In A Genre Where “Nobody’s Smilin’,” Pharrell Has Another Happy-Go-Lucky Record (Audio)

Have you found yourself in the car, seeking through stations, getting Pharrell’s “Happy” on every spin of the roulette wheel? It feels like for more than two months, this Head has. Well, it wasn’t a one-off. At a time when there are certainly sad albums, break-up albums, and mourning albums, Mr. Williams is in a “happy” period. This bonus cut from G I R L, from the Japanese version.

“Smile” feels like it’s titled, as Pharrell offers up some warm vibes to remind Heads that things aren’t so bad after all.


Do you think Hip-Hop needs more upbeat, elated albums?
