In case you haven’t already heard, N.E.R.D.—the hip-hop/funk production trio comprised of Pharell Williams, Chad Hugo, and Shay Haley—are back with their first new single in seven years, “Lemon” feat. Rihanna. However, the track might not be what you would have expected from the Academy Award-winning singer-songwriter/record producer behind “Happy.” Williams lets out all of his frustration with society in the post-Trump age. He speaks about all his haters, immigration, and Donald Trump.
The music video was directed by Todd Tourso, Scott Cudmore, and Phi Hollinger. It centers around dancer Mette Towley, who gets her head shaved by Rhianna in the opening sequence, before charging through the middle of a bike shop after-hours and breaking out some sick new dance moves from “Single Ladies” choreographer JaQuel Knight.
