What's the story?
Rapper and producer Pharrell's single HAPPY is an upbeat addition to the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack. The track has two music videos: a traditional one, which features Pharrell and others happily dancing to the song, and one captured over a 24-hour period that shows various people dancing along to the song on repeat.
Is it any good?
It's hard not to dance and sing along with "Happy" and its music videos. The bouncy Motown beat is infectious, and the pure joy on everyone's face in the music video is undeniable. The song is a bit repetitive, especially once you've watched more than a few parts of the 24-hour music video, but it's nearly impossible to not enjoy the solid, spirited track -- and its buoyant message.
