Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2015 kicked off with a bang on Friday. Although she missed the presentation, Rihanna still made a grand entrance at Adam Selman’s runway show.

Like a gust of wind, Pharrell Williams stormed the stage on Day 2 of the Budweiser Made in America Festival in Philadelphia on Sunday. Despite the wet weather, which delayed his set about an hour, The Neptunes hitmaker spread some sunshine with his feel-good hits. Wearing a red bandana and red Bee Line x Timberland boots, he opened with “Lose Yourself to Dance.”

He and his all-female dancers, the Baes, grooved to his G I R L singles “Come Get It Bae” and “Marilyn Monroe,” and took it back with some classics including “Frontin’” and “Rock Star.”

“I’m really disappointed that they did not let the press back out here to see what it looks like in Philadelphia for 100,000 people to be happy at one time,” he said before closing with “Happy.”
