Personalities | Nelly | Twenty-First Century | Rock

(Rapper, b. 1974)

Nelly’s first album Country Grammar was released in 2000 and went platinum nine times over. Although housing four hit singles, he is best remembered today for his sublime, smoothly produced and utterly sexy ‘Hot In Herre’ single (2002), a track that began a run of 17 weeks at the top of the US Billboard Hot 100 chart (along with follow-up ‘Dilemma’). This remains an unbeaten record, which Nelly (real name Cornell Hayes) shares with Elton John.
