“This song just came out last night, and Brooklyn knows all the words,” Pharrell sang Friday, at his first-ever performance of Daft Punk‘s “Get Lucky.” He was right. At Brooklyn’s HTC One launch, Pharrell sang the hook to the Random Access Memories single not once, not twice, but three times. Each time, the crowd sang along.
Pharrell’s performance was tame, and he should have done what Jay-Z did at Jermaine Dupri‘s So So Def anniversary party in February — that is, perform to a track without vocals. However, his idea to keep starting over was a good one. It’s as if he knew that after hearing only snippets of Daft Punk’s fourth album, the crowd would be at a fever pitch.
