Pharrell - Happy (Kaytranada Edition)

Am I the only person who feels like Happy is a bit too gimmicky? Given the fact that it was originally used in a cartoon, I completely understand the sunshine feel. However within the full album, G I R L, it's g-rated vibe has me pushing fast forward and leaving the smash single to the kids.

Enter the latest remix from Montreal's Kaytranada that flips the track with more soul and scuzzy synths. A quick glance at his Soundcloud account will tell you he's got an ear for taking R&B songs (Janet Jackson, Common, Jill Scott) one level deeper, slowing things down and zoning out like those late, hazy nights in dim lit clubs.

So far no info on a free download, or official release. But with 140,000 plays in one day, I think it's safe to say it's coming...
