Tune in and turn up

Fresh off releasing the visual for their collaborative single “1000” with Future, N.E.R.D has just shared “Don’t Don’t Do It!,” a new song from their forthcoming fifth studio album No_One Ever Really Dies, set to drop this Friday, December 15.

Debuted earlier today on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio Show where Pharrell was a special guest, the track features Kendrick Lamar and the introduction was written by Frank Ocean. “He is the arch of no compromise, no concession, and very colorful with it,” Pharrell said. “And 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.”

In addition, Pharrell shared that the track’s inspiration comes from the fatal police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott from 2016 in Charlotte, North Carolina, which prompted public protest.

Have a listen below and stay tuned for more from N.E.R.D.‘s upcoming album, No_One Ever Really Dies.

Also, Kendrick Lamar definitely saw a UFO and he doesn’t care if you don’t believe him.
