Nelly seems to have pulled out all the stops for his upcoming fifth album. He work with Midas-touch hitmaker Dr. Luke on the infectious “Move That Body,” and he also explained recently that he’s happy to dealing with more “relatable” subject matter like l-o-v-e on tunes like “Just A Dream” (which is currently lodged at a respectable #3 on the Billboard Hot 100).

Of course, this collab with Breezy and Plies finds Nell resorting to the cliched topic of buying a hottie at the club a drink then taking her back to the crib. But really, the music thankfully trumps the tired lyrics.
Still, all that said, we could have done without Plies’ pointless (and kind of grating) rap.
