Not content with having the song of the summer that wasn’t “Despacito”, Rihanna is back to remind you that she is more than just a makeup mogul and Puma pusher. This time she teams up with everyone’s fave college band from back in the day, Pharrell-fronted alternative band N.E.R.D. RiRi also put the singing on hold and decided to one up Taylor Swift in this year’s Unexpected Rapping Pop Stars race by dropping a few bars!
Ri definitely holds her own channeling P. Diddy’s “Finna Get Loose” flow while spitting verses obviously written by Skateboard P. She shows up in the video long enough to shave a model/dancer bald before the clip settles on being a retread of Kanye’s “Faded” clip as the dance channels her inner Teyana Taylor surrounded by a dramatically lit outdoor mall. “Lemon” isn’t the amazing collabo some are trying to will into existence, but it’s still an unexpected welcome surprise from N.E.R.D and Rihanna and a reminder that the girl can (almost) do no wrong… and I mean c’mon, isn’t Ri’s “Ferrawwwrrrr” not the highlight of this whole project!?
