Nelly And Jeremih’s “The Fix” Video
The lead single from Nelly’s eighth LP has lyrics that would make a truck driver blush. “She say she ain’t about the creep life, but all she wanna do is take pipe,” the veteran rapper spits on one of less explicit verses on “The Fix.” That’s when Jeremih comes in to interpolate Marvin Gaye’s classic bedroom anthem “Sexual Healing” on the chorus. It’s definitely one of the year’s raunchiest track, which makes the tame video somewhat surprising.
Directed by Aristotle and filmed at the Sheats-Goldstein residence in Beverly Hills, the video stars the 40-year-old’s real-life girlfriend Miss Jackson. She approaches Nelly with a problem (after all, he’s The Fixer) and he spends most of the visual taking business meetings with her. “The Fix” is shaping up to be another hit for the Country Grammar legend. It peaked at number three in Australia and is slowing climbing the Billboard Hot 100. (It’s currently number 86).
