On top of announcing his new album G I R L (March 3) earlier today, Pharrell has yet another accomplishment to celebrate. “Happy,” the single off the Despicable Me OST that has had everyone dancing for months now, has finally surpassed the million sold mark (thanks in part to this week’s 330k), and is now certified platinum.
Hot Digital Songs: #1 Happy, @Pharrell Williams 329,000 (1,318,000 total).

Honestly, I’m surprised it took this long. The song is everywhere and I’ve yet to meet a single person that doesn’t enjoy it.
