On Wednesday (Nov. 1), N.E.R.D. kept their word and unleashed their comeback record "Lemon," featuring Rihanna, on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show. The effervescent single is accompanied by a new video, which briefly features the Bajan songstress and a bald-headed model, who eventually steals the show.

As the newly bald model struts throughout an empty bike store in her tank top and baggy jeans, Riri's boastful verse serves as her soundtrack.
"This ain't a scrimmage, motherf*cker we ain't finished, I told you we won't stop," raps Riri with zeal. Despite their absence in the video, N.E.R.D.'s front-man, Pharrell Williams, punches in with a colorful verse of his own. "Hate! Bad b*tches wanna be my bae/ Hate! Hold me down like the C.I.A/ Hate!
