Following rumors of their return, N.E.R.D is back and singing a new tune.
The trio compromised of Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo, and Shay Hale shared a brand new single entitled, “Lemon,” featuring Rihanna.
“Hate! There’s a light and dark army, which side you choose?,” Pharrell sings over the untempo track. “Hate! If not now then when? / Hate! And if not me then who? / Hate! Don’t drink the Kool-Aid, my friends / Hate! I tried to tell y’all about this dude.” Rihanna joins in on the confident bop with some boastful bars of her own. “Tell the paparazzi get the lens right,” she rhymes. Later adding: “It’s Rihanna n****, my constellation is space”.
“Lemon” is the group’s first single since 2010’s “Hypnotize U.” Bounce around with N.E.R.D below.
