“The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.”
We heard a new Kanye West verse earlier this week, then Chris Brown released an epic 45-song album, and now the alternative hip-hop trio N.E.R.D. just dropped a new song after being in hiatus. We’re shook, and it’s only Wednesday.
The vibrant new tune features the Barbadian songstress Rihanna and is full of the same bounce, beats, and genre-bending elements from the trio. You can hear it above and watch the accompanying visual (or “tutorial”). From billboards on the streets to various ads seen during the recent Camp Flog Gnaw festival, it seems like Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo and Shay Haley are set to make a triumphant return to the music charts. What’s next? N.E.R.D. will be performing live this weekend in Long Beach, CA for ComplexCon.
