Pharrell Williams, Gwen Stefani Lend Voices For “Shine”
It’s may have been a decade since Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams collaborated on dance-floor hit “Hollaback Girl,” but the duo are still in the business together with a new track, titled “Shine” to be featured in upcoming film Paddington.
The family-comedy film follows a young Peruvian bear as he his travels to London in search of a home, where he finds himself lost and alone at Paddington Station. There, he meets the kind Brown family, who read the label around his neck that says “Please look after this bear. Thank you,” and offer him a temporary place to stay.
“What a wonderful opportunity, as a parent, to contribute to something as classic, authentic and generational to all of our lives, as Paddington Bear,” Williams said in a statement.
As improbable as the premise sounds, parents are sure to enjoy the comedy almost as much as their kids!
Paddington hits theaters nationwide this Friday, Jan. 16. Listen to the adorable and irresistible “Shine” from the Paddington soundtrack below:
