Pharrell Previews New Song ‘Freedom’ in Apple Music Ad

Pharrell Williams celebrates “Freedom” on his new song, which he debuted in an ad for Apple’s new streaming service, Apple Music. The minute-long clip kicks off with an introduction from Zane Lowe, host of Beats 1, Apple’s 24/7 radio station.

“Hold on, don’t let me go / Who cares what they see, who cares what they know / First name is free, last name is dom / Choose to believe in where we’re from,” sings The Neptunes hitmaker over the jazzy beat.

The uplifting song eventually builds to a rousing chorus and chants of “Freedom!”

Pharrell, along with Drake and The Weeknd, has partnered with Apple on their new music service, which launches June 30.

Additionally, Skateboard P has contributed four original songs to the soundtrack for DOPE, the film he co-executive produced with Sean “Diddy” Combs.
