Pharrell put together the soundtrack for Hidden Figures — a movie about Katherine Johnson and her story of working for NASA — and it’ll drop December 9, two weeks before the movie.
While there’s songs from Mary J. Blige, Janelle Monáe and Alicia Keys on the soundtrack, we’ve only heard songs with Pharrell involved (which is okay). They’ve trended toward upbeat, soulful and driven, which is what the newest song, “Able,” revolves around.
“Don’t you know we are able? And that alone makes us major,” Pharrell sings as he shines light on the importance of black minds like Katherine Johnson’s.
