While the world was focused on Kanye West’s Glastonbury Festival performance little ol’ hit-making super producer Pharrell was also on tap to take the stage at the event. The Virginia entertainer used his set time to debut a new track he recently teased on Twitter titled “Freedom.”
Before performing the track, he addressed the crowd. “You see, I don’t care how much money you have in your bank account. I don’t care how rich your family is or where you come from. If you are a human being you need some sort of freedom,” P yelled to the massive crowd. “There always somebody in your life or something in your life trying to chain you down and tell you what you can and cannot do. But tonight, England, we are going to get freedom.”
The song is aptly about breaking free from mental and social restrictions and contains an infectious piano loop that’s difficult to get out of your head. After his first performance, the crowd was feeling the track so much they got an encore.
The song will debut on Apple Music, Apple’s new music streaming service. As recently reported, celebs like Drake and Skateboard P are involved in the endorsement of the new rebranding and integration of Beats Music which recently launched. In their attempt to rev up the streaming game, Apple will be debuting a free Internet radio station Tuesday, June 30. The electronics giant has signed Pharrell, Drake and Dr. Dre to host shows on Beats 1. Dre will reportedly have his own show called “The Pharmacy.”
