Then & Now


From St. Louis novelty to Billboard charts #1, Nelly has produced a highly successful array of albums since 2000. Here's a tribute to his ambitious career.


2010- 5.0

Nelly's sixth studio album, released November 12, 2010. The new album includes singles "Just A Dream" and "Move That Body".

2004-Sweat and Suit

Nelly's third and fourth albums, Sweat and Suit, respectively, were released the same year. Why two albums in one year, you ask? Sweat is where Nelly laid down his hip-hop lines, while Suit took a more laid-back, R&B approach. Ultimately, Suit grew far more in popularity, breaking through 3,000,000 sales in the U.S. (3x Platinum) and reaching Billboard #1 album for the third time, although the Platinum status of Sweat was not exactly what you would call a flop... The two albums were combined in a compilation called Sweatsuit.

2000- Country Grammar

 In Summer 2000, Nelly debuted as a solo artist with Country Grammar. The album went at least Platinum in many, if not most, if the major markets (9x Platinum in the U.S. alone). It features that self-titled track that made Nelly a household name.
