The Despicable Me movie series has always been shockingly memorable. Pharrell Williams handled the first two movies masterfully, producing massive hits like the viral “Happy” and this month’s TikTok sensation “Just A Cloud Away”. Fast forward to last week when obnoxiously bright posters began to spring up around London. The 70’s inspired poster showcased a lineup of artists that span generations and genres, the two with the largest font were Motown superstar Diana Ross and Australian powerhouse Tame Impala.
Speculation began about a collaborative album between the two-generational artists, but the rumors were soon put to rest when it was announced that the posters were meant to promote the Jack Antonoff produced the soundtrack for the upcoming movie Minions 2: The Rise Of Gru.
Today, we got the first taste of what Bleacher’s frontman cultivated for the animated film. Co-produced by Kevin Parker, “Turn Up The Sunshine” is the first collaboration between Ross and Parker.
Coming off a remix album of Impala’s 2020 The Slow Rush, it seems like Parker is taking a liking to sharing the studio. “Turn Up The Sunshine” was originally slated for Ross’s 2021 project Thank You.
