In a recent interview with MTV News, Pharrell Williams admitted that he had “no idea” Daft Punk and his collaboration for “Get Lucky” would be such a success. When “Get Lucky” was released, it quickly became Spotify's most streamed song in a 24-hour period in both the US and the UK. The track remained #1 on the singles charts for over 4 weeks and sold over 600,000 copies.
Pharrell went on to say
“I mean, I thought it would do good, I didn't know it would be this; I didn't know it would be breaking records across the board, I had no idea. I just thought it would do well, because it felt great and it felt different, and you guys know I live for those types of things, to do things that are different. So the fact that it's been so explosive, and that the people chose to make it the phenomenon it is; the only thing we can say is thank y'all. I was with the robots yesterday, and, of course, they're super thankful too.”
