As Summer 2013 ends and we move into autumn, it is safe to say that this summer belonged to Pharrell Williams. Mr Williams’s Midas touch graced both Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’ and Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ – both topped charts for weeks on end throughout the summer months. In honour of all this Pharrell lovin’, here are some other tracks that feature his silky smooth vocals.
Drop It like It’s Hot
Easily one of the biggest hits of the 00’s era which had everyone clicking their tongue to the beat. This was the lead single taken from Snoop Dogg’s 2004 album R&G Rhythm and Gangsta: The Masterpiece.
I Just Wanna Luv U (Give It 2 Me)
Pharrell is no stranger to working with Jay-Z, and the two collaborated on the Jigga Man’s 2000 track. With an old school beat and a lavish video featuring many scantily clad ladies, this soon became a certified hip hop classic.
My Drive Thru
The first of the Converse collaborative tracks, Pharrell, Santigold (who was then known as Santogold) and The Strokes’s frontman Julian Casablancas came together to make this cool, indie and hip hop crossover track back in 2008.
Remember this Britney track that featured on the soundtrack to Austin Powers: Goldmember? Mr Williams is not only the male vocalist on this track, but he also wrote and produced it with N.E.R.D band mate Chad Hugo.
Shake Ya Ass
Mystikal’s hit featured in About A Boy, and was parodied in the second instalment of the Scary Movie films. Pharrell, although uncredited, breaks up Mystikal’s raspy rhymes with a light, cool hook. The Neptunes also produced this hit.
Skateboard P lends his talents to one of the big up and coming names in hip hop, 2 Chainz, on lead single Feds Watching, taken from the album B.O.A.T.S II: Me Time
