There has been a lot of press surrounding Pharrell Williams as of late. Mostly it’s been about his large oversized Sgt. Slaughter/Park Ranger hat that he wore to the Grammy’s this past Sunday. Some of the chatter has been about Pharrell’s Producer of the Year Grammy that he received which was very well deserved. He was the architect behind “Get Lucky” and “Blurred Lines,” two of the biggest songs of the year. But all the press should be centered around how awesome Pharrell’s song “Happy” (from Despicable Me 2) really is. Sometimes we just need a feel good song to brighten up our moods and get us into the groove. That’s what “Happy” does for me. I can tell that Pharrell is pretty happy about his life now a days. He remains to be one of the most sought after producers in all of music. He truly enjoys making music. “Happy” is nominated for a Best Song Academy Award. That’s pretty bad ass. He signed a new record deal with Columbia Records this past year and is currently working on his next album, which supposedly will not be featuring any rap. He is co-composing The Amazing Spider Man 2 with Hans Zimmer. And he is co-founder of the Billionaire Boys Club clothing line. He recently married his long time girlfriend, model/designer Helen Lasichanh, and they have a son, so I would guess that Pharrell is pretty happy right now. In times like these when it’s freezing cold out and dreary, everyone can use a little happiness in their life. Enjoy today’s SOTD and slap that smile on your face!
