The producer turned iconic frontman has been tightening his grip on the international pop stage since emerging with his skateboard hip-hop punk band N*E*R*D in the early ‘00s.
Since going solo in the mid ‘00s, Williams has blown up on the hip-hop pop world stage, working on projects across the board.
Piling up a discography of uppity dance floor movers such as ‘Get Lucky’, ‘Happy’ and ‘Marilyn Monroe’ – from his newly-released album, Girl (2014) – Williams is getting himself involved in some interesting collaborations. His most impressive work is that done in collaboration with the eponymous dance-robots, Daft Punk, which tucks into a variation of dance genres, from ‘70s disco through to early ‘90s pop.
With exception to his plastered-on baby-face smirk and one or two goofy hats – a gimmick exhausted by the enigmatic ‘90s pop personality Jamiroquai – Williams continues to shepherd hip-hop radio pop in the right direction, turning out a couple of high flying US Billboard numbers annually.
