One listen to Phil Adé’s remix of Pharrell’s “Happy” made it clear that the Maryland rapper had endless fun making it. All the accompanying video does is confirm this. In the Daniel St. Ours-directed clip, Adé is possessed by the song’s positive vibes, exuding a carefree confidence that allows him to easily deploy multiple rhyme schemes—and smile while doing it. Adé dances all over this beat like he’s Savion Glover.

The video is as simple as the song that inspired it, featuring Adé at peak satisfaction—even when he’s flipping drivers off. More offerings like this, and his fans will have plenty to be happy about.
