Although folks are still bouncing-around bouncing to “Lemon,” N.E.R.D is back with another bouncy song called “1000” featuring Future.
The boisterous track has plenty electro-pop flavor as it plays on the numeric theme the numbers one, zero, zero, zero. This is evident in the chorus when Pharrell yells, “In the mirror, there’s a hero / One, zero, zero, zero.”
Hendrxx plays along in the second verse, spitting luxury rhymes like, "Brand new coupe cost couple hundred thousand / Got some models in the bed and they coming by the thousand / Them young goons never sleep, they somewhere prowling / Everywhere we go they tote a chopper by the thousand."
In addition, the tune also features a new Shay Haley verse since his rapping appearance on N.E.R.D's 2010 effort, Nothing.
"Karma makes sure tears will drop / You’ll be wishing that your year will stop / It will be a thousandfold one, zero, zero, zero, dot," he raps on the song.
N.E.R.D's No_One Ever Really Dies is set to drop on Dec. 15 just in time for the holiday season. The 11-song collection features cameos Andre 3000, Kendrick Lamar, Gucci Mane, Wale and more.
The LP is available for pre-order right now iTunes and other digital platforms.
