By Mark Savage. Pharrell Williams has walked away the big winner from the first ever BBC Music Awards. The US producer-songwriter was named best international artist and won Song Of The Year for his exuberant, gospel-inspired single Happy. Ed Sheeran was named British act of the year, and played a rousing version of his Pharrell-produced single, Sing, using just a guitar and loop pedal.
Pharrell was unable to attend, as he was filming the US version of talent show The Voice. Joining the awards ceremony via satellite, he described Happy’s global success as “weird” and “not something I can determine“. Paying tribute to the people who watched, streamed or downloaded the song, he said: “Songwriters are beholden to what the audience thinks.

“When you say ‘song of the year’ it’s not really my award, it’s your award.” Accepting his prize from singer Sir Tom Jones, Sheeran said: “A massive thank you to everyone who’s bought a record, bought a ticket, streamed on YouTube or listened to my music.” “I always thought my career would stop at one album,” he added, “[but] even if people stop listening to the music I’m still going to make it.”
The awards were hosted by BBC DJ’s Fearne Cotton and Chris Evans. The Welsh rock band have been championed by BBC’s Introducing strand, which champions emerging talent. The song of the year award was the only category decided by public vote, with the others decided by a panel of industry experts. Hosted by Chris Evans and Fearne Cotton, the show was broadcast live on BBC One, Radio 1 and Radio 2. It was also screened in Denmark, Japan, Ireland and North America.
By Jenny. In new reports from both Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter, Gwen and Pharrell Williams’ new collaborative track “Shine”, included in the upcoming family comedy Paddington, based on the popular children’s stories, is one of the 79 contenders for an Oscar for Best Original Song at the 87th Academy Awards.
“Shine” is said to be premiering soon and only appears in the US domestic release of the film, excluding the British version. Paddington hits theaters next month in the US on January 16. The track is said to be included on the soundtrack and will be featured in the film’s closing credits.
When the song was first revealed, Gwen mentioned that “Shine” was a new track that No Doubt were recording with Pharrell Williams. Now, several sources are reporting that the song is a collaborative song with Gwen only and there has been no mention of the band. Both Gwen and Pharrell were in attendance at the recent Paddington press confernce held in Beverly Hills earlier this month.
We hope more clarification is on the way for us and we would think soundtrack details should be released soon, as well as the track itself. Great news on the song being a contender for an Oscar and we hope it advances with a nomination!

Pusha T. is the lyrical rap fan’s favorite lyrical rapper. From his work with his brother as the duo Clipse to his Kanye West-produced debut solo album, My Name Is My Name, he’s received rave reviews from critics and fans alike, who have for years enjoyed the unapologetic snarl with which he delivers verses.
When it comes to his fashion sense, Pusha’s often been on the cutting edge, whether it was being one of the first people on the planet to rock Pharrell’s Icecream sneakers, or helping to bring back the militant all-black-everything look of the ‘90s alongside Mr. West. Like the two of them, Pusha’s now got his own collaboration with Adidas in the form of a cream-colored EQT Running Guidance 93.
At first glance the sneaker looks just like a monochromatic version of the retro style, but upon further inspection, fans of the rapper’s music will easily recognize the inspiration. Fish scale accents, cracked leather, and a gum sole are all subtle nods to Pusha T’s street hustling past. We sat down with him to talk about the EQT, his feelings on Adidas‘s year, Lil Wayne, and his famed Gucci Chuck Taylors.

Yes, you are reading right, The Neptunes are working on the new Spongebob Squarepants Movie which will be out next year on February 6th. Check out this article where they confirmed working on the project. “With “The Voice” still in production, Williams is poised to resume doing what he always does: helming a dizzying array of sessions.He’s committed to producing Snoop’s next album from top to bottom, and he and Hugo are making music for the upcoming “SpongeBob SquarePants” feature.
“We’re trying not to think too much in a cartoon sense,” Hugo says, “but more just like a psychedelic, otherworldy type of thing. If you want to draw a parallel, maybe think of what the Beatles did with ‘Yellow Submarine.’” His partnership with composer Hans Zimmer has already begun to yield impressive fruit and he still has a fashion line, a record label and a charity, From One Hand To Another, to keep him occupied.”
“There’s always a flow to human activity,” Williams says. “If you stare out at it long enough you can see where it’s going, but you don’t have to go where it goes, that’s the beauty of life. You can go wherever you want to go. As long as you’re armed with that information and remain curious, you can do some really interesting things.” Can’t wait to hear this!
