Nelly’s ‘Just a Dream’ Makes Debut on Charts


Since Nelly released his last album, Brass Knuckles, two years ago, fans jump at the opportunity to hear new music from the St. Louis native, which is evident by his impressive entry on this week’s Billboard charts.

The Grammy-winning rapper’s Jim Jonsin and Rico Love-produced track “Just a Dream” scored a No. 8 position on the Digital Songs chart. In addition, the single debuted at No. 12 on the Hot 100, with 135,000 copies sold. Nelly’s achievement marks his highest Hot 100 rank since “Grillz” topped the chart in January 2006.

“Just a Dream” will appear on Nelly’s forthcoming album 5.0, set for release on November 16. The Midwest rhymer previously debuted the effort’s more upbeat offering “Tippin’ in da Club,” produced by JukeBox.

With a career full of respected hits, the rapper will celebrate a special accomplishment this year. 2010 marks the 10th anniversary of his debut album Country Grammar.

    I’m hoping his new album, 5.0., will feature less features, but it seems highly doubt it since his last album had like 50 of them. I love this song, it reminds me of his album Suit which was an amazing C.D. Good luck to him with 5.0.

    @ yeahyeah YES YES YES!! PREACH!
    his last album had too many features! if the album is going to have 14 songs (like his last one) 5-7 features are more than enough! i want to listen to him not to other people!
