Fresh off the song’s official debut, Pharrell performed “Get Lucky,” his collaboration with Daft Punk, for the first time during the HTC One launch at Brooklyn’s House of Vans on Friday night. He did it not once, but three times as the crowd sang along.
“Man these guys that made this record, they’re like so far beyond their time. I’m honored to know those guys, those robots,” said Pharrell of the French electro duo. “We just have a lot of incredible history together. So when they called me over the summer, I just remembered thinking one thing…Try to get lucky, right?”
The disco-funk track has already rocketed to No. 1 on iTunes in over 40 countries. It marks the first single off Daft Punk’s upcoming album Random Access Memories, due May 21.
