Nelly Plans New Album for This Year


Nelly is already on to the next. The St. Louis rapper revealed that he is working on a follow-up to last year’s 5.0 and is eyeing a release for later this year.

During a visit to the “Today” show to promote his fitness DVD series Celebrity Sweat, Nelly broke the news. “I’ll hopefully have a new album coming out at the end of this year. I’m going back in,” he told hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. “The last album 5.0 was phenomenal—‘Just a Dream,’ 4 million and things.”

He hinted at a potential out-of-the-box pairing like his hip-hop-meets-country record “Over” with Tim McGraw. “Hopefully, I have something real big planned. I don’t want to give it away,” he added.

One collaboration he will talk about is Keri Hilson’s “Lose Control.” The two recently shot a video for the song, which is the next single from Keri’s sophomore album No Boys Allowed.

  10. Prince Charming

    I hope he doesn’t work with Dr. Luke again, ‘Move That Body’ was a disaster!


  11. Heminem

    Nelly needs two big songs to have a successful album. Just a dream was the only hit on the last album. not sure why gone didnt take off.


  12. Lisa

    I can’t wait. ’5.0′ was by far his best album to date. It was a nice blend of hip hop, R&B and pop. I’ll buy anything from my fellow St. Louisan and he is too sexy!


    Hip-Hop Reply:

    @Lisa, 5.0 was his best album ? U crazy or what ? Obviously you haven’t heard Country Grammar and Nellyville. 5.0 was just OK. Problem is i know he can spit good rhymes, but he don’t wanna make tracks like he did on C.Grammar anymore. He’s too pop nowadays. But imma cop it…


  13. Akon's Da Man

    Can’t wait for this album. And people who say he’s a flop or it’s gonna be a flop, please get stuffed, you hater


  14. Kellie,R

    Move That Boady was Nelly’s worst song ever! I just hope he learns from his mistakes with this new album.

    haha sorry nelly doesnt do the wack ass rap style u haters are prolly into with no lyrics xept the same ones thats in every other song,, nelly is an innovator he tries all different styles and flows and is actually intelligent yall are straight retarted and yeh 5.0 was no where near wat Cgrammer or nellyville was and in my opinion he shoud go back to that style but yall are stupid thats my point
