The Daily Grind Video

Hello, pretty lady.

If this beautiful young woman looks familiar, it’s because she’s the black beauty featured on Pharrell‘s “Marilyn Monroe” single artwork.

Amid the controversy surrounding Pharrell’s G I R L cover and the “lack of black women” it featured, Pharrell (who probably had this planned already) released the single artwork for his new single “Marilyn Monroe” starring model/dancer Khadija Nicholas.

“She’s everything I want, and it’s crystal clear/ Not even Marilyn Monroe/ Queen Cleopatra please/ Not even Joan of Arc/ That don’t mean nothin’ to me/ I just want a different girl.” 

And boy, oh boy, Khadija is different (at least by mainstream America’s standards).

This West Indian beauty is a Brooklyn native who has traveled around the world as a dancer on Rihanna’s “Diamonds World Tour” and been a professional model for some time now.

In honor of all the “different” girls around the world, we decided to round up 32 pictures of this brown-skinned beauty in all of her glory below.

Trust us. She’ll be your #WCW next week.
