Pharrell Williams Sees First #1 Hit With “Happy”


It’s been a great start to 2014 for Pharrell Williams. The famous singer/producer was recently in the headlines for his infamous Grammy’s hat, which he’s now auctioning off for charity. His song “Happy,” which he recorded for the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack, just hit No. 1 on the Billboard chart and this Sunday he’ll perform the nominated “Best Song” at the Oscars.

Currently Pharrell is busy at rehearsals for the big night, alongside nominees Idina Menzel (for Frozen’s “Let It Go”), Karen O, (for Her‘s “The Moon Song”), and U2 (for Mandela‘s “Ordinary Love”). When asked what it’s like to perform at the Oscars, Pharrell responded, “all I care about is the fun.”
