Nelly on in Leisureland
Nelly is a multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning rap superstar, entrepreneur, philanthropist and actor who has continually raised the bar for the entertainment industry since stepping on the scene in 2000 with his chart-topping album Country Grammar.
Nelly kept the momentum going with the 2002 release of Nellyville. His follow-up album debuted at No.1 and he scored his first two Grammy Awards for Hot in Here (Best Male Rap Solo Performance) and Dilemma feat. Kelly Rowland (Best Rap Song Collaboration).
Nelly has since gone on to win multiple American Music Awards, a Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award, Soul Train Music Awards and MTV Video Music Awards.
In 2013, the St. Louis native released his seventh full-length album, M.O. [Republic Records] featuring guest appearances by Nicki Minaj, Pharrell, Future, T.I. and 2 Chainz. In 2015 Nelly got back in the studio and released the chart topper The Fix featuring Jeremih followed by the 2016 country cover Die a Happy Man.
Most recently, Nelly displayed a new style blending country, hip hop and pop in his 2017 single Sounds Good to Me.
