It finally is beginning to look like Rap superstar, Nelly is finally starting to get the momentum he needed to jump start promotion of his long delayed seventh studio album. This rejuvenated interest in his project came with the recent release of his brand new Pop radio friendly single, “Hey Porche.” The catchy new track is now the intended first single from his forthcoming seventh studio album, M.O. . Ever since his debut in the music business in 2000, Nelly has been able to find a unique balance, between a witty flow of clever Midwest raw Hip Hop, and melodic songs with that have an R&B flavor. This blend of sounds found on his albums has allowed him to work with everyone from Beanie Sigel, to Tim McGraw, Jahiem, *N Sync/Justin Timberlake, Kelly Rowland, Freeway, Mase, Christina Aguilera Diddy and many others. As Hip Hop’s presence was at an all time high in the early 2000s, Nelly’s appreciation for all sounds in Pop music allowed him to take Hip Hop to a higher level  of Pop culture, as he used Hip Hop production, and was brave enough to chant different raps melodically in a singing voice. That trademark style gave Nelly some of his biggest hits, and allowed the Hip Hop genre to grow, and break down barriers. That tradition of taking the genre to new places continues with this new single!

As the title of the song may suggest, “Hey Porche” is a song full of fun lyrical analogies that connect the description for a sexy woman and an attractive sports car. The song’s instrumentation is then laced with a up beat rhythmic track that really boost his melodic background vocals. Nelly was not the first rapper combine rapping ability with a singing melody, but it has sure helped him get some of his biggest hits. Some of these include, 2001’s “Ride Wit Me”, 2002’s “Dilemma”, 2004’s “My Place and “Over And Over”,  2005’s “N Dey Say”, And 2010’s “Just A Drean.”

Nelly’s “Hey Porche” is without a doubt another track in his discography that leans over to the Pop side of things, but for those of you who are still looking for Nelly’s other trademark of fun Hip Hop for the clubs, chances are you will not be disappointed. The album, M.O. comes after Nelly released a promotional mixtape titled O.E.M.O. in December 2011. (which stands for On Everything MO), That mixtape featured guest appearances from T.I., 2 Chainz, Bei Maejor, St. Lunatics and more. Later in the summer of 2012, Nelly revealed via Twitter that his first intended single for M.O. would be his collaboration with Chris Brown. However for one reason or another, that song’s Hip Hop sound fell below the radar in a Pop music climate of Electopop/EDM. With that said, Nelly went back to the drawing board and released another mixtape in November 2012 called, Scorpio Season. Now he is back again with new material ready to try and give M.O. another boost. Since he has been working on this project for the past two years, he should have some cool surprises in store for all of us.
