If you weren't already aware of Pharrell Williams, this past year has provided a number of ways to get acquainted with the singer, producer, and smash-hit songwriter who took top honors at the 2014 Grammys with four wins, a total of seven in his lifetime. Even if you managed to miss the culture-moving hit trifecta of "Get Lucky," "Blurred Lines," and "Happy," you've still probably seen the much-discussed Vivienne Westwood hat he wore to the Grammy Awards. (The hat-or someone masquerading as the hat-has its own Twitter account and 21,000 followers.)

Before he became a household name, Pharrell had a hand in several chart-topping favorites over the years. In addition to his solo albums and guest spots, his group N.E.R.D. has managed a few hits of its own. When he's not writing or performing, Pharrell makes up half of the production duo Neptunes, who are responsible for a number of smashes from the likes of No Doubt, Justin Timberlake, and Kelis. He's even been credited for helping some of today's biggest pop sensations find their sound, including Beyoncé's first solo song, "Work It Out," which was featured in Austin Powers in Goldmember, where the Queen Bey played Foxxy Cleopatra.

This playlist pieces together some of the best beats from throughout Pharrell's career. Whether you're looking for a blast from the past, a recent blockbuster, or club banger, there's something here that will get you "happy" and your feet moving-whether it's on the dance floor or on the treadmill.

If you are looking for a small lightweight clear MP3 player, look no further.The battery lasts about 5-6 hours with bluetooth. With wired earphones it should last about 15 hours.The bluetooth connection is pretty good, comparing with smartphones. Check the AGPTEK 16GB MP3 Player with Bluetooth Here .... http://boseworkout.com
