A year later, Williams collaborated with Madonna, on the song "Hey You", which was available for download on the MSN website.
"That Girl" featuring Snoop Dogg was the final single.The album sounded very much like their previous production work; the group decided that they should make their work as N*E*R*D sound different, and re-recorded the album with the rock band Spymob. In August of the same year, the Neptunes were named "Producers of the Year" at both the Source Awards and the Billboard Music Awards.Then in 2002 their re-produced album was released worldwide, and the Neptunes reached number one in the U. Clipse released their commercial debut album Lord Willin' in August 2002.The album started at number one on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and number four on the Billboard 200, fueled by its first two singles, "Grindin'" and "When the Last Time", which peaked at number 34 and number 19 respectively on the Billboard Hot 100. The Neptunes and Williams specifically were also kept in public eye largely due to ties with Jay Z, producing several hit singles for him and two tracks on his The Black Album.The Neptunes released a self-credited album called The Neptunes Present... The track "Frontin'" was a big hit (the 34th biggest of 2003 according to Billboard).
