The Best of Freegal Music

'G I R L' by Pharell Williams

It's Baaaack...Pharell GIRL album coverThe Best of Freegal Music!

... and so is Pharell with his new album, G I R L! The ten-track studio album was released March 3 and Freegal has all the tracks available for you to stream and download. Here's the skinny on the album and some tracks you might love.

If you don't know Pharell, he's a multiple Grammy award-winning Hip-Hop, R&B and Pop singer, songwriter, rapper and producer. Wow, that's a lot of credentials! So you could only expect that his new album would be as phenomenal as his musical resume. There's something on the album for every kind of music lover, and the theme is enjoying life.

Here are three of the songs from the album that I enjoyed most:
  • "Marilyn Monroe" is the very first track on the album, and the instrumental is so rich and laid back it's definitely a song you'll want to keep on repeat. The chorus is super catchy and Pharell sounds awesome, as always.
  • "Happy (from Despicable Me 2)" You can figure by the name of this track exactly what it's all about. It's super uplifting and the words and the beats will stick right to your heart and in your ears.
  • "Lost Queen" is the last of my favorites, and it's an ode to a beautiful girl with a magical instrumental. You don't want to miss it!
Even though those three tracks are my favorites, there are still plenty more amazing tracks to listen to, including collaborations with Justin Timberlake and Alicia Keys. So, whether you decide to stream or download, make sure you have your DC Public Library card handy so you can Check It Out!
