Pharrell’s New Year’s resolution must have been to be everywhere in 2014.
If so, he’s already four months in and going strong, and this week the omnipresent singer released the video for his new single, “Marilyn Monroe.”
Pharrell dances around with dozens of women, including Kelly Osbourne, who surprisingly sings a bit on the song.
In the video for the single, which is the leadoff song on his “G I R L” album, he also wears several variations on his now-legendary hat in black, green and red.
Appearing on “Good Morning America” earlier this month, he reflected on his new record, which he said was inspired by women.
“Women just deserve so much better and so much more. I mean, you guys don’t get paid as much as men do – that needs to change,” he said (via Zap2it). “We’re a species that has a Martian rover on the surface of Mars! Yet we’re the same species that tries to tell women what they can and can’t do with their bodies. That needs to change.”
“Marilyn Monroe” comes just days after his “Amazing Spider-Man 2” track, “Here,” took the Internet by storm.
Pharrell also produced Alicia Keys and Kendrick Lamar’s “It’s On Again” for the same soundtrack and performed “Happy” at the Oscars.
