By Constant Gardner, Joyce, and Katie K

Pharrell Williams' influence loomed large over the music of summer 2013, with the singer and producer having had a hand in two of the season's most heavily-played songs, Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" and Daft Punk's "Get Lucky," not to mention Jay Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail, Azealia Banks' "#ATM Jam" the Despicable Me soundtrack, and lots more.

    You know what’s awesome, in N*E*R*D’s “Stay Together”, he talks about a girl by which he actually means hip-hop and how it died, and in the song he uses the melody of A Tribe Called Quest’s “We Can Get Down”
