Over the course of his short career Nelly has produced 3 Multi-Platinum albums that have not only catapulted him into world-wide fame, but established St.Louis as a fertile ground for Rap and Hip-Hop. With the simultaneous releases of his fourth and fifth albums Nelly continues a career that evolves and blurs the lines of Party Rap, Pop-Rap, Brag Rap and Country Rap. With two collections of songs that have everything to offer all people. From the lead single “My Place” to the autobiographical “Die For You” to the club sensation “Flap Your Wings.” Nelly reaches out to fans on all levels. Everyone will have the opportunity to SWEAT it out and SUIT it up.

"Sweat... is more fun, but that's the point.  Blender
"Nelly mixes hip-hop energy and pop ebullience like it's no sweat at all.  Rolling Stone
"These are easily Nelly's best albums so far.  The New York Times

Muze PNote After a pair of multi-platinum records made Nelly the instant icon of St. Louis rap, the man who found the perfect balance of pop and hip-hop still had a surplus of music to let out. So with his 2004 efforts, Nelly decided to split up his new compositions into two albums--the down-and-dirty, raw club jams and the smooth, refined songs, respectively SWEAT and SUIT.
Muze PNote SWEAT opens with "Heart of a Champion," a powerful, sports-referencing piece of adrenaline-pumping hip-hop that samples, of all things, John Tesh's "Roundball," the ubiquitous theme music for NBC Sports. From the ballfield, Nelly moves the party to the club for most of the remaining tracks, with pure dance cuts like "Na-Nana-Na" and the crunk-flavored "Flap Your Wings." He breaks stride for a more sinister 1970s-funk vibe on "Tilt Ya Head Back," featuring a soul-stirring vocal turn from Christina Aguilera. "Playa" goes for a smooth groove, with Mobb Deep and Missy Elliott dropping by to cast a mood both dark and sweet. For SWEAT, Nelly clearly intended to create a loose, unguarded party atmosphere, and with help from his friends and the best producers in the game, he succeeds.
