After dominating 2014 worldwide with his Academy Award-nominated smash “Happy,” Pharrell Williams is ready to get back at it again with the exclusive Apple Music premiere of his new single “Freedom!” The track — which Zane Lowe debuted and called “one record that means more to us than any other” — plays out musically like a meatier sequel to “Happy,” but with a much more intense tone. He’s making a statement y’all!
“Hold on to me, don’t let me go / Who cares what they see / Who cares what they know / Your first name is Free, last name is Dom,” Pharrell declares alongside a heavy ominous piano line and a chanty chorus of singers. Given last week’s headlines, the timing for a song like this could not be more perfect. Do your thang Pharrell – PREACH! PREACH! PREACH!
