One of the defining artists of the 21st century, Pharrell Williams was born on April 5, 1973 and made his debut as a rapper in 1992. Williams has cranked out numerous hits as a solo act, as part of the band N.E.R.D and, in collaboration with other artists, he has helped redefine modern pop along with the production team The Neptunes.
The term ‘renaissance man’ exists to this day because of people like Pharrell. He seems to be a true creative master, able to produce massive hits with ease – for himself as well as others. The list of artists he has conjured up hits for is as comprehensive as it is diverse.
Fall Out Boy, Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar and Jay Z have all benefitted from his magic touch, and there’s also the scintillating work he composed with his childhood friend (and N.E.R.D bandmate) Chad Hugo in The Neptunes.
Prince, Rage Against The Machine, Britney Spears and The Rolling Stones are just a fraction of the legends that called upon the two to remix or produce their records. Their work as a duo may have taken a backseat to Williams’ solo career, but the influence they’ve had on pop is undeniable.
From ‘Frontin’ in 2003 to the Oscar-nominated uber-smash hit ‘Happy’ in 2013, Williams continues to shape modern pop music into his own image. He was also one of the writers and performers in the two other monster hits of 2013, Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ and Daft Punk’s masterful ‘Get Lucky’.
Williams’ stellar career whiffs of divine intervention, but in truth he is simply one very talented man. So come join him for the ride, because it’s only going to get bigger from here on out!
