Gwen Stefani, Pharrell Debut Video For Collaboration "Shine" Ahead of 'Paddington' U.S. Release [WATCH]
The video for the Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams' collaboration "Shine" debuted today. The track is featured in the movie Paddington, which hits theaters Friday (Jan. 16). The clip shows scenes from the family-friendly film and serves as a trailer of sorts as well as a lyric video.
"Everybody is the same inside / But you don't wanna go home / Just like a little bear was alone / Hey if he were right it ain't known / You just wanna shine," Pharrell sings on the track.
"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 with Stefani adding, "I am honored to join forces with Pharrell and be part of bringing this beloved classic to life for Paddington's next big adventure."
Based on Michael Bond's A Bear Called Paddington book series, Paddington follows the adventure of a Peruvian bear who travels to London and is picked up at Paddington Station by the Brown family. Mr. Brown reluctantly houses the bear, who is being tracked down by an evil taxidermist. The film stars Ben Whishaw, Hugh Bonneville, Nicole Kidman, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, and Julie Walter and has already premiered in the U.K.
Williams and Stefani have previously worked together as judges on NBC's The Voice as well as on hits like "Hollaback Girl," "Can I Have It Like That" and their recent single "Spark The Fire." The duo also collaborated on Stefani's upcoming third LP, which is due out sometime this year.
