N.E.R.D officially released their highly-anticipated comeback album No_One Ever Really Dies on Friday. To celebrate, Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo, and Shay Haley stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform two of their new songs – “Lemon” and “1000.”
Skipping the stage, the trio stepped outside the studio and on to Hollywood Boulevard for the gig, throwing a block party in the process. Although Rihanna and Future weren’t there to deliver their guest verses, N.E.R.D more than made up for it with the presence of Mette Towley, the dancer they recruited for both song’s music videos, and the overall enthusiasm of the three icons reunited.
Check out the clips below, including Pharrell Williams chatting about his new hair color, what it’s like to be a father to triplets, Carl Sagan, and more.
