Grammy-award winning singer/songwriter/producer Pharrell Williams once again returns for Illumination and Universal Pictures' "Despicable Me 3" (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), available everywhere today via i am OTHER Entertainment/Columbia Records.
Tune in to NBC next week as Pharrell visits "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Monday and then "Today" on Tuesday.
Pharrell created an upbeat, 16-track summer dance party with "Despicable Me 3" (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), which features five original tracks he wrote and produced for the film, including "There's Something Special" and "Yellow Light," as well as his previously released anthemic "Freedom."
The soundtrack gets a healthy dose of nostalgia, thanks to the series' new villain, Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker), a former child star who's grown up to become obsessed with the character he played in the '80s. Bad never sounded so good, literally, as Michael Jackson's "Bad" makes the perfect theme song for Balthazar Bratt. The soundtrack also features classic hits from the decade, such as Madonna's "Into The Groove," Nena's "99 Luftballons" and a-ha's "Take On Me." Parker is featured on the new song from Pharrell titled "Hug Me."
Pharrell has written and produced songs and themes for the entire "Despicable Me" series. "Despicable Me 2" featured the Academy Award-nominated and Grammy Award-winning global smash hit "Happy." The song inspired a worldwide movement of happiness, with its original music video spawning thousands of self-made videos from fans in dozens of countries. "Happy" has topped countless charts around the globe, with 14 million units sold. It has achieved seven-time-platinum certification in the U.S., making the song the best-selling and most successful single of 2014.
"Despicable Me 3" opens in theaters June 30.
