Pharrell Williams is one of the coolest dudes around. His new album, G I R L has been playing not stop on my iPad and in the car since its release and I absolutely love it. Some of my favourite tracks include Marilyn Monroe, “Brand New”, a song that features Justin Timberlake. Hunter is another one of those typical tracks you’d expect from Pharrell and it works and then you have the song, “Know Who You Are” with Alicia Keys that I absolutely adore. Apparently the two are in studio make more magic in studio for Alicia’s next record. Cannot wait! So it’s definitely an album you should own if you like some funky, fun and of course Happy music 😉

Speaking of Happy, Pharrell is making people Happy with that track. It’s an Oscar-nominated song that has clocked up over 180 million views on YouTube alone. The City of Cape Town is one of the world’s best tourist destinations and their efforts to make the city one of the most loved in the world continues with their version of Pharrell’s hit song. Check it out below. You will love it!!!
