The United Kingdom's biggest female pop star, Natasha Bedingfield, has taken the United States by storm with the first British chart-topping hit by a female in almost 20 years. She has sold more than 10 million singles and albums worldwide and has five Top 10 U.K. singles. Her 2006 U.S. debut came with the No. 1 single, "These Words." Later that year, "Unwritten" became the most played song on mainstream American radio and earned a GRAMMY nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 49th Annual GRAMMY Awards Bedingfield’s success continued with "Pocketful of Sunshine" which also became a favorite on radio stations across the country.
World-famous producers and songwriters Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo of the Neptunes, over the course of their decade-long career, have literally changed the course of music. The duo have worked with everyone from Madonna to Justin Timberlake to Jay-Z and Gwen Stefani and helped create numerous hit songs in the past 10 years. Yet the Neptunes is who they are; N.E.R.D. is what they do. Combining Pharrell, Chad and longtime friend Shae, the group creates explorations of sounds, emotions and truth, adhering to no agenda and subscribing to no rules. The group is currently promoting their third album, Seeing Sounds.
