His record Chairman/CEO Rob Stringer said “When we excitedly partnered with Pharrell in January of this year, we felt it was his time again,” says Columbia Records. “Since then, ‘Blurred Lines’ and ‘Get Lucky’ have defined pop music in 2013, and now we are preparing to launch Pharrell as a global solo superstar in 2014. ‘Happy’ is just the beginning.”
Just last month, Williams released the world’s first 24 hour music video for Happy which is presented as an interactive clock, featuring a diverse cast of characters dancing along to the song. The one-of-a-kind clip can be seen at http://24hoursofhappy.com,
