Pharrell Williams Streams ‘Happy’ From ‘Despicable Me 2′

Written by Sarah Bella on May 22, 2013

Ooh, Pharrell, you’re so hot right now. Before you could even get the smooth Mr Williams’ ear-worm vocals to Daft Punk’s Get Lucky out of your head, the hip hop mega-star has given us Happy, a cut from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack.

Williams is co-producing the movie’s tunes with composer Heitor Pereira, just as the duo did for the first Despicable Me film, and if this track is anything to go by, the sequel will be one mighty upbeat slice of pop heaven. Happy is a smooth piece of ’60s soul, complete with handclaps and a refrain asking you to join in. Now, that’s something everyone can enjoy.

This is just 1 of 3 original tracks that this half of The Neptunes has written for the movie – another, Scream, will feature Cee Lo Green. The Despicable Me 2 soundtrack is out 14th June and the film, starring Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig and Steve Coogan, hits movie theatres on 20th June.
