Well, the first brand new single from N.E.R.D. emerged on the net today, and I’m kinda disappointed.
With such strong past work by the collective of Pharrell, Chad Hugo, and Shay, the new song “Everyone Nose” seems pretty generic and the hook repetition is pretty annoying. With the blow-up of the super high energy hipster hop, that’s based off of very dumbed down shouted hooks, it seems that N.E.R.D. tried to catch the boat on this trend, instead of sticking to their guns that made them unique.
I don’t mind the breakdown that comes half-way in, but overall it just doesn’t work out to be a cohesive track.
