Four Nelly Hits That Still Get The Party Jumping To This Day

Nelly stands as one of hip-hop’s biggest stars after emerging onto the scene in the early 2000s. The St. Louis native quickly captivated audiences with his 2000 debut album, “Country Grammar,” which was certified diamond in 2016. The album gave birth to its renowned title track, which remained a fixture in clubs for years to follow. With such a remarkable debut, Nelly proved that this success was just the beginning, as he continued to produce hits that continued to get the parties across the globe jumping two decades into his career.

Nelly – Hot In Herre (2002)

Air Force Ones (2002)

This timeless bop remains a must in DJ sets, getting the crowd going, especially those who happen to be sporting a fresh pair of Force’s.
