Nelly’s ‘M.O.’ Will Arrive in September
Nelly may be known as a ‘Real Husband of Hollywood’ on BET now, but the rapper hasn’t given up music. His seventh album, ‘M.O.,’ will be released Sept. 30.
In an interview with Hip Hop Wired, the rapper talked about his new single, ‘Get Like Me’ featuring Pharrell and Nicki Minaj. “We made that album probably about a year ago. It was one of the first records that I started for the album, and we kinda came back to it after we were tightening up the album.”
Of Pharrell’s involvement, Nelly says, “Pharrell did about four, five records on this album. They dope. They dope. All of them.”
The St. Louis rapper previously released the album’s first single, ‘Hey Porsche.’ The track’s accompanying video was directed by Ethan Lader, who’s previously worked with the likes of Bruno Mars and CeeLo Green. Shot in the desert outside of L.A., Nelly plays a mechanic who meets the shop owner — she’s an affluent woman — and wins her over.
