Who would have thought it? Multi-Platinum, Grammy award-winning music icon Nelly has announced a date for Dublin’s Vicar St on June 12th!
Nelly had a big year in 2015, working on multiple television, film and music projects. Nelly just celebrated the second season of his wildly successful BET docu-series, Nellyville and is currently co-starring in the #1-rated BET sitcom The Real Husbands of Hollywood for the show’s fourth season.
After collaborating with Florida Georgia Line on the 6X Platinum single Cruise, Nelly got back in the studio to release his newest chart topper, The Fix Featuring Jeremih, which updates the Marvin Gaye classic, Sexual Healing, for a modern day audience.
The Fix is produced by hit maker, DJ Mustard alongside Mike Free. “The Fix” serves as the first single from Nelly’s currently unnamed upcoming album. Touring across the US, Australia, Middle East, Europe and in his hometown of St. Louis with Taylor Swift, have been just a few highlights of his past year.
Nelly has continually raised the bar for the entertainment industry since stepping on the scene in 2000 with his chart topping album, Country Grammar. Country Grammar spent seven weeks at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and spawned the massive hits Ride Wit Me, Country Grammar, and E.I. The album landed Nelly four Grammy Award nominations and sold over nine million copies worldwide.
Nelly kept the momentum going with the 2002 release of Nellyville. The album debuted at #1 on top of scoring Nelly his first two Grammy Awards for Hot in Here – Best Male Rap Solo Performance – and Dilemma [feat. Kelly Rowland] – Best Rap Song Collaboration. He has since gone on to win multiple American Music Awards, a Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award, Soul Train Music Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, and was crowned “Top Pop, Rap, and R&B/Hip-Hop Artist Of The Year” by Billboard. In 2013, the St. Louis native released his seventh full-length album, M.O. [Republic Records] featuring guest appearances by Nicki Minaj, Pharrell, Future, T.I. and 2 Chainz as well as production powerhouses Rico Love (Beyonce, Usher) and Detail (Lil Wayne, T-Pain).
