From “Rump Shaker” to “Blurred Lines”: Pharrell Williams’ Biggest Summer Jams

pharrellmain

If there is one hit maker who knows how to churn out a Summer Jam, it’s Pharrell Williams. For over 20 years — yes 20! — the singer, songwriter, producer has been cranking out hits for both himself and popular rappers, singers and Daft Punk. Since he has had some many summer hits, we wanted to round up his most successful (as well as our favorites) into one fantastic playlist. All the hits are here, from his first for Wreckx-n-Effect (“Rump Shaker”) to his most recent, “Happy.” But what song was the biggest of his career? We bet you can guess.

Aww! Watch Gwen Stefani And Gavin Rossdale Perform “Glycerine” Together

Gwen Stefani and her husband Gavin Rossdale found themselves sharing a stage last night at the KROQ radio’s Almost Acoustic Christmas show in Los Angeles — an event made all the more special by the fact that Almost Acoustic Christmas show is the very show where the rock-star power couple met 17 years ago. Together they performed Bush‘s “Glycerine,” a song that Rossdale correctly figured “would be so powerful, the two of us on stage like that.” The the No Doubt frontwoman — who showed up looking like she probably did that night in 1995 in red-plaid pants and a sheer black top — joined her Bush frontman after the first verse, and the crowd went wild. And we would have done the same, because Aww! There aren’t many songs so good nor rock couples so cute.

No Doubt “Push And Shove” Their Way Through The Streets

It’s an ongoing party in the big city streets. Gwen Stefani and her boys–Tony Kanal, Tom Dumont and Adrian Young–roam the neighborhoods lined with graffiti cement walls in the video to their title track “Push And Shove.” This is the crew you hear coming four blocks before they’re within eyesight. The black and white visual was released today to coincide with release of the album of the same name. It’s been 11 years since No Doubt’s last album, so why not have fun? The quartet have a crazy good time in the video with cameos from Major Lazer and Busy Signal. Gwen Stefani even takes a dip underwater. What more could you ask for? No Doubt is back! Hardcore.

It’s Hugs All Around For No Doubt In Their New “Settle Down” Video

At last, No Doubt are steady on their return! Yesterday they dropped “Settle Down,” their first new track in over decade, and today we get the accompanying video. Directed by “Don’t Speak”, “Simple Kind Of Life” and “Underneath It All” director Sophie Muller, the clip casts the band’s four members as truck drivers looking to reconnect at some sort of LED-lit, carnival-esque parking lot party. It’s hugs all around when they get there, and then onto some skanking and an impromptu performance in a truck-bed.

Two kids later and bra-straps forever sliding out from her tank, Gwen Stefani looks and sounds almost exactly as she did when we last left her. And to be sure, that verve of hers is only in part thanks to the shiny red L’Oreal Paris Infallible lip gloss she flashes around. Time truly has not touched these guys, and they are still repping a similar sound and the same dance moves. And most of all, they still look cooler than we could ever hope to be. We are so glad to have the good influence of Gwen and her boys back in rotation!
