We would jam out to all the songs in the car, and memorized every word, even the talking parts - I loved ALL of it and I still do!!
Nelly's had a plenty of good songs since his Country Grammar album (Dilemma -Feat. Kelly Rowland, "Over and Over" with Tim McGraw, "Grillz," "Air Force Ones," and "Hot in Herre"). But his last cd back in 2008, Brass Knuckles, couldn't have done well because I never heard a thing about it.
So what has our boy Nelly been up to lately?
1. Move over P90X & Tony Horton, Nelly is releasing a workout video/regime titled "Celebrity Sweat" in September .
Here's what Nelly says about working out...
“People think I just woke up all of a sudden and I was this big, but they haven’t been paying attention… If you look at the pictures from ‘04 to now, you can see the change. You can see me go from 160 to 170, 170 to 175, 175 to 180 to 190 (pounds). You put in all this hard work, and people want to discredit you. But you can transform your body in six to eight months. In two years, you can create a whole new person.”
2. Nelly is also filling in as a radio personality at Hot 104.1 for a dj on maternity leave in St. Louie (Nelly's hometown). Source
I heard him talking about his new gig this morning on the Twin Cities' KDWB radio station and he has a good voice for radio!
3. Lastly, Nelly's releasing two new singles, "Just a Dream" - for the ladies and "Tippin' in Da Club," - for the clubs. They are both available beginning yesterday on iTunes.
He's coming out with his new cd 5.0 this fall and it's said to feature Janet Jackson, Diddy, Akon, St. Lunatics and Usher... do you think Nelly will make a come back?
