Nelly – Boise Music Festival 2016 Artist
Grammy® award-winning and multi-platinum selling artist, Nelly, is following up his PLATINUM Top 10 smash “The Fix” with “Die A Happy Man”. This is his first foray back into country music since his appearance on the now DIAMOND Florida Georgia Line single, “Cruise”. “Cruise” remains one of the highest selling country songs of all time.
“Die A Happy Man” is a cover of the wildly popular PLATINUM #1 Country song by Thomas Rhett.” The now Top 40 Pop track (and growing) stays true to the country original, but uniquely Nelly; a purely perfect cover. Releasing on Feb. 5, 2016, the single raced to the Top 10 on iTunes and sits at over 100,000 units to date.
On Aug. 14, 2015, Nelly released the hit “The Fix” featuring platinum R&B artist Jeremih with production from multi-platinum producers DJ Mustard and Mike Free. The Top 10 record included a taste of Marvin Gaye’s 1982 classic, “Sexual Healing” and quickly went platinum.
Nelly plans on touring internationally this year as well as filming the new season of the hit BET show “Real Husbands of Hollywood”. Last year, Nelly, also a co-owner of the NBA franchise Charlotte Bobcats, also wrapped up the second season of his reality show, “Nellyville”.
As “Die A Happy Man” continues to build steam, Nelly continues to record new music, which promises to keep him all over the airwaves throughout 2016.
