Pharrell Says 'Happy' Was Cee Lo Green's Song First
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.30.2014



Pharrell Williams is developing a habit of following in Cee Lo Green's footsteps. As previously reported, Pharrell is taking over Cee Lo's spot as a mentor on The Voice and now the singer says his breakout hit "Happy" was originally recorded by the Goodie Mob member.

Pharrell told Howard Stern that the song was Cee Lo's first but that it was shut down by people on his team. He even said Cee Lo's version topped his own, saying, "He sounded amazing on it. I mean, he burns my version! But the... how do I say this diplomatically?... The powers that be, at the time, did not see it fit for him. Some folks on his team just felt that the priority should be on [Cee Lo's] album at the time ['Magic Moment' in 2012], so they elected not to do that song."

The song is of course a huge success and has catapulted Pharrell to household name status, so I'm sure he's okay with how it worked out.
