Under their production name, The Neptunes, Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo have helped redefine the musical careers of the likes of Robin Thicke, Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Nelly and Jay-Z, just to name a few. In their band, N.E.R.D. (No one Ever Really Dies), the guys continue to use their production skills to push the boundies of Alternative and Hip Hop. During N.E.R.D.’s continued growth it always would depend on the primary efforts of its front-man Pharrell Williams, as he would serve as the band’s main vocalist, song writer and producer. However, for the first time in their career, N.E.R.D. reached outside the group to get their new single “Hypnotize U” produced. 

The band felt inspired to to reach out to their former Virgin Records label mates, Daft Punk to produce the new song while they were working on the score and soundtrack for Disney’s new film Tron Legacy.This is the second single for their newly released album, Nothing from Star Trak/Interscope Records. Daft Punk is the only outside production to be contributed to the album, making their collaboration really stand out. The Daft Punk produced, “Hypnotize U” follows the album’s first single, “Hot -N- Fun” featuring Nelly Furtado, which became a Top 20 hit on the UK R&B Charts. The other collaboration outside of the band is with T.I. on, “Party People”. Check out the Daft Punk produced, “Hypnotize U”
