Nelly Not Trying to Repeat History with New Kelly Rowland Duet

Kelly Rowland and Nelly

Nelly and Kelly Rowland topped the charts in 2002 with their duet “Dilemma,” but Nelly is not looking to repeat history with their latest collaboration.

“Let’s be honest, we can’t do ‘Dilemma’ over again. That’s etched in time,” he told of their Grammy-winning hit, which was named one of Billboard’s Hot 100 Songs of the Decade. “It is what it is; that song was for that point in time.”

The song’s sequel “Gone” was helmed by Jim Jonsin and Rico Love and is set to appear on Nelly’s new album Nelly 5.0. It picks up where its predecessor left off. “It’s kinda like an extension of the story,” he explains, “and still playfully having fun with it like we did with the first one.”

But Nelly forewarns those who will undoubtedly compare the two tracks. “In no way, shape, or form are we trying to repeat a ‘Dilemma’—like you gotta be fuckin’ kidding me.”

In the meantime, Nelly can be heard on the urban remix to Kelly’s new single “Commander.”

    Can’t let ^ that end the comments. I wasn’t big on Commander before but now I like it. I like that she is very realistic about the new song.
