In the clip, the producer’s disembodied head floats near a crew of the animated film’s Minion characters, who play along with the breezy waltz by noodling on double-bass, keyboards and snare.
Pharrell explores a soulful, vibrato-heavy falsetto throughout “There’s Something Special,” which takes on a spiritual bent. “I’m a sinner – sometimes I sat down when I got tired,” he sings. “Should’ve stayed standing up to the job for which I was required/ But the good Lord, thank you relighting my fire.”
The track follows Pharrell’s previously issued Despicable Me 3 single, “Yellow Light.” The soundtrack arrives June 23rd, and the film opens June 30th.
