Pharrell Williams Is Cheerful on ‘Despicable Me 2′ Track, ‘Happy’
Pharrell Williams is on a roll right now. The producer has three songs getting heavy traction on the Internet: Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky,’ Robin Thicke‘s ‘Blurred Lines’ and now ‘Happy’ from the ‘Despicable Me 2′ soundtrack.
The feel-good track has a throwback feel to it with its soulful organ groove, on-time drumming, soul claps and vocal harmonies.
The sing-along chorus goes: “(Because I’m happy) Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof / (Because I’m happy) Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth / (Because I’m happy) Clap along if you know what happiness is to you / (Because I’m happy) Clap along if you feel like that’s what you want to do.”
This exuberant tune is the perfect pick-me-up to get you out of those doldrums.
The rapper-singer-producer contributed three original songs to the ‘Despicable Me 2′ soundtrack — one of which is ‘Scream’ featuring Cee Lo Green. The collection will arrive in stores June 18. The animated movie itself hits theaters July 3.
C’mon and get happy with Pharrell!
