Along the way, the collective garnered four GRAMMY® Awards, notched 24 Top 10 entries on the Billboard Hot 100, and earned a place in the Songwriters Hall of Fame among the 2020 class of inductees.
As the story goes, Pharrell and Chad met in Virginia Beach, VA. Teddy Riley caught wind of the duo and signed them. They claimed a place on the charts for the first time with N.O.R.E.’s “Superthug.” Chart-busting smashes followed such as Kelis’ “Milkshake”, JAY-Z’s “I Just Wanna Love U,” Mystikal’s “Shake Ya Ass,” Usher’s “U Don’t Have To Call,” and Busta Rhymes’s “Pass the Courvoisier, Part II.”
The Neptunes set the globe on fire with Britney Spears’ “I’m a Slave 4 U” and Nelly’s “Hot in Herre”. Justin Timberlake’s Justified followed, receiving multiple GRAMMY® Awards. Two years later, they collected additional awards for Mariah Carey’s The Emancipation of MiMi and Ludacris’s “Money Maker”.
Their discography consists of hits for Beyoncé, Madonna, Watch The Throne, Clipse, Kendrick Lamar, Solange, Shakira, Megan Thee Stallion, Gwen Stefani, and many more.
