A consistent thing has been going on when a Despicable Me movie comes out; it means a new Pharrell song is also coming out. Pharrell has contributed songs to all three of the Despicable Me movies soundtracks. This includes his classic feel good song “Happy” which is on the second movie soundtrack. The Despicable Me 3 movie soundrack features five new songs from Pharrell. The soundtrack comes out June 23rd and Pharrell has offered us a chance to listen to one of the songs called “Something Special.” It sounds like an old blues song and features a low dark groove and Pharrell singing in his signature high pitched voice. Although it has a feel good vibe to it, Pharrell voice seems a little bit nauseating over the beat. Maybe it’s because when you hear old Blues songs, you used to deep powerful voices. Or maybe because it just something different that you have to get used to. Either way, when you listen, it has weird effect of sounding good and annoying. Maybe after a few more listens, the song wins you over completely. Listen to the song below.
A lot of controversy has been surrounding Lavar Ball, the father of NBA prospect Lonzo Ball. His outlandish comments, interviews and his own shoe company have all made negative and positive headlines. Instead of ducking the obvious, Lonzo Ball spoke about his dad honestly and sarcastically in a new Footlocker commercial. While other NBA prospects talked about normal father-son activity in the commercial; Lonzo talked about his dad “went on First Take and shouted back and forth with Stephen A. Smith about how you’re already better than the reigning league MVP.” The commercial is one of many from Footlocker in which take a athletes uncomfortable moments and make it funny. Watch the commercial below.
