Drake Jumps On Official Remix Of N.E.R.D & Rihanna’s “Lemon” Song: Listen Here!
I guess the members of N.E.R.D were not happy that their comeback single “Lemon” featuring Rihanna flopped (it peaked only at #40 on the Billboard Hot 100). I bet they had imagined this song taking the whole world by storm. But that didn’t happen. And just when we all thought “Lemon” was dead and ready to be forgotten forever, here come N.E.R.D to drop an unexpected official remix to “Lemon” featuring none other than “God’s Plan” Canadian rapper Drake – four months after the release of the original. A little too late? Yes. A little too desperate? Yes. So, this is now or never. If this remix doesn’t make “Lemon” the monster hit N.E.R.D. had imagined for this song, then nothing will. So far, just a few hours after the remix was released, it is nowhere to be found on the iTunes Top 100, and that’s very worrying. But let’s give it a few more hours, though. Maybe there’s a glitch in the system…
As for the remix itself, which got released in the late hours of Saturday (March 17), it’s not that great. I mean, usually any song or remix Drake touches is magic, but for some reason I think he ruins the song a bit. It’s just that his flow is not as dope as usual. Something’s definitely a bit off here. I will remain #TeamOriginal for now.
