NellyCover of Nelly

I always liked Nelly every since he was with the St. Lunatics. When he went solo in 2000 with his debut album Country Grammar Nelly was on his way. Country Grammar which was the title for the album this single was a
top ten hit. The Country Grammar album is Nelly’s top selling album to date. Nelly’s critics thought he was a novelty when he first debut. Nelly showed them that he was here to stay with his second album Nellyville.This album produced number one hits “Hot in Here” and “Dilemma” featuring
Kelly Roland former singer of Destiny’s Child. Nelly had other singles on Nellyville like “Work It” featuring Justin Timberlake, “Air Force One”,featuring Murphy Lee and the St. Lunatics, “Pimp Juice” and “#1”. Nelly is
an artist that has the cross over appeal. He has worked with artist like Tim McGraw “Over and Over”, Brian McKnight “All Night Long”, Fergie “Party People” and Rick Ross “Here I Am”. Nelly has a new album out 5.0 on this
album \the single “Just a Dream” is Nelly’s highest charting single since his song Gritz in 2005. Nelly is no novelty; his rapping style is described by Peter Shapiro as "unforgettable hooks based on schoolyard songs, double-dutch chants, and nonsense rhymes" and has a "Missouri
twang". All music suggests Nelly's style is based largely on where he comes from - "Nelly's locale certainly informs his rapping style, which is as much country as urban, and his dialect as well, which is as much Southern drawl as Midwestern twang". I can tell when Nelly is singing; on
other artist songs he has that unique sound. I am so glad Nelly is still singing and rapping in his unique style of his. You can listen to Nelly on
Streetwise Radio.
