The Daft Punk factor : The presence of vocalist/Neptune/producer Pharrell Williams as a headliner is notable for a few rumor-fueling reasons. First, he's not necessarily performing in support of a new solo album, but he's been ubiquitous on the charts over the last year. Among his most prominent hits?
