Pharrell Williams Cries 'Happy' Tears Over His Song's Success

Pharrell Williams was brought to tears during an interview with Oprah Winfrey while talking about the success of his hit song “Happy,” which has spent the last seven weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

“Zero airplay. Nothing. And the next thing you know, we put out the video November 21, all of a sudden – boom. I mean, when I say boom… booooooom,” the 41-year-old singer said.

After Oprah played a montage of fan-made videos featuring “Happy,” he was left in tears.

“It’s overwhelming, because it’s like I love what I do, and I just appreciate the fact that people have believed in me for so long that I could make it to this point to feel that,” Pharrell added.
