Nelly Talks New Album & Collaborations: Nelly Furtado, Trey Songz, T.I. & Wiz Khalifa
Nelly has a long and storied track record of teaming up with big artists on his tracks — here’s looking at you, Kelly Rowland, since we may or may not be listening to “Dilemma” at this very moment — but there have been few details on the shape of his upcoming LP, M.O., due out in June. And yet! When he hit the red carpet at the Grammys this weekend, he revealed a few of the boldface names set to appear on the album.
First up — another Nelly! In this case, Nelly Furtado. Nelly (the rapper) said that the Portuguese songbird will be appearing on his album, as well as additional collabs with Wiz Khalifa, Trey Songz and T.I. (so basically, hip-hop’s elite).
The album’s lead single, “Hey Porsche,” is currently zooming up the charts, with Nelly promising a video very soon. He says he’s playing a mechanic in the clip: “You get a chance to see something a little different.” Sounds good to us.
