Pharrell Williams turns 43 today—happy birthday, dude! Solo artist or as part of The Neptunes, the Virginia Beach native has crafted some of the phattest, phreshest, most phorward-thinking beats for nearly half his life.

We've rummaged through Pharrell's lengthy discography to locate all the best stuff—dating back to 1992. Some tracks are iconic (Britney's innocence-ditching sex-romp "Slave 4 U") and/or catchy as all hell (Kelis' infectious bass-bounce sing-along "Milkshake"), while others are more obscure gems that didn't blaze the charts, but are still damn good (hey, Toni Braxton!).

Listen to Fuse's picks for Pharrell's 10 hottest tracks. What are you waiting for? Get clickin'!
