The soundtrack to the highly anticipated Despicable Me is available today on Star Track/Interscope Records. The CD features new music by Pharrell, Robin Thicke, Destinee & Paris, and others, plus a pair of classics from The Bee Gees (“You Should Be Dancing”) and The Sylvers (“Boogie Fever”).
In addition to composing the film’s orchestral score for the DESPICABLE ME: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK, Pharrell also takes the lead on four tracks he wrote and produced, beginning with the title tune, “Despicable Me,” and including “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “Prettiest Girls,” and “Rocket’s Theme” – all of which are currently streaming on Myspace. With superstar Robin Thicke, Pharrell co-wrote and produced “My Life.” In addition to “I’m on a Roll,” by sisters Destinee & Paris (formerly of Interscope’s Clique Girlz), Pharrell also wrote and produced tracks for the film’s mischievous minions (“Minions Mambo”, co-written with Lupe Fiasco), and littlest orphan, Agnes (“The Unicorn Song”). The album is rounded out by two vintage No. 1 disco hits from 1976, by The Bee Gees (“You Should Be Dancing”) and The Sylvers (“Boogie Fever”).
