N*E*R*D’s Shae Haley On Kaleidoscope, The Kelis Album That Started It All By Aaron Whyte

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
Congrats to Aaron Whyte our Forum Member and Co. Admin for making his Fader debut with his Kelis article about the album that started it all. Back in 1999, a modern classic was set upon the world: Kelis‘ debut album, Kaleidoscope. It was the perfect soundtrack for the eve of a new millennium. Spaced-out pads, hard drum kicks, and cold synths gave the album a distinct electro-n-b feel we’d never heard before before.

Kaleidoscope brought together a collective sci-fi vision of the 21st century, and presented it in song. Over the span of 14 tracks, the album covered everything from troubled relationships to pondering the existence of alien lifeforms. Hell, there was even a song about her stoner boyfriend getting sent by NASA to colonize Mars, because… why not? Regardless of the subject matter of any given song, there was a clear theme throughout Kaleidoscope: the idea of escapism, whether that meant escaping a cheating partner, a bad situation, or even an entire planet. It felt driven by the underlying optimism that something greater was waiting around the corner. Check out the whole article HERE.

OTHERtone Episode 47 With N*E*R*D (2017), N*E*R*D – Rollinem 7’s feat. André 3000

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
Right after N*E*R*D’s ComplexCon album listening party, they went to have a special N*E*R*D OTHERtone episode with Pusha T., Fam-Lay, Rob Walkey and more where they talked about the early Neptunes days, their new N*E*R*D album ‘No_One Ever Really Dies’ and the features they’ve got this time around. Pharrell revealed that they wanted to be called D.R.U.G.S. in the early Neptunes Days “Doing Right Under God’s Supervision” and said that there are no hidden tracks on the new N*E*R*D album.


“We didn’t want it to be long, we wanted to be right”. Scott Vener played a question by Tyler’ The Creator where he asked why the NOTHING album sounded like two different projects which indeed was. N*E*R*D hated the album especially the uptempo tracks like ‘Party People’ and ‘Hot N’ Fun’ which were the Labels fault, they wanted uptempo tracks. They also talked about their new single ‘Lemon‘ which initially was made for Diddy back in 2014 but he was busy and declined the tune which then went to Rihanna but I didn’t make the final cut as well. Scott Vener also premiered the studio version of the André 3000 collaboration titled ‘Rollinem 7’s’, you can check out the whole show HERE and the new N*E*R*D track below.

N*E*R*D Preview New Album ‘No_One Ever Really Dies’ Live At ComplexCon

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
The wait is over guys, after 7 years (not counting the Spongebob release) N*E*R*D is back with a new album titled ‘No_One Ever Really Dies’. ComplexCon, make some motherfucking noise. We are here right now because no one ever really dies,”. The album will have 11 tracks including A-list features such as Gucci Mane, Wale, Future, Kendrick Lamar, M.I.A., André 3000, Ed Sheeran and Rihanna who is already featured on their first single ‘Lemon’, which actually was a Diddy tune first, but went to Rihanna but didn’t make the final cut on her ‘Anti’ album.

N*E*R*D took the stage to debut their new album, No_One Ever Really Dies, on the first night of ComplexCon in Long Beach, California. The stage featured real cars for props, vibrant lighting, and dozen of dancers keeping the energy up as the album played. “Good evening. Welcome to the N*E*R*D listening party,” said a female voice. What most thought was going to be a concert turned into a massive album listening party with N*E*R*D there to witness it all from the back of the stage. They watched on a van as they jammed out to their own bangers and observed dozens of dancers parading across the stage and the venue’s first floor area.

After a few tracks, Shae joined the dancers to turn up, then later Pharrell. “The album’s not coming out tomorrow,” Pharrell explained. “We’re giving it to you. It’s yours. You got it before everybody else.” said Pharrell. As the night concluded, the female voice returned and announced, “End of program. Good night.” It was then that the dancers took a bow and welcomed N*E*R*D to the front of the stage. Pharrell took a bow on his knees, which he held for about a minute, and showed deep reverence to the crowd — who he thanked frequently throughout the show.

After the lights went dark, he returned for an encore performance and spit Rihanna’s “Lemon” verse in her absence. The lights went out and the crowd demanded the latest single one more time. He obliged and performed “Lemon” one last time before calling it a night. I haven’t checked any snippets yet, but if you can’t stay strong, then scroll down for a full preview of every song below, the album does not have a release date yet so stay tuned for more information, thanks to BigPUNoy for the videos.

[Intro: Pharrell Williams]
The truth will set you free
But first, it’ll piss you off

[Verse 1: Pharrell Williams]
Hate! Bad bitches wanna be my bae
Hate! Hunt me down like the C.I.A
Hate! Side of my car, tryna see my face
Hate! Want me to beat it like the T.I. case
Oh (hate!) and if it’s heated I’ma feed my face
Hate! And best believe, it’s gon’ be outrageous
Hate! Hatin’ niggas can’t believe my race
Hate! Niggas hit you with the Eli face, oh

[Refrain: Pharrell Williams]
Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’
Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’
Scrunchin’ their eyes with your name in their mouth and
Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’

[Verse 2: Pharrell Williams]
Hate! You keep askin’ me where I’m from
Hate! About the borders and, “Did I run?”
Hate! Keep askin’ how I feel ’bout guns
Hate! There’s a light and dark army, which side you choose? Oh
Hate! If not now then when?
Hate! And if not me then who?
Hate! Don’t drink the Kool-Aid, my friends
Hate! I tried to tell y’all about this dude

[Refrain: Pharrell Williams]
Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’
Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’
Hate supplements are found right in their couches
Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’

[Interlude]
Wait, wait a minute
Shout out to them people, people
Wait, wait a minute
P-p-p-people, people
Wait, wait a minute
Mad ethnic right now

[Chorus: Rihanna]
I get it how I live it
I live it how I get
Count the mothafuckin’ digits
I pull up with a lemon
Not ’cause she ain’t livin’
It’s just your eyes get acidic
And this here ain’t a scrimmage
Mothafucka, we ain’t finished
I told you we won’t stop
A nigga ’bouta business
Like yours, but you rent it
Wave hello to the top
Nigga the Veyron glide
Tell the paparazzi get the lens right
Got the window down, top, blowin’ la
Got the hazards on, only doin’ five
You can catch me, Rih, in the new La Ferrar’

[Verse 3: Rihanna]
And the truck behind me got arms
Yeah, longer than LeBron
Just waitin’ for my thumb like The Fonz
Woo! This beat tastes like lunch
But it’s runnin’ from veneers and it’s runnin’ from the fronts
But everyday, hey, wasn’t lemonade
I was afraid, once a nigga graduate
Would I be okay?
So I prayed and I played
It’s Rihanna, nigga
My constellation in space
Warp speed, Doctor Spock couldn’t chase, nigga

[Bridge: Pharrell Williams]
Nigga, bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face
Bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face
Bath, bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face
Bath, bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face
Bath, bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face
Bath, bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face
Bath, bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face
Bath, bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face
Bath, bath salt, bitin’ speakers in the face

[Chorus: Pharrell Williams]
I get it how I live it
I live it how I get
Count the mothafuckin’ digits
I pull up with a lemon
Not ’cause she ain’t livin’
It’s just your eyes get acidic
And this here ain’t a scrimmage
Mothafucka, we ain’t finished
I told you we won’t stop
A nigga ’bouta business
Like yours, but you rent it
Wave hello to the top
Nigga the Veyron glide
Tell the paparazzi get the lens right
Got the window down, top, blowin’ la
Got the hazards on, only doin’ five
You can catch me…

[Refrain: Pharrell Williams]
Bouncin’ around, bouncin’ around, bouncin’

[Outro: Pharrell Williams]
You can catch me
Wait, wait a minute
Wait, wait a minute
Wait, wait a minute
Wait, wait a minute
Wait, wait a minute
Wait, wait a minute
Wait, wait a minute
Wait, wait a minute
