N.E.R.D. Is Back and Turning Lemons into Twerk-Worthy Tunes

I have been contemplating if or when I’d be granted the chance to utter these fine words of excitement and gratification… but it’s finally time to say: N.E.R.D. is back! Less thought-over, however, was with who. Can you say RiRi?! The feel-good trio made up of Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo and Shay Hayley have just dropped a get-out-ya-seat joint dubbed “Lemon,” and called on Barbados badass Rhianna to drop a verse. As one of the most influential hip hop meets funk rock bands around today, we are giving gratitude to the most high for allowing the legends to deliver more goodness. Not only did the highly-praised group release a three-minute joint for fans to get down to, but the N.E.R.D. crew is laying it all out with an equally uplifting visual effort.

While Rihanna starts off the music video giving her girl a beautifully bald new look, it’s really the effortless multi-talent Mette Towley who gives the video so much life. The foot work savvy queen struts her stuff, twerks it out, and hits every move you attempt to do behind closed doors as she makes her way down a neon-lit market way. The move-ya-shoulders beat seamlessly compliments the “I handle my bizz” style lyricism. This new joint is sure to get anyone through the week as we await a (fingers-crossed) forthcoming album and their upcoming ComplexCon performance. Go on and hit play in the jump above to get ya groove on.
