In My Mind is the solo debut album by American rapper, singer and producer Pharrell. It was released on July 25, 2006.
The album debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200, but received mixed reviews. It was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 2007 Grammys, but lost to Ludacris' Release Therapy.
In a 2014 interview with GQ, Pharrell admitted he “wrote those songs out of ego… talking about the money I was making and the by-products of living that lifestyle. What was good about that?” He blamed the record’s low sales on its braggadocios tone, “The money was too loud. The success was too much.”
Still, the album included hits like the already-released “Can I Have It Like That” with Gwen Stefani, and the buoyant “Number One” featuring Kanye West.
