QOTD: What Do You Think About Pharrell’s Single Cover?




Earlier this year, Pharrell  received much  backlash after he released his G I R L album cover art. He was called out for not featuring a black girl on his cover, and then accused of colorism when it was revealed that there was a black girl featured, but she was of a light complexion.

On Tuesday night he released the official cover art  to his newest single “Marilyn Monroe,” featuring a stunning, dark complexioned woman. The cover seems to suggest that Pharrell took the criticism seriously, but there are many who question whether or not the decision was made from a serious change of heart.

What do you think about the single cover? Do you think it represents Pharrell’s change in attitude or does it seem too disingenuous for you to appreciate?
