Pharrell

While Pharrell enjoys success with his latest album G I R L, Disclosure dips into the “Happy” hitmaker’s catalog and remixes his Jay Z-assisted hit “Frontin’.”

The electro duo, who tapped Mary J. Blige for a remix to their hit “F for You,” breathes new life into the The Neptunes Presents… Clones single, which sounds just as current today as it did in 2003.

“Little re-work we did of one of our favourite songs ever,” wrote the band. “Might give this one away for free when we reach 1m likes on facebook… We shall see ;) ENJOY!”

Listen to their dance floor-ready remix below.

Pharrell Williams Sings in the Rain on ‘Today’ Concert Series

Pharrell Williams

Two days after rocking the Apollo Theater for American Express UNSTAGED, Pharrell Williams brought some sunshine to Rockefeller Plaza for the Toyota Summer Concert Series. Despite the stormy weather, the seven-time Grammy winner performed his upbeat hits including “Come Get It Bae” and “Happy” with some help from his female dancers, the Baes.

“It’s an amazing feeling,” Pharrell said of his success. “I never expected any of this. I’m surrounded by amazing talent.”

He will join “The Voice” as a coach next season. “My wife has always been obsessed with [the show], so we always watch it,” he said. “I never imagined being up there, either. All of this is a great surprise. It’s just awesome.”

He also shared his obsession with late scientist Carl Sagan, whose photo he requested in his dressing room.

“I watched ‘Cosmos’ as a child and I was always blown away by [Sagan's] mind and the way he thought,” said Pharrell. “When I look at that picture I realize how lucky we all are … to be on this planet and be able to do what we love to do every day. Seeing Carl’s face reminds me of it.”

Ed Sheeran and Pharrell

Puppets go wild in the video for Ed Sheeran’s single “Sing.” The red-haired Brit transforms into a muppet version of himself as he takes on the town.

He sings karaoke at a bar in Chinatown and parties with a limo full of ladies before hitting the strip club. The puppet later meets up with his likeness and they get drunk together before crashing at a motel.

Pharrell, who produced the song, also makes a cameo in the imaginative clip.

Due June 23, Ed’s sophomore album x also features production from Rick Rubin, Jeff Bhasker, Benny Blanco, Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid, and Jake Gosling.

“So don’t catch feelings / It ain’t love / We’re just the kings of givin’ out hugs,” sings the self-described “hug gigolo.”

The song can be found on The Lonely Island’s 2013 album The Wack Album.
