N.E.R.D. teamed up with Nelly Furtado for the sexy club jam “Hot N Fun,” off the boys’ upcoming fourth studio album, Nothing. Does the track live up to its song title, or is it more akin to the hip-hop trio’s album name? Listen below.[wpaudio url="http://idolator.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/NERD-ft.-Nelly-Furtado-Hot-N-Fun-iLeaks.com_.mp3" text="N.E.R.D. feat. Nelly Furtado - Hot N Fun"]
It’s not quite as funky and boisterous as N.E.R.D. and Neptunes’ Chad Hugo-produced Lupe Fiasco track “Love Letter To the Beat,” but it’s a solid club track, reminiscent of the band’s earlier tunes. “People don’t think anymore, they just want to feel,” talk-sings Pharrell Williams on the track. And we feel like this is sure to be blasting on our radio all summer long.
Tomorrow N.E.R.D. releases an import-only collection of highlights and rareities from their extensive career, and Pharrell, Chad and Shay Haley are also hitting the road with Erykah Badu, Janelle Monae and ?uestlove on a summer tour. But if you can’t wait to see the boys perform live, check out a video from their Temple University appearance, part of a recent college tour, featuring “Hot N Fun”:
