Nelly Taps T.I., Nelly Furtado, Trey Songz + More for ‘M.O.’ Album
On the 2013 Grammy Awards carpet Sunday evening (Feb. 10), Nelly told the Hollywood Reporter that he recruited some major superstars for his upcoming album, ‘M.O.’
The St. Louis native has brought on Nelly Furtado, Trey Songz, Wiz Khalifa and his good friend T.I. to contribute to his sixth LP. ‘M.O.’ is set to drop in June through his Derrty Entertainment imprint, which is under the Universal Records umbrella.
“The new album is full of great collaborations,” the rapper tells THR. “I have the first ever Nelly and Nelly collaboration, myself and Nelly Furtado. It’s a great album.”
Most recently, the ‘Scorpio Season’ creator released the lead single for the album, entitled ‘Hey Porsche.’ The track debuted at No. 36 on Billboard’s pop charts and Nelly says the song’s immediate success surprised him so much that he’s just now preparing to release the video.
“It’s kind of shooting up a little faster than we expected,” he admits. “We didn’t have the video ready. We just got the video ready and are getting ready to drop it.”
