What do you think of N.E.R.D’s new track Hypnotize You (produced by Daft Punk)? See the Letterman performance here.

The Neptunes are always ones to push the envelope. They remain consistent in that regard, both with the song and the performance.  Pharrell and Kanye have kept hip-hop alive and kicking over the last 10 years.  Here’s N.E.R.D.’s latest chapter:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Props to Daft Punk for the beat.  Looks like they’re inspiring more than Kanye in hip-hop:

Pharrell has been stretching out musically lately. The new N.E.R.D. could go in many directions. Here are a few possibilities.

Swedish House Mafia ft. Pharrell – One

Pharrell – Fun, Fun, Fun (from the Despicable Me soundtrack–yep, the kids’ movie with Steve Carell…)

Robin Thicke – My Life (also produced by Pharrell for Despicable Me–he scored the whole project–and he has Robin Thicke sounding just like Justin Timberlake…)

And, of course there’s the Christian Rich project Pharrell co-signed a while back.

It’s been a good Summer for music.
