Pharrell Dons Glittery Suit in ‘Lose Yourself to Dance’ Video
Pharrell Williams has basically ruled this summer by being part of two of the season’s — maybe even the decade’s — biggest hits: Robin Thicke‘s ‘Blurred Lines’ and Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky.’ It makes sense he’d take the spotlight once again (not that he’s ever really left) as the summer closes.
Last night, in a commercial break during the MTV Video Music Awards, electronic music pioneers Daft Punk gave a peek of the music video to ‘Lose Yourself to Dance,’ a song off the duo’s comeback album, ‘Random Access Memories.’
The video features a circular setup that’s vaguely similar to the duo’s classic video for ‘Around the World.’ Pharrell, Daft Punk and legendary guitarist Nile Rodgers are seen wearing glittery outfits, which is the same kind they wore as they promoted the album’s lead single, ‘Get Lucky.’
The four perform on top of a circular pyramid as a crowded audience dances around them for the duration of the clip.
The clip is only one minute, but Daft Punk’s Vevo page promotes this as the official video. The visual ends as the duo’s album title flashes on the screen.
Pharrell’s other assisted hit — Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ featuring T.I. — spent 11 weeks atop the Billboard charts and has sold over 1 million copies.
