NERD Recruits A Rapping Rihanna For Their New Lemon Song & Video!


N.E.R.D. have released their first new music for seven years.

Rihanna lends her vocals in the song, and also stars in the video, which was co-directed by Todd Tourso and Scott Cudmore.

After many #NoOneEverReallyDies teasers, the trio's loud, sexy, bouncing sound comes back in the form of a collaborative track with Rihanna titled "Lemon", complete with a mesmerizing music video.

Alluding to Pharrell William's retired noughties group, the posters stated, "No_one Ever Really Dies" - an acrostic for N.E.R.D.

Surprisingly, "Lemon" marks Pharrell's first collaboration with Rihanna as a solo artist, N.E.R.D member, or through his production duo the Neptunes. "Ma'fucka, we ain't finished / I tell you, we won't stop ..." N.E.R.D. will be performing at ComplexCon on November 4. Yes, rapping - literally no one was prepared for this.

With the singer giving her company a hug after shaving her head, the woman proceeds to dance and twerk through a late-night market, and raps along to the words of Rihanna's verse.
