In this sit-down, Pharrell also speaks on who “Happy” was originally for… goes into his love for A Tribe Called Quest, Public Enemy, living in Virginia, and much more!

This beat’s build-up kinda makes you wait for it… Then Disclosure lets enough of the original drip into the drop for the beginning to set it off right. No “Frontin'” this is a nice dance remix to the Pharrell and Jigga classic collab.

R&B: Jennifer Hudson – “I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel)” feat. T.I. [Prod. By Pharrell Williams]

1371579162000-XXX-Jennifer-Hudson-1307021502_3_4

‘Feels so good it hurts’
is officially what every heterosexual male wants to hear Jennifer Hudson sing into his ear. Cot dam! Well, shout to SoulBounce for bringing her “I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel)” joint to our attention with her doing just that… with an assist from super-producer Pharrell Williams and consummate southern rhyme-sayer T.I.

“Channeling a bit of the late ’70s/early ’80s R&B sound (think Cheryl Lynn or Evelyn “Champagne” King), the producing dynamo delivers the perfect dance floor groove for Hudson’s larger-than-life vocals. The groove walks the fine line between retro and modern, finally giving us an uptempo track that works with Jen rather than forcing the diva to conform to the song. And the addition of T.I., who could teach a class on how to guest rap on an R&B track, keeps the groove going without distracting from the star of the show.”
