Pharrell Williams Stays Hot With G I R L
February 19, 2014

Pharrell Williams has been on an unbelievable hot streak in the past year. He co-wrote and produced the smash hits "Blurred Lines" and "Get Lucky," won the Grammy for Producer of the Year, and is nominated for an Oscar for his song "Happy" from the movie Despicable Me 2. Now, Pharrell will ride this wave of success by dropping a new solo album, G I R L, on March 3. G I R L will be his debut release for Columbia Records, and it will be highlighted by the hit single "Happy."

"When Columbia Records presented me with the opportunity to make an album, three things came to mind," says Pharrell. "One was the sense of overwhelming honor that I felt when I realized that they were interested in partnering with me on the album that I had always dreamt of making. Two, it would have to feel festive and urgent. And three, I instantly knew it would be called G  I  R  L. I hope you like it."

Pharrell is currently in London, where he will perform "Happy" at the BRIT Awards on Wednesday night. On Sunday, March 2, he will perform the song on the 86th Annual Academy Awards. Just last month, in addition to the aforementioned Producer of the Year Grammy, Pharrell also took home three other Grammys for Album of the Year for Daft Punk's Random Access Memories; and Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Performance for "Get Lucky."
