Pharrell

Pharrell proved his place as a genius producer when he took Gwen Stefani, one of the most celebrated rocker chicks of the early 2000's, and helped transform her into a successful pop solo artist. The most polarizing of the songs they recorded together for her debut, Love. Angel. Music. Baby. was "Hollaback Girl," but it's also the one that gave her her first No. 1 on Billboard and a parody on Family Guy.
