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!).
