  • Here, Pharrell Williams asks what might happen if everyone came together in one moment to see what death felt like.

    "It's this daring notion that maybe we could achieve peace and a couple of other really amazing things if all at once every human being on the planet put their hands up in the air, you know, like just for a minute to just see what death felt like," he explained to Zane Lowe during a Beats 1 interview.
