Sesame Street: Pharrell Williams sings B Is for Book

Posted on

Pharrell Williams took a recent stroll down to Sesame Street for an important lesson.

In a video shared by the series Wednesday, the Grammy-winning multi-hyphenate sets the magic of reading to song. “You can go anywhere, without leaving your chair,” he sings to an awestruck Elmo and Cookie Monster. “You can be anything: a pirate, a king — just grab a book!”

The brass-accented track goes on to reference a number of childhood favorites, from Alice in Wonderland to Little Miss Muffet. “Have tea with the hatter / If he’s mad it don’t matter / ‘Cause he’s inside a book,” Williams croons.

The hitmaker joins a score of celebrities who have made cameos on the children’s show this year, including Nick Jonas, John Oliver, and Jack White.
