Pharrell Williams may not be an actor, but he’s been a pretty big part of the Despicable Me film franchise with his Grammy and Academy Award-nominated hit, “Happy,” from the 2013 animated sequel. He’s now back in the world of cartoons with, “There’s Something Special,” the second original track to be featured in the upcoming movie, Despicable Me 3.
As heard in the audio-only video above, “There’s Something Special” is the slower, more soulful answer to “Happy,” but no less enjoyable. The song makes for the perfect lullaby that, according to the announcement press release, will “soundtrack Gru and Lucy’s love for their three adorable daughters throughout the film.”
The new single follows “Yellow Light” as the second original song courtesy of Pharrell, that will be featured on the soundtrack for the film, which arrives in theaters on June 30. In total, the singer/producer will perform eights songs that will appear on the film's soundtrack.
Pharrell recently made the trip over to Manchester, U.K., where he used “Happy” to help bring some smiles to faces of Ariana Grande fans at her hugely successful One Love Manchester Benefit Concert back on June 4.
