Nelly Gears Up for ‘5.0’ with Promo Photos

A well-groomed Nelly pops his collar in this photo to promote his upcoming album 5.0. The November 16 release, named partly after the St. Louis MC’s dream car the Mustang 5.0, is already off to a strong start.

The Jim Jonsin and Rico Love-helmed “Just a Dream” debuted at No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100, Nelly’s highest rank on the chart since “Grillz” in 2006. The rapper-turned-radio host recently shot a video for the single with director Sanji (Lauryn Hill, Mary J. Blige).
