New Music: Nelly – ‘Thanks to My Ex’

Nelly’s personal life has taken the spotlight once again. The St. Louis rapper addresses the recent reports that he is dating Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s ex-fiancée Shantel Jackson on a new R&B song called “Thanks to My Ex.”

The boxing champ felt betrayed that Jackson would date Nelly, who he considers one of his friends. Nelly was surprised to learn that he and Floyd were friends, and has recorded a response.

“It’s his bad you found a new lover / It’s her fault I’m looking for another / It ain’t our problem, girl / One man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” he sings.

Out of anger, Floyd took to Instagram to share Jackson’s ultrasound results and revealed that she had an abortion. He later deleted the posts.

Hear Nelly go on the record about his headline-making romance.
