N.E.R.D is back on the scene with a new track with Rihanna called “Lemon”. Many hip hop fans have been looking forward to seeing this act hit the stage again. In this hot collaboration, Rihanna shows that she knows how to get down on a funky hip hop track. This may lead to N.E.R.D. helping Rihanna come out with a hip hop album.
Kendrick Lamar continues to rock the microphone in the hip hop world. NERD dropped their new single “Don’t Don’t Do It”. Fortunately, this hot single features one of the hottest hip hop artists around today. This track was influenced by the talented Pharrell.
The overall sound of this new song has a unique texture and vibe that can capture your attention with ease. The track starts off with a laid back beat and smooth lyrics written by Frank Ocean. The track suddenly switches to a hard beat as Pharell says, “Don’t Do It.” It’s also important to note that there are guitar strings and hard-hitting drums in the background.
At the top of the song, Kendrick blesses the track with his platinum voice. It’s easy to see that Kendrick has no problem with blending in with the song and hitting his stride. Kendrick managed to hit 100 bars on the track within a matter of seconds. How many rappers can say they can hit 100 bars on a track within seconds?
The sky continues to be the limit for these talented music stars. Hopefully, they will continue to entertain us with their flair and voices.
