You can always tell a Pharrell Williams song before the vocalist, songwriter and producer even sings a note. There’s a certain buoyancy to Mr. Williams’ music that often feels good and lifts your spirit. Well, the Academy-Award winner offers up his same ol’ feel-good routine on his latest single “Crave.”
Incorporating everything from an intricate horn section, a steady guitar riff to a simple hand clap, “Crave” is a funky new addition to the Hidden Figures soundtrack (out Dec. 9) that Pharrell has contributed eight songs to.
Hidden Figures stars everyone’s favorite ’round the way girl Taraji P. Henson who plays Katherine Johnson, Janelle Monae who brings Mary Jackson to life and Octavia Spencer takes on the role of Dorothy Vaughn. All three women helped to restore faith in the American people by launching astronaut John Glenn into orbit. Before “Crave” Williams released “Runnin” and “Surrender” featuring Lalah Hathaway.
