After making their fans wait over seven years, N.E.R.D. will return with their fifth album "No_One Ever Really Dies" on December 15th.
Following the audio and video for "1000" with Future, the group reveals another anticipated track, "Don't Don't Do It!" with two giants, Kendrick Lamar and Frank Ocean.
Pharrell took to Beats 1 to premier the song as well as speak on it:
"Don’t Don’t Do It!" is inspired by the 2016 police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, North Carolina (naturally, the cop did not have charges filed against him).
He also spoke on Frank Ocean:
He is the art of no compromise, no concession, and very colorful with it. That’s what, I feel like, that’s what is very interesting about his journey. Because if you understand him then, you know anything that he’s ever done is just what he’s really, really, really felt.
