He may not have released an album in 2013, but Pharrell Williams had one of his biggest years when he was featured on Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” (also featuring Nile Rodgers). He also released a brand new track titled “Happy” for the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack and also hit no. 1 on the US Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Don’t forget, he was also featured on Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.” And since then he’s been making appearances here and there that would hint that the man was getting busy.
After the confirmation that he’ll finally be releasing his first solo album in eight years, the track listing was revealed. And from the looks of it, it’s got some major hitters. Daft Punk will be returning the favor in his song “Gust of Wind.” The man of 2013, Justin Timberlake will be on his track “Brand New.” You’ll hear twerking sensation Miley Cyrus on “Come Get It” and veteran Alicia Keys will featured on “I Know Who You Are.” In addition to the hot guests, Hans Zimmer scored the strings on the album.
