NERD Smells Like BEP

Yup, NERD is gonna get a new female member, just like Black Eyed Peas did when they added Fergie. Does this mean Pharrell and Chad will start writing lame ass pop songs like the Peas? The group have roped in Rhea, a classically trained vocalist from Toronto for their upcoming album and future shows. She already made her Asian debut with the group during NERD’s F1 Rocks Singapore gig in late September.

While the whole Fergie / BEP thing has soured us on female adds to hip hop outfits, we can at least trust Pharrell to make a good decision. Right? Here’s what he had to say about it at LIfelounge, “Musically, we’re just somewhere else. The music is now very 3D. It’s something you have to hear. But you’ll see.” FYI Rhea was auditioned for the band over the internet.

NERD fans should be excited to know the group are working on a new album as a follow up to their 2008 album Seeing Sounds. Pharrell revealed a little bit about the album, “We feel like NERD have always been the punks of hip hop and the outcasts of alternative music — just a little different. But this time, we’re taking no prisoners.” NERD’s 4th album Instant Gratification is to be released next year!
