Pharell Williams Album “GIRL”

Pharell Williams Album “GIRL”

Fiance Yates, Staff Writer

GIRL is a great comeback album to follow Pharell’s 8 year hiatus. Every song has the joyful feel of “Happy” without getting old as you get further into the listen. “GIRL”, like Williams’ most recent hits, is a relentlessly positive and unself consciously joyful tour de force. Williams himself describes “GIRL” as “festive and urgent”, which is actually a perfect succinct way to summarize the album’s overall tone. “Happy” originally released last summer on the “Despicable Me 2” soundtrack, “Happy” got a post- “Blurred Lines” and “Get Lucky” boost late last year thanks to a viral music video and Academy Award nomination.
