N.E.R.D - Hypnotize U

Posted 5 years ago
Producer:
Daft Punk
Album:
Nothing

I was in 7th grade when I first heard Lapdance by N.E.R.D., the side project of super-producers The Neptunes. My life completely changed. For those of us misfits and outcasts, who skated around listening to Misfits and Outkast, N.E.R.D. were our voice, and my admiration for their boundary breaking ways is as strong as ever after hearing new releases Hot N’ Fun and Help Me Live. Comprised of childhood friends Shae Haley, Chad Hugo and Pharrell Williams, the band’s been known for merging various genres and it seems like Nothing has really changed on their new single Hypnotize U. French duo Daft Punk, best known stateside for their hit One More Time, provide the production, crafting a dulcifying melody with idiosyncratic hits and techno drums, while on the vocal side Pharrell hits us with a dose of his trademark falsetto vocals guaranteed to put any female companion into a state of ataraxia (look it up). Those finding themselves appropriately hypnotized should circle their calendars for November 2, when N.E.R.D. will have a whole lot more Nothing to offer the world.
