The Neptunes are an American production duo, composed of Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo. The duo is credited for contributing the sound for many successful hip hop, R&B and pop artists in the late 1990s and 2000s. The Neptunes' sound is a distinctive brand of off-kilter, stripped-down electronic funk with sounds from Middle Eastern and Asian music including percussion and woodwind. Pharrell sings and (later) raps on records and appear in music videos, while Chad tends to stay behind the scenes.

The Neptunes are estimated to have a net worth of $155 million and are one of the most successful producers in music history, noted by twenty-four Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hits. In 2009, Billboard ranked The Neptunes No. 1 on their list of Top 10 Producers of the Decade. Readers of Vibe magazine named The Neptunes as the third greatest hip hop producers of all time behind Dr. Dre and DJ Premier.
