Pharrell Says CeeLo Green’s Team Turned Down ‘Happy’

“Happy” was turned down by Cee Lo Green’s team, says Pharrell. The Grammy-winning singer/producer revealed the news in a recent interview on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show.

“He wanted to do it, but I think some folks on his team just felt that the priority should have been on his album at the time.”

“When it came out he congratulated me. When we got nominated he congratulated me. He’s a super standup guy…He sounded amazing on it. I mean, he burns my version.”

While there’s no denying that Pharrell did a fantastic job with the track, we think Cee Lo’s version must be amazing too.
