Pharrell Williams – Happy (Official Music Video) (2013)
Thanks to K-Otik.
Pharrell spoke out on Ferguson with CNN’s Don Lemon Monday night, and said he was “disappointed in the way it was handled from the government side.” But Pharrell said this felt like another instance of black people being targeted. He said that while Officer Darren Wilson should be punished for use of excessive force, “at the same time, we’ve gotta start looking at ourselves too, because we are feeling hunted.”
Pharrell also took a shot at the media, because while there were peaceful protests, “what the media chose to cover most of all and highlight was the random few people that threw Molotov cocktails.” Lemon also spoke with Pharrell about his views on the “new black,” a philosophy Pharrell described as one that “doesn’t blame other races for our issues.”
Gwen Stefani is in the studio with Pharrell Williams and she claims to be working on both a solo album, and the next No Doubt full-length. As Stereogum points out, MTV News spoke with the ska-pop icon at a New York Fashion Week event. Seen below, the Voice coach reveals, “Right now, I’m all about doing music.”
‘Brown Sugar‘ Director Teams Up With Forest Whitaker And Pharrell For Dramedy ‘Dope‘. The man who brought us the romantic comedy favorites The Wood and Brown Sugar has partnered with Forest Whitaker and Pharrell for a drama called Dope. Writer and director Rick Famuyiwa’s Dope is centered around Malcolm, a geek living in the crime-ridden, drug-infested neighborhood of Inglewood.
Malcolm becomes a victim of his circumstances when he’s caught in the crossfires of a drug deal gone bad. Using his street smarts and wit, he figures out a way to use the ordeal in his favor. Both Whitaker and Pharrell are among the producers for the film, which set to start production this summer in Los Angeles.
Whitaker will produce for his company Whitaker Significant Productions with his partner Nina Bongiovi, alongside Pharrell and Juntobox Films. Famuyiwa will serve as writer and director of the project. The Academy Award-winning actor recently produced Fruitvale Station and Repentance. No casting announcements have been made. Thanks to HISE.
The ubiquitous feelgood hit from the hat-fixated R&B star overtakes Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines – which he also produced. After taking over pop radio, wedding dancefloors, school discos and everywhere in between, Pharrell Williams’ mega-hit Happy has become the Most Downloaded Track Ever in the UK. He overtakes Robin Thicke and his equally ubiquitous Blurred Lines, which Williams also produced.
While his collaboration with Daft Punk, Get Lucky, moves down to sixth-most downloaded. All Three Tracks sold over a million copies within a year, a feat only The Beatles have matched. “I would just like to say thank you, first and foremost, to the people, because the charts are determined by them,” Williams said. “The people of the UK have been so supportive of me over the years… That’s the lifeline, without them you’re just a musician with a couple of ideas but with them, that is the thing that changes everything when they get involved, your little idea can become something.”
Places three, four and five are now occupied by Adele, Maroon 5 and Gotye respectively, with Black Eyed Peas, Avicii, Rihanna and Kings Of Leon also in the top ten. It comes in the week that another chart milestone was breached: Calvin Harris, recently named the highest-earning DJ in the world with $66m last year, has become the first British solo artist to earn a billion streams on Spotify. With big stars like Adele opting out of the service, the way was clear for Harris, whose solo tracks and collaborations with the likes of Rihanna (the ninth most downloaded track ever) have generated £4m paid out in royalties from Spotify. His most popular track is EDM smash Summer, with 160m streams.
By Rhian Jones. Pharrell Williams will part ways with his performing rights organisation ASCAP to join the new boutique company formed by Irving Azoff and Randy Grimmett Global Music Rights from October 1, according to reports. Operating under the name of Azoff MSG Entertainment, the venture also has Ryan Tedder on board – who is managed, along with Williams, by Ron Laffitte of Front Line/Artist Nation.
Williams‘ single Happy hit No.1 worldwide last year and has since been certified 3x Platinum. He also had big success with co-writes on Daft Punk’s No.1 track Get Lucky and the No.1 single Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke in 2013. Global Music Rights will reportedly represent 30 to 60 writers, most of which will be managed by Azoff.
Pharrell gave a Swedish feminist party a shout-out during a performance in Stockholm a day before Sweden’s general election. At the end of his show Saturday, Pharrrell invited on stage Gudrun Schyman, the leader of a small party that’s campaigning on women’s rights. An online video clip showed Pharrell and the 66-year-old Schyman dancing hand in hand as he performed “Happy.”
Schyman left the ex-communist Left Party in 2003 to found Feminist Initiative. The party won a seat in the European Parliament earlier this year and polls suggest it could get the 4 percent support that’s needed in Sunday’s election to enter parliament. Feminists have criticized Pharrell for producing the song Blurred Lines, which they say promotes rape culture, but he has recently spoken out in favor of women’s rights.
