Pharrel Williams has slammed a music record that has stood since 1978 in New Zealand. His infectious song â€˜Happyâ€™ has become the longest running number one single.
The record had been held by Boney M for the double-sided single 'Rivers Of Babylon'/'Brown Girl in the Ring' and it's taken all this time to be surpassed.
Pharrelâ€™s hit has proven that people across the world really do value happiness. YouTube has been flooded with videos of people dancing to his â€˜Happyâ€™ song. The Grammy winning singer/songwriter was brought to tears when he was shown segments of some of the videos during an interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Williams has had a huge year so far and was nominated for an Oscar at this year's Academy Awards with his hit Happy, which appeared in Despicable Me 2.
