Pharrell

In music and entertainment, Pharrell Williams can do it all. A creative force to be reckoned with, he wears many hats other than the now-famous Vivienne Westwood mountain hat he sported at the Grammys: he's a s singer, songwriter, rapper, producer, fashion designer and much more (look at his resume!) – and he's been behind both his own and many other artists' memorable hits. His soundscapes and songwriting have shaped the sonic style of many, while never falling short of making listeners simply feel good.

In celebration of his success, we’ve compiled this exclusive list of Pharrell’s 20 biggest Billboard Hot 100 hits, including those he’s performed, written and/or produced.

This ranking is based on actual performance on the weekly Billboard Hot 100 chart (through April 15, 2017). Songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at No. 100 earning the least.
