Pharrell teases 'Freedom' as the first Apple Music exclusive

Freedom. June 30th Apple Music

Posted by Pharrell Williams on Tuesday, June 23, 2015

Remember when Drake and Pharrell were caught in the act wearing Apple Watch on their hands two weeks before the gizmo was actually released for the general public? This should have been a hint about the special relationship they are forging with Apple, confirmed by the presence of the two artists during the Apple Music service unveiling, too.

Drake and Pharrell are also lined up to be guest DJs for Apple's Beats 1 radio station, but that's not all that will be required of them, it seems. Pharrell just outed a teaser for an Apple Music exclusive track that is called Freedom, and will be available June 30th, or the date when iOS 8.4 hits the airwaves, bringing with it the much anticipated Apple Music streamer. Here's the bit performed live by Pharrell for the first time.

Exclusive freedom, sounds legit. F0ck this exclusivity, it only shows which artists care only about cash and which want to share their message with world, Pharell is surely the first type and his music sucks enormously

The same guy that made song called Happy, which happend to be a blatant copy of sb else's song? That about sums it up. Another mr goody two shoes who got paid millions to promot apple. It's not freedom, it's greed.

This thing should be banned. I mean where are all these equality activists now? Am I worse than others because I don't want to own Apple products? I am not a big fan of Pharrel, but I really hate this kind of influence he may give to other artists. Everyone should be able to listen to any song regardless which service they use.
