Thanks to Universal Music Group’s Urban Legends — a multi-platform website that honors the past 30 years of UMG’s urban catalog — Pharrell Williams’ 2006 debut album, In My Mind, is now available on black vinyl and limited-edition blue vinyl.
Though Williams already had garnered an impressive reputation for himself through N.E.R.D — Fly or Die peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 in 2004 — his 2006 solo release put him in a new category. In My Mind hit No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and notched features from the likes of Kanye West, JAY-Z, Pusha T, Nelly, Snoop Dogg, Gwen Stefani and more.
In addition to the vinyl release of his debut album, Williams recently hosted the Yellow Ball at the Brooklyn Museum, an event that came together to support and foster the work and ideas of artists. The night featured appearances from David Blaine, Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz and A$AP Ferg.
