Rapper Pharrell Williams revealed that he always wanted to collaborate with King of Pop Michael Jackson.

The `Happy` hitmaker feels that the eight songs he wrote were always meant for Jackson but they were rejected by his team and were later given to Justin Timberlake, reportedly.

"I did eight songs for him that never made it to him, that ended up on Justin`s record. Later he sang me all those songs and told me they should have been his and I told him they were for him," Williams said.

Jackson died of acute Propofol intoxication in 2009.
He laughed off comparisons between himself and Michael Jackson.
"Well, there`s no comparison between me and Michael Jackson. He is the King of Pop, an incredible dancer, an incredible writer, incredible visionary, he changed the world in so many ways. I am just a fan who has been given the opportunity to make music."
