This weekend while driving home from teaching dance classes, I was jamming out to this song on the radio that had a catchy, catchy hook. The track was titled Hey Porsche and literally sounded like a track that didn’t quite make the cut for Flo Rida’s latest album. Color me surprised when I found out who the actual artist behind this earworm was. No, it wasn’t some new hot act out of LA. It was one of my favorite rappers from the late 90’s, early millennium, Nelly.
That’s right. Nelly has unleashed a new track. But, don’t expect to to spitting out and country grammar to this one. Instead, you’ll be wanting to to roll the windows down on your next long road trip and take you on a stroll down memory lane to pop tracks that made us sing along in the early 2000’s. But still, I’m like, WTF?!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m totally digging the track. But from Nelly? Come on! What happened to the Nelly that brought us Ride Wit Me, one of my favorite jams of all time. He completely flipped his sound around. Is he trying to the next/new Flo Rida? I can’t tell what the M.O. behind this single is. Funny, considering that’s the name of his forthcoming album. The track isn’t making much of a wave over here in North America but peaked at #7 in New Zealand. Nelly Furtado and Wiz Khalifa among others have been rumored to be featured on the album.
