The flair of Pharrel turns on the ‘Happy’ switch

Though, true happiness is felt without a reason, but the song ‘Happy’ sung, written and produced by the happy young man, Pharrel Williams, does have many reasons behind its instant and contagious feel of elevation and ecstasy, which is nothing less than the truth.
The song is an original soundtrack from the animated film, Despicable Me 2 that aptly resonates with spirit of the minions. Its neo-soul yet funk appeal is what transcends in to a groove that one helplessly taps to. The lyrics are honestly happy. “Because I’m happy clap along if you feel like a room without a roof” is what Williams raises his pitch to — a falsetto that sounds just right.
The video successfully replicates the mood of the brilliant composition. The tempo of the song is expressed with ease by different people through their own form of happy dance. From children to the elderly everyone is perfectly in sync with the absoluteness of the soundtrack. The flair of Pharrel cannot go unnoticeable in the way he communicates his happy. The energy can easily turn condescending, if not shared.
The soundtrack was nominated in the Oscars in the ‘original soundtrack for a film’ category.
‘Happy’ is in no taste despicable.

Did we forget Shakira, at all?

This Shakira-Rihanna duo comes as a surprise treat with their song, ‘Can’t remember to forget you’. The song has a fun element to it, groovy and fools around a bit in the head for some time. The video is a total engage with the charm of a mature Shakira, but not losing out on that innocent mischievousness that never fails to grace that body language of hers.
Rihanna, as poised as ever, maintains her dark side even in this girlie, boy-problem track– if only she smiled a little.

Although, it is hard to say what the both of them intend to do with each other, especially keeping the track lyrics in mind, the attempt is entertaining — even if, for a brief span.

This track is a recommendation, a  must watch, especially for the fans.
