Sono passati sette anni dalla loro ultima fatica discografica ed ora i NERD hanno rilasciato un nuovo brano “Lemon” che li vede collaborare con Rihanna.

Il nuovo singolo è la prima canzone della band di Pharrel Williams dal 2010 e ne sono state rilasciate due versioni, una con la collega amata in tutto il mondo Rihanna e l’altra versione con solo i tre membri della band.

Ad accompagnare l’uscita del nuovo brano è stato girto anche un video clip che è stato presentato durante il programma radiofonico Beats1 di Zane Lowe.

L’ultima apparizione live della band di Pharrel e compagni risale al 2014 e sembrava fosse essere l’ultima, in seguito alle dichiarazioni rilasciate da Chad Hugo che all’inizio del 2017 aveva fatto capire che voleva lasciare il mondo dell’industria musicale. Invece il trio tra poche ore torneranno insieme sul palco con due appuntamenti che si terranno il 4 e 5 novembre a Long Beach, in California, dove si svolgerà il ComplexCon 2017.

Lemon – Testo

[Pharrell Williams]

The truth will set you free
But first, it’ll piss you off

[Pharrell Williams]

Hate! Bad bitches wanna be my bae
Hate! Hold me down like the C.I.A
Hate! Side of my car, tryna see my face
Hate! Want me to beat it like the T.I. case
Oh (hate!) and if it’s heated I’ma feed my face
Hate! And best believe, it’s gon’ be outrageous
Hate! Hatin’ niggas can’t believe my race
Hate! Niggas hit you with the Eli face, oh

[Pharrell Williams]

Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’
Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’
Scrunchin’ their eyes with your name in their mouth and
Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’

[Pharrell Williams]

Hate! You keep askin’ me where I’m from
Hate! About the borders and did I run?
Hate! Keep askin’ how I feel ’bout guns
Hate! It’s a light and dark army, which side you choose? Oh
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

[Pharrell Williams]

Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’
Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’
Hate supplements are found right in their couches
Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’

[Interlude]

Wait, wait a minute
Shout out to them people, people
Wait, wait a minute
P-p-p-people, people
Wait, wait a minute
Mad ethnic right now

[Rihanna]

I get it how I live it
I live it how I get
Count the mothaf*ckin’ digits
I pull up with a lemon
Not ’cause she ain’t livin’
It’s just your eyes get acidic
And this here ain’t a scrimmage
Mothaf*cka, we ain’t finished
I told you we won’t stop
A nigga ’bouta business
Like yours, but you rent it
Wave hello to the top
Nigga the Veyron glide
Tell the paparazzi get the lens right
Got the window down, top, blowin’ la
Got the hazards on, only doin’ five
You can catch me, Rih, in the new La Ferrar’

[Rihanna]

And the truck behind me got arms
Yeah, longer than LeBron
Just waitin’ for my thumb like The Fonz
Woo! This beat tastes like lunch
But it’s runnin’ from veneers and it’s runnin’ from the fronts
But everyday, hey, wasn’t lemonade
I was afraid, once a nigga graduate
Would I be okay?
So I prayed and I prayed
It’s Rihanna, nigga
My constellation in space
Warp speed, Doctor Spock couldn’t chase, nigga

[Pharrell Williams]

Nigga, bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face
Bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face
Bath, bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face (x7)

[Pharrell Williams]

I get it how I live it
I live it how I get
Count the mothaf*ckin’ digits
I pull up with a lemon
Not ’cause she ain’t livin’
It’s just your eyes get acidic
And this here ain’t a scrimmage
Mothaf*cka, we ain’t finished
I told you we won’t stop
A nigga ’bouta business
Like yours, but you rent it
Wave hello to the top
Nigga the Veyron glide
Tell the paparazzi get the lens right
Got the window down, top, blowin’ la
Got the hazards on, only doin’ five
You can catch me…

[Pharrell Williams]

Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’

[Pharrell Williams]

You can catch me
Wait, wait a minute (x8)
