Happy by Pharrell

Pharrell is a widely known music producer, songwriter, singer, rapper, drummer and newly a fashion designer. He is best known for his producing skills under the name “The Neptunes” with his friend Chad Hugo. They began working together in 1990 and since then they have produced numerous soul, hip-hop and R&B songs for mainstream artist including: SWV, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Beyoncé, Britney Spears and many others. In 2003, Pharrell released his first solo single ‘Frontin;’ oddly, he didn’t release a debut album until 2006 (In My Mind) but during that 3 year gap Pharrell was busy producing and writing songs for other artist. The same can be said for his 2nd album, it’s taken Pharrell 8 years to put it out but it’s largely due to how busy he has been with other artist and getting his fashion company off the ground. In late 2013, Pharrell hit the music scene with a bang! He was featured on the track ‘Get Lucky’ by Daft Punk, ‘Blurred Lines’ by Robin Thicke and he had the lead single for the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack. The song I’m bringing you today can be heard in the Despicable Me 2 movie, all over mainstream radio, and it will be on Pharrell’s new album that will drop on in March. I like this song because the title definitely reflects the entire vibe of the song. Every time I hear this song, I can’t help but want to dance like the folks do in the video. It’s a song that just lifts my spirit and makes me instantly happy . If you were to walk by my cube this morning, you would have seen me bouncing around in my chair after I found the link to this song on YouTube. Sammi and Michele can vouch for this bounciness in my cube, lol. In the video there are various people dancing and singing lyrics to the song; Jimmy Kimmel, Magic Johnson and Steve Carrell (who voices Gru in Despicable Me 2) can be seen dancing in the video also (oh and life size versions of the minions dance too). Enjoy!
