N.E.R.D's female concentration
N.E.R.D drew inspiration for their new album from the female form.
The 'Lapdance' hitmakers - who formed after initially producing tracks for other artists - revealed they felt women were the "sweetest spot" for them to concentrate on when penning material for new record 'Nothing'.
Frontman Pharrell Williams told MTV News: "Women are essential to life on this planet. They just hold a very sacred place, they always have for me. My taste and appetite for women has been clearly evident in my music and my videos. We just felt like that was the sweetest spot for us to concentrate on."
However, the rapper-and-singer insisted that while the record may be primarily about women, it doesn't mean men won't enjoy it.
He said: "Just because the concept of the album is us having a conversation with women at a roundtable, it doesn't mean that that's what the audience is about.
"This album is meant and intended to inspire humans. Man, woman, whatever you are. If you can find something positive in here that motivates you, then this album is for you."Posted on 21 Jul 2010 16:30 to category : Band / Celebrity News
