Pharrell's 'Crave' For 'Hidden Figures' Soundtrack Is a Catchy Soul Party

Pharrell has lent eight songs to the Hidden Figures soundtrack, and today, we hear the third one. On Wednesday, the producer revealed "Crave," a soulful song full of lead guitar and hand claps.

In fact, the hand claps barely stop. It's become Pharrell's signature (just listen to "Freedom" or "Come Get It Bae," and you'll be clapping for. ever.). His voice gifts the song some tongue twisters (My love is pourin', yeah from ya / Machine gun, brrrrmp-a-ding-ding), while a crew of backup singers give the funky ditty an extra oomph.

"Crave" tells the story of an uncontrollable crush, which has P swaying all over the sidewalk. It follows "Runnin'" and "Surrender" from the Hidden Figures soundtrack.

The movie, starring Octavia Spencer, Taraji P. Henson and Janelle Monáe, is about three black women overcoming barriers by working as the secret brains at NASA during John Glenn's space launch in 1962. Watch the new trailer below:
