Nelly doesn’t require much to make a music video. For “Hot in Herre,” all he had was a crowded club. For “Dilemma,” he only needed a little help from his friends — that, and a good view from his porch. As for the Ethan Lader-directed video for “Hey Porsche,” the St. Louis rapper plays a mechanic and sticks to summer-cruise essentials: a convertible, a desert road, and of course, great company.
“Hey Porsche” is the first single off his seventh album, due out in June 2013. As Nelly spilled at this year’s Grammys, M.O. will feature the first-ever Nelly and Nelly collaboration (yes, as in Furtado), in addition to guest spots from Trey Songz, T.I., and Akon. Confirmed producers include Pharrell and Rico Love.
