The group’s first release since 2010’s Nothing.
We’ve been waiting for a Riri rap verse and here it is. There’d been rumors and speculation recently that Pharrell’s Neptunes side project N.E.R.D. would be reuniting for a comeback, and after their single, Lemon, dropped today, it’s now a reality. The group, which also includes members Chad Hugo and Shay Haley, haven’t released anything since Nothing in 2010, so we’re not exactly sure if this track signifies an album on the way or just a one off single. But either way, Riri slays.
The video, which dropped right after the track premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats, opens with Rihanna shaving the head of a mystery woman in a hotel room. The video then follows this newly shorn girl as she dances and twerks through a flea market.
We can only hope this means a full length album is on the way, but Rihanna’s verse is enough to tide us over for now.
