I always love it when an artist does a crossover. Nelly, world-famous rapper, has released an (almost full-on) Country song. Yes, it may be a cover, but it’s still a different sound for the Texas native, and nothing you’d expect. This isn’t Nelly’s first experience with Country music, though. He was featured in Florida Georgia Line’s 2013 hit, Cruise, and even previous to that, collaborated with Tim McGraw.

I feel as if this comes natural to him. If you’ve never heard Nelly before, you’d assume this his norm. While it doesn’t sound EXACTLY like the Thomas Rhett song, it’s still well-produced, as he puts his won spin on it. Excited to see what the upcoming album will sound like!
