The Neptunes produce 'Got Your Money' to give Ol' Dirty Bastard – the most volatile member of the rap collective Wu-Tang Clan – his only pop hit

Both written and produced by The Neptunes, Kelis' 'Caught Out There' is released from her debut album, Kaleidoscope, and reaches the Top 10 in the UK

The first single from Mystikal's album, Let's Get Ready, 'Shake Ya Ass' features vocals from Williams who also produces it. The song hits No 13 in the US

Composed by Williams and Solange Knowles, with handclaps sampled from The Supremes' hit 'Where Did Our Love Go', 'I Decided' enters the UK Top 30

Horns, keyboards and a vocal loop set low in the mix as Williams collaborates with Frank Ocean to co-write and help produce the R&B track 'Sweet Life'

Produced by The Neptunes, Williams' 'Happy' sees the song's uplifting title repeated 56 times during the track. It gives him a UK No 1

Ed Sheeran at first passes on 'Sing', but after encouragement from Williams the UK singer develops the pre-existing track. The song is another UK No 1
