Pharrell Williams’ Happy is most downloaded song in UK ever!

We’d be pretty ‘Happy’ too if we’d sold that many records!


Pharrell’s ‘Happy’ has been named the UK’s most downloaded song of all time!

According to the Official Chart Company, the smash hit single has shifted a whopping 1.62 million copies since it came out in June last year!

Downloads have been around for over ten years now but Pharrell has managed to claim the top spot just twelve months on from the track’s release!


“I would just like to say thank you, first and foremost, to the people, because the charts are determined by them,” said Pharrell.

“The people of the UK have been so supportive of me over the years, allowing me to be an artist and allowing me to work with other people and supporting what it is that I do.”

‘Happy’ also featured on the soundtrack of movie Despicable Me 2 which further boosted its popularity.

If you want our advice Pharrell, we’d use all the ‘Happy’ monies to hire our own team of minions – just like Gru!
