Pharrell Williams says the world takes its musical cues from the British, while praising the UK for championing new music.

The 'Happy' singer spoke to Capital on the red carpet at the BRIT Awards 2014 tonight (19th February), where he is set to perform.

I'm just working on a song and then, before you know it, the English have just turned it into a phenomenon worldwide!" Pharrell told Max on the BRITs red carpet. "Because you know the rest of the world takes cues from you guys?

The US star also opened up about duetting with Chic guitarist Nile Rodgers at the event tonight.
