Recently, Pharrell talked about the project being more geared toward a female audience.
"This album, I think, is made for the women who like to take a load off and feel," Pharrell said in an interview. "This album is all about feeling. We made the first three albums, there was a lot of thought put into it. But this album, I feel we put a lot more feeling into it. There is thought, but there's more feeling...I feel like did what we set out to do on the first album which is to have a lot of fun and give people music that they could feel because I feel music is in a wonderful place right now. It's changing -- it's feel good music -- there's also the wars and I just think people are tired of thinking about that type of stuff all day long and they just want to go back to feeling so they can remember who they are, but, we just want to talk to the girls..." (Total KISS TV)
The group is known for releasing nearly a decade of music together.
The acronym N.E.R.D. stands for "No One Ever Really Dies," but childhood friends Chad Hugo, Pharrell Williams, and Shay most certainly used the group to proudly emphasize the nerdier aspects of their musical personalities. Before this side project took shape, Hugo and Williams -- as the Neptunes -- had established themselves as giants in the field of pop production, whether they were working with hardcore rappers, smooth crooners, or teen pop groups.
