’s net worth. For the record, N.E.R.D. was a project operated by The Neptunes, and for this project Pharrell worked along with Shay Haley.

Pharrell’s net worth really started growing especially in 2003, when his popular single named Frontin was released. Three years later Pharrell increased his net worth with income from his debut album In My Mind, which was nominated for 10 Grammies and won two of them.

In his personal life, Pharrell married model/designer Helen Lasichanh in 2013. They have a son, Rocket Williams, born in 2008.
