SoundTRAX: Alicia Keys & Pharrell Williams from "Hidden Figures"
SoundTRAX is a dive into notable music from iconic films and TV shows every Monday-Thursday at 8:10.
When Hidden Figures came out in 2016 it managed the rare feat of not only being a hit commercially, but also charmed the critics as well, garnering three Oscar nominations.
Oh, and it's got a great soundtrack as well, thanks in no small part to Pharrell Williams.
Williams co-produced the entire album, wrote most of the songs, and was the primary featured artist. But he did get some impressive help.
Janelle Monáe (one of the stars of Hidden Figures, along with Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Butler) joins Williams on a track, as do Lalah Hathaway, Mary J. Blige, and gospel singer Kim Burrell.
But since today is Alicia Keys' 43rd birthday, SoundTRAX is highlighting her duet with Pharrell Williams from the Hidden Figures soundtrack, a tune they wrote together called "Apple."
