Listen to a Pharrell Williams Playlist Featuring 15 Top Hits
Pharrell Williams is in a league all his own when it comes to his music and his style. Songwriters wish they had his knack for penning irresistible hooks in a variety of genres and his peers watch in amazement as he shows up to red carpets donning everything from streetwear to polished black suits. He's a man with many accomplishments under his belt and he has hip-hop to thank for his start. After all, his roots are with the Neptunes producing tracks for the likes of the Clipse, N.O.R.E., Snoop Dogg and Jay-Z, among many others.
With a single solo album, 'In My Mind,' to his name, it's hard to believe he lays claim to just one considering he's showed up on so many fellow rappers' songs singing hooks -- a listener can tend to forget whose track it originally was because Skateboard P shines often. Then there's his work as part of N.E.R.D., which birthed four LPs -- 'In Search of...,' 'Fly or Die,' 'Seeing Sounds' and 'Nothing' -- and had the skateboard set embracing the hip-hop and rock hybrid.
And let's not forget his soulful stylings in the electronic world, where he showcases his effort on Daft Punk's current smash 'Get Lucky.' If there's one thing to learn about Pharrell, it's that he's the poster boy for versatility. To celebrate his contributions to hip-hop and beyond, TheDrop.fm and McDonald's Urban Bytes series take a look back at some of his top hits as a solo star and a collaborator.
