LOS ANGELES (USA Today) — Now this is how you ace every platform. Pharrell Williams served up an innately cool 2014 as our impresario of music, television, social media and fashion.

On the radio, he made us Happy, with a bright, poppy tune that became one of the best-selling singles of all time — and took him all the way to the Oscars stage. Then, Williams took a seat on The Voice, and became part of our national lexicon. What does Pharrell think? we wondered, watching him in the judge’s chair. And (for those who didn’t know him) why did seemingly every contestant want to be on his team?

It had something to do with the fact that Williams is behind most of our favorite songs on the radio (Get Lucky or Blurred Lines, anyone?). A seven-time Grammy-winning musician and producer, Williams, who launched his career as a producer via The Neptunes (think back to Britney Spears’ I’m a Slave 4 U) and as part of the band N.E.R.D., is freshly nominated for four Grammys for his second solo album, G I R L.

Notably, he’s also had a hand in several of the albums he’s competing with for album of the year, namely, Beyoncé and Ed Sheeran’s.
