Pharrell Grammys hat

How tall is Pharrell Williams? Pharrell Williams is 5 feet, 9 inches tall, according to CelebHeights.com, and most websites seem to back that up. Of course, the singer, songwriter, rapper, producer, and multi-instrumentalist is a bit taller when he’s rocking his famous hat, but that’s besides the point. Pharrell Williams was born April 5, 1973, in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and as a child, he played the keyboard and drums. In the seventh grade, he met Chad Hugo, who would go on to be his partner in the Neptunes, the production team behind hits for numerous hip-hop and pop artists. In the ’90s, the Neptunes worked with the likes of Mase and N.O.R.E., and in 2001, they had their breakthrough with “I’m a Slave For You,” the No. 1 smash they crafted for Britney Spears. If Pharrell Williams wasn’t yet a giant on the pop-culture landscape, he was well on his way, and he’s since released two solo albums — 2006’s “In My Mind” and 2014’s “Girl” — and forever put his stamp on pop history with songs like Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” and Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” both of which featured his distinctive vocals.

Pharrell Williams’ 5-foot, 9-inch frame might not make him a literal giant, of course — he’s more or less average — but in terms of popularity and mass appeal, there are few artists able to walk taller. Over the years, Pharrell has worked with such artists as Jay Z, Adam Levine, Madonna, Solange, Twista, Common, Kendrick Lamar, and Frank Ocean. The list goes on and on, though he’s perhaps best known for his 2013 team-ups with Daft Punk and Robin Thicke. Pharrell is that rare artists that can drop ubiquitous pop hits like “Blurred Lines” and “Get Lucky” and push the artistic envelope with side projets like N.E.R.D., the genre-blurring group he formed in the early ’00s.

How tall is Pharrell Williams compared to other musical superstars? He’s taller than Kanye West (5 feet, 8 inches) and Bruno Mars (5 feet, 5 inches), and while he’s shorter than Robin Thicke and Jay Z, both of whom stand 6 feet, 2 inches, dude’s got the tallest hat in the biz, so he’s all set.
