pharrellIt’s no secret that Pharrell Williams had a spectacular 2014, thanks in large part to his hit single “Happy” and “G I R L,” his first solo album in eight years. He’s looking to start 2015 off strong with an upcoming album with Snoop Dogg and a guest spot on animated powerhouse The Simpsons. 

The Emmy Award-winning game-changing animated sitcom has welcomed many other black entertainers of all stripes over the course of its 25 year lifespan.
