Along with the audio premiere, the group has also debuted the official music video which is directed by Todd Tourso & Scott Cudmore. Rihanna is rapping! ‘Lemon’ marks the first release since N.E.R.D.’s fourth studio album Nothing, which came out in 2010. Watch the video below.
It’s also worth noting that the band has signed with Columbia Records, which is Pharrell’s label home as well. N.E.R.D.’s last two albums were released through Star Trak / Interscope.
