Hip-hop heads have long known of Pharrell Williams‘ work in the music world, but his inclusion in a several mega-hits this year (Daft Punk‘s ‘Get Lucky’ and Robin Thicke‘s ‘Blurred Lines,’ for example) has helped even more folks learn of his importance. Case in point: He was recently profiled on NBC’s ‘Today.’

The musical everything-man sat down with the show’s co-host Savannah Guthrie for an interview about his career, childhood, and his creative process. He reveals that his love for music started on the drums and that he met future Neptunes partner Chad Hugo at band camp. Williams also recalled the time he went to Virginia amusement park King’s Dominion, wandered off, and was found dancing where Kenny Rogers was performing.

Perhaps the most intriguing portion came when Williams was asked where he does his best writing. Apparently it’s in the shower, where he said that he’s written about a third of his catalogue. Seriously? That’s awesome.

You can watch the interview below.
