Second collaboration from forthcoming country-influenced EP ‘The Heartland’
Diamond-selling, multi-Platinum, Grammy Award-winning hip-hop superstar (and fan-favorite on this season of “Dancing with the Stars”), Nelly reunites with country music heavyweights Florida Georgia Line for his new single “Lil Bit,” out now via RECORDS/Columbia. Listen HERE. Combining Nelly’s signature St. Louis sound with Florida Georgia Line’s Nashville twang, “Lil Bit” supersedes the RIAA-certified Diamond collaboration “Cruise.”
“Lil Bit” sets the stage for Nelly’s upcoming country-influenced EP, “The Heartland.” The disc “showcases his ability to defy genres and blend his classic sound with the true heartbeat of country music.”
“Music brings all types of people together and this track, ‘Lil Bit,’ is a dope track that merges my hip-hop style with my boys FGL country style once again, and I hope it will draw both hip-hop fans and country fans to it!” Nelly said.
He has had huge success in both hip-hop and country, including country collaborations with Tim McGraw, Florida Georgia Line, Jimmie Allen and most recently Kane Brown, as well as his own remake of Thomas Rhett’s “Die A Happy Man.”
From St. Louis to Nashville and everywhere in between, Nelly welcomes you to “The Heartland.”
