N.E.R.D. Adds a New Female Vocalist to Their BandN_E_R_D__Aug25
The Hip Hop/Alternative/Rock band switches things up for their fourth album titled Instant Gratification, by adding a female member to their group. N.E.R.D. enlists a singer by the name of Rhea as the female vocalist for their band making her first appearance on their 2010 album. Pharrell had this to say about the new addition to the band:

“Musically, we’re just somewhere else [with her],” Pharrell told MTV News. “The music is now very 3-D. It’s something you have to hear. But you’ll see. We’re definitely somewhere else. I want to leave that impact moment for when you purchase your download and you purchase your CD. The music is very three-dimensional. We’re just really excited. We feel like N.E.R.D. has 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.”
“Now you have this little Tinkerbell that’s just stepped in and has been amazing,” he said. “It’s made it a fun process. We can go in so many more directions, because we have the vocal support.”

This isn’t the first time a group added a female vocalist to their group while their career was in progress; Black Eyed Peas did a successful move by adding Fergie to their group.
N.E.R.D. fans, how do you feel?
