Here Are The 2015 Grammy Nominees

Can you smell it in the air? Awards season is right around the corner…

The last several years The Academy Of Recording Arts And Sciences has held one annual event to reveal the latest round of GRAMMY nominees. This year, the reveal has been turned into a day-long event, with categories and nominees being revealed throughout the day. Several categories were unveiled this morning on CBS This Morning, but many of the major categories will not be discussed until The Academy announces them as part of tonight’s A Very Grammy Christmas special, which features performances from Pharrell and Ariana …

Pharrell Teams With Edgar Wright For “Gust Of Wind” Video

This isn’t the Edgar Wright movie you were looking for, but it’s all you’re apt to get for a while.

Pharrell enlisted the renowned Shaun of the DeadScott Pilgrim, and NOT Ant-Man director for his latest music video. It won’t blow you away with clever quick cutting or mind-blowing imagination, but it’s certainly a gorgeous video with some neat ideas.

Pharrell is outfitted in a big hat, naturally, and he’s surrounded by beautiful dancers throughout. Wright’s representation of Daft Punk takes a page from Easter Island, and the framing of Pharrell with hand claps is a most …

Watch Pharrell’s “Come Get It Bae” Video Starring Miley Cyrus

America is still undergoing the heavy airplay of Pharrell‘s “Happy” (and the video of it bringing him to tears), but in the meantime, the music icon is pushing his new G I R L cut “Come Get It Bae.” In his music video for the single, Pharrell Williams brings a slew of models on camera to show off the female figure in a positive way — well, until Miley Cyrus shows up.

The straightforward video is a compilation of studio shoots featuring numerous women dancing and enjoying themselves while Pharrell shoots them on a Super 8 camera. Halfway …

Weird Al Parodies “Happy” With “Tacky”

Whoever said parodies are dead has not spoken with Weird Al recently because the king of turning top 40 hits into side-splitting originals has once again outdone himself with his latest single.

For the better part of the last year radio stations worldwide have been obsessed with a little song by Pharrell called “Happy.” You may know it as the song your little sister won’t stop singing, or that track from Despicable Me 2 that no one cared about until it was nominated for a Grammy. Either way, we have a parody for you. Emerging from the studio just in …

Usher Teams Up With Nicki Minaj On Latest Single, “She Came To Give It To You”

The first few days of work following an extended holiday weekend can be pretty rough. The coffee’s never strong enough, someone’s always asking way too many questions, and Friday seems like a distant dream. Pretty much everything is a struggle, and it’s enough to drive a guy (or girl) wild.

But fear not, fellow desk jockeys, for I have just the thing to turn your Tuesday around! Following the release of “Good Kisser” and “I Don’t Mind,” earlier in the day, Usher joined forces with Nicki Minaj to unleash the newest must-hear jam of the summer. …

Pharrell Cries “Happy” Tears With Oprah And The Internet Explodes

As if you needed another reason to love Pharrell after watching his killer performance at Coachella this past weekend, a new video making the rounds online today proves the guy is as humble as they come.

Pharrell recently sat down with Oprah to talk about life and his career in music, which has seen a significant upswing in recent months thanks to the relentless success of the single “Happy.” It’s the kind of song you know even if you swear you never listen to top 40 radio, and it has probably been stuck in your head at least …

Pharrell Brings All His Friends Onstage For An Excellent Coachella Performance

Mr. Do It All and suspected vampire Pharrell Williams took the stage in Indio, California Saturday night (donning his gone-viral hat that aids in preventing wildfires and appears to double as a bird house) for a guest-filled (and dust-filled) set that seemed to wow those in attendance. Throughout his 18-song performance Pharrell brought Nelly, Busta Rhymes, P Diddy, Snoop Dogg, Gwen Stefani, Tyler, The Creator, and Diplo onstage for various tracks as the desert dust progressively took a toll on Lil’ Skateboard P’s pipes.

Toward the end of his set, Pharrell could hardly sing at all, finally giving up during …

Woodkid Happy Pharrell

Hear Woodkid’s Sad Remix of Pharrell’s “Happy”

Leave it to the always brilliant Woodkid to turn Pharrell‘s “Happy” into a sad, sad song.

Woodkid, a Polish-born, French-raised musician known for his beautiful orchestral pop, took Grammy and Oscar nominated “Happy” and slowed it down into something similar to an Adele tear-jerker. Now filled with strings and solo piano, the song takes on new chords that work together to move your heart instead of your feet.

Considering Woodkid has also directed music videos for Katy Perry, Lana Del Rey, and Rihanna, it may be best that this remix doesn’t have accompanying footage. That could just make us …

Beck Announces North American Tour

With the release of his latest album Morning Phase, Beck is packing up and heading out on a North American tour in about a month’s time.

The self-appointed loser of the ‘90s has been pretty busy the last couple months. He had the new album, worked with Pharrell and even performed on SNL. So adding a tour to the list of things he’ll do is not a surprise, but dropping a second album this year is.

Word is that Beck will release another album later in 2014 that balances out Morning Phase. This won’t be before he …

Pharrell Announces New Solo Album ‘G I R L’

Riding the wave of an extremely successful 2013, Pharrell has announced plans to release a new solo album, his first in eight years, in 2014. Titled G I R L and due out for release on March 3, Pharrell claims that the album is “rap-free” and is more like his 2013 single “Happy” than his previous solo material.

Pharrell topped charts many times in 2013, with feature spots on Robin Thicke’s massive summer song, “Blurred Lines,” and in the epic return of Daft Punk in “Get Lucky.” “Happy” was used as a theme song in Despicable Me 2 and featured …

Kendrick Lamar, Janelle Monáe, And Pharrell Williams To Perform During NBA All-Star Game

I am both a sports fan and music enthusiast, and as such, I am always pleased when my two favorite pastimes can be brought together. If this is the case for you as well, then you’ll probably want to tune in to the upcoming NBA All-Star Game, which will feature performances by Kendrick Lamar, Janelle Monáe, Pharrell Williams, and many others.

Kendrick is first up, and will perform Saturday (February 15) during the NBA’s slam dunk competition. Pharrell will then take over on Sunday during player introductions, while Monáe will provide the halftime entertainment with the help of Dr. John, …
