After seven years away, N.E.R.D. staged a surprise comeback late 2017 with the Rihanna-assisted “Lemon.” Equally surprising, out of nowhere a remix dropped late Saturday night, five months after the single’s official release. Guess Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo and Shay Haley weren’t happy “Lemon” stalled on No. 40 at the Billboard Hot 100.
Hitmaker Drake received the call to hop on a remix. Normally, when Drake and Rihanna join forces, magic happens. “What’s My Name,” “Take Care,” “Work” and “Too Good” all became bona fide hits. Sadly, I don’t think this latest collabo will follow suit. To be fair, Drake’s contribution seems more like an afterthought, so it’s not really in the same category as the others.
