Still flying high from last summer’s R.O.S.E., Phil Adé took the beat to Pharrell’s “Happy” for a spin recently. The Oscar-nominated tune is so infectious that it’s almost impossible not to smile when you hear it, something the Maryland rapper alludes to: “Funny how a song about a mood could move ’em amazes me.” Everyone wants to be happy, even Phil.
Around the one-minute mark, Adé flexes a double-time flow for a good 15 seconds until the song’s signature hand-claps arrive, serving as a round of applause for his lyrical performance. He also touches on the Washington Wizards’ potential playoff berth and welcomes fellow Dallas Cowboy haters to greet him at any time. Who says mood music has to be sad?
