Details Release Date: Nov 02, 2010; Lead Performance: N.E.R.D.; Genre: Pop

When not producing other artists as the Neptunes, Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo (along with rapper Shae Haley) make adventurous music of their own as N.E.R.D. The trio’s fourth album Nothing, keeps the revelry of past work intact, beginning with the carefree ''Party People'' and ending with the euphoric ''Hot-N-Fun.'' In between lie horn-layered explorations like evolution-
pondering ''Life as a Fish'' and ''Help Me,'' on which they fight against negativity. With these masterfully crafted new tracks, they’re ready for battle. B+
