10 Songs That Feature Nelly to Get You Ready for Taste of Fort Collins
Good gracious, things will be heating up in Northern Colorado this summer when Nelly comes to town for Townsquare Media's Taste of Fort Collins. (Keep your clothes on at the family-friendly event, please.) Right now, weekend passes are just $20 through the station app — grab yours while they last, so you can drink a FoCo cold one in the company of Nelly.
Speaking of company, we all know the hits 'Country Grammar' and 'Hot in Herre,' but Nelly's done a handful of collaborations with other artists, maybe even more than Travis Barker has. Here's a few we hope to hear at Taste of Fort Collins, July 24 and 25, 2021.
1) Dilemma (Nelly featuring Kelly Rowland)
The 2002 song features Destiny's Child's Kelly Rowland, who infamously typed a text message in a Microsoft Excel document on her Nokia phone... because 2002.
2) Girlfriend (NSYNC featuring Nelly)
That same year, Nelly remixed boyband NSYNC's pop hit, 'Girlfriend.'
Shake Ya Tailfeather (P. Diddy featuring Nelly)
The soundtrack to your summer in 2003, and also to Bad Boys II, we all know the P.Diddy-Nelly collab, 'Shake Ya Tailfeather.'
Over and Over (Nelly featuring Tim McGraw)
In 2004, Nelly linked up with country superstar Tim McGraw for 'Over and Over.' In the video, you'll see (photo) cameos of their respective partners, singers Ciara and Faith Hill.
Grillz (Nelly featuring Paul Wall and Jermaine Dupri)
Did you ever at some point put an aluminum foil gum wrapper over your teeth when this song came out or were you a normal teenager in 2005?
Get It Poppin' (Fat Joe featuring Nelly)
While we're on the topic of the 2000s high school experience, you'll probably remember this one from your school dances.
Party People (Nelly featuring Fergie)
In 2008, Nelly did a song with The Duchess Fergie Ferg herself on 'Party People.'
Cruise (Florida Georgia Line featuring Nelly)
Nelly has a handful of country collaborations, actually. In 2012, Florida Georgia Line's hit 'Cruise' got a Nelly overhaul.
Lil Bit (Nelly featuring Florida Georgia Line)
In 2020, FGL and Nelly teamed up again, but this time the country duo was featured on Nelly's track, 'Lil Bit.'
Good Times Roll (Jimmie Allen featuring Nelly)
That same year, country artist Jimmie Allen borrowed Nelly for his track 'Good Times Roll.'
