I think I speak for everyone when I say the new N.E.R.D album was the music that no one saw coming and now no one knows how they existed without. No_One Ever Really Dies is everything we need while equally being nothing like anything we’ve ever heard before.
The album was inspired by the turbulent state of the world and touches on everything
from racism and police brutality to existentialism and self determination.
The trio managed to seamlessly blend hip-hop, neo-soul, jazz and pop into a 51-minute
creatively iconic album and the track list features some legends including Kendrick, Andre 3000 and Rihanna.
If you haven’t had time to listen to it since it dropped last Friday, you need to re-evaluate your life and get it together. With the correspondent release of Eminem’s album
Revival and Jeezy’s Pressure you might be able to craft a decent argument. Maybe.
