Hello, and welcome to another edition of Music Monday. Today we are jamming with Pharrell’s new music from the Despicable Me 3 soundtrack. It’s no secret I am a huge Pharrell fan or that I love the Despicable Me series. So having the two together makes me super excited.
Did you know Pharrell has written and produced songs and themes for the entire Despicable Me series? Despicable Me 2 featured the Academy Award®-nominated and Grammy Award-winning global smash hit “Happy.” The song inspired a worldwide movement of happiness, with its original music video spawning thousands of self-made videos from fans in dozens of countries. “Happy” has topped countless charts around the globe, with 14 million units sold. It has achieved seven-time-platinum certification in the U.S., making the song the best-selling and most successful single of 2014.
The Despicable Me 3 soundtrack has five brand new original tracks written and produced by Pharrell for the film. Watch him and the Minions journey through the streets of Hollywood in a virtual video game in the new music video. Another original Pharrell song made for Despicable Me 3, “There’s Something Special,” perfectly captures the tone of the series. Additionally, Pharrell’s anthemic “Freedom” serves as the backdrop as the Minions plot their escape from prison in the film.
The soundtrack will be available on June 23, pre-order today.
