    Just fantastic. I love the philosophy… One of my resolutions for the year was to not take things so seriously, so I can dig it.:idea:

    Very cool guys, looks like you had an awesome time making the album. Can’t wait for Tuesday when Nothing drops. Love the message you guys deliver. Also just wanted to say I had a great time meeting you at RSVP, hopefully we’ll see eachother again sometime soon.

    running into N*E*R*D + Fam-Lay riding backwards on bicycles would be one of the most random experiences imaginable. 😆

    Im definitely feeling the concept behind this album. The thing I love about N.E.R.D is every album is fresh, its new and it always lifts the soul. Stay blessed.

    I just so happen to catch this video in the studio and I had to stop what I was doing to watch it. Keep on inspiring guys, I dont no where I would be if I didn’t see yall, Yezzy and Lupe in concert. Just please continue to inspire.

    Could we have more of these type of videos please, cause this is just rockin’
    Coming from Holland, it’s so funny to watch you guys in Amsterdam riding those bikes. This is cool stuff man, thanks for the video.

    I hope there will be another video like this, but instead of showing the concerts, I would like to see the studio process.

    Keep doin what you doing, keep rocking.

    Brazil on Friday, the eager fans

    Victory is the best song from Nothing, The limit is the sky…

    Tickets are expensive, many fans can not go to the show … sad. Come do a show just NERD, not with other artists … Disclose here in Brazil, many still do not know them. See you on TV

    Pharrell, You’ve inspired me soo much by your creativity work and by your knowledge and interests of knowing and wanting to know and learn many sorts of topics in the world.
    I think it’s great how you combin all of what you’ve learned from your experience and built it to one subject.
    I wish i could not only be inspired by seeing you but also by meeting you in person, that would mean a lot to me.
    Come to ISRAEL !!! :biggrin::mrgreen::biggrin:

    Hey Pharrell & Chad…I would like to thank yall for the beautiful and inspiring music you have been sharing with for these many years. You two inspire me as a musician, music producer, and fan of music myself. I love the new NERD album and hope you continue to bring us more n.e.r.d albums and the music we have grown on love with yall productions. Oh and can’t forget Shae lol u da man. “Oh no hands I love the way you dance” lamo
