Pharrell Williams

Pharrell Williams has pretty much been around for decades, even if you didn't really know it. He actually started his music career back in 1994 with The Neptunes, who went on to produce hits for Britney Spears and later on for the band NERD. In these years he produced for some of the best artists around, including the whole first album for Justin Timberlake - "Justified".

In 2013, his solo career really took off after collaborating with 'Daft Punk' and 'Robin Thicke', with huge hits 'Get Lucky' and 'Blurred Lines' respectively. Since then, he has gone on to become one of the biggest pop stars in the world, dominating charts all over the world. What's more, he also become famous for wearing one of the most ridiculous types of hat known to man at the Grammy's in 2014, but at least he showed his charitable side by selling it to restaurant chain Arby's for a whopping $44,100, which he promptly donated to his own charity, "From One Hand to Another".

Williams signed to huge record label Columbia in 2014, so expect plenty more pop hits from him for years to come.
