Pharrell Williams, "Frontin'"

There's not much that can hide the obvious Prince influence in Pharrell Williams' music, like on 2003's "Frontin.'" Skateboard P's performance is a clear nod to Prince. In 2006, Williams noted the superstar as one of his inspirations and hoped to work with him one day. We're still waiting on that to happen.
