Pharrell has been in the studio working on new music, we all know that. There is also talk about a new N.E.R.D. album being in the works but we are yet to hear anything concrete so far.
The super talented producer/rapper/singer definitely has one new song coming soon. A fan caught Skateboard P shooting a video for the track around his block recently and uploaded it to YouTube (thank you internet!). In the clip, you can see Pharrell performing to the brand new song, rumoredly titled ‘Congratulations’, as the cameras roll. Although one can hardly understand the exact words, the melody can definitely be understood well.
There is also a chance that the song might appear on the upcoming soundtrack to the film Despicable Me 3, which is set to hit theaters June 30th. We’d have to wait for more info on it. Until then, enjoy the clip below.
Yesterday, Pharrell addressed the New York University Class of 2017 on behalf of the honorary degree recipients during the school’s 185th Commencement ceremony at Yankee Stadium. You can watch his speech here.
