Hours after its release, Rihanna‘s faithful fan base – affectionately christened ‘The Navy’ – continue to sing the Grammy winner’s praises for her bars on N.E.R.D.‘s surprise drop, ‘Lemon.’
As we reported here, the tune has silenced and confirmed longstanding rumors of the Pharrell Williams-led group’s reunion and soon-to-come new album. Featuring a flow from Rih that would make even the most seasoned emcees envious, her adventurous contribution to the cut earned a thumbs up from many – That Grape Juice included.
The problem? Some are accusing the ‘Work’ wailer of fashioning her flow after another rapper/singer: Fergie. See the Twitter responses inside and let us know if you agree:
I feel like this NERD song with Rihanna was sent to Fergie and she rejected it … pic.twitter.com/siILPhzOGo
