Thirteen may classically be an unlucky number, but not for Pharrell Williams. In 2013, he was at the production helm for two of the year’s biggest hits — Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” and Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.” Skateboard P has already kicked off 2014 in earnest, with his track “Happy” having been nominated for an Oscar, and with his oversized throwback hat playing up to his humorous side. So what does Pharrell have planned for the rest of the year?

Well, we’re not totally sure of everything that’s on Pharrell’s docket, but we’d love it if he could sprinkle some magical production dust on some notable collaborations this year, just like in 2013. Whether he’s throwing some shine to groups who haven’t yet seen mainstream success or he’s getting some legendary artists back into the radio rotation, we have no doubt that whatever Pharrell touches this year would turn to gold.

There’s tons of talent out there, but there are some special folks who could easily become household names with Pharrell’s backing. Take a look at our gallery of artists we think could burn up the charts with a little boost from one of the best super-producers out there.
