Nelly Releases New Single 'Get Like Me' Ft. Nicki Minaj & Pharrell

Just in time for the Fourth of July, NELLY brings in summer with a bang. The Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum superstar, entrepreneur, actor, and philanthropist just released his brand new single "Get Like Me" featuring Nicki Minaj and Pharrell on iTunes and all digital retailers.

Produced by Pharrell, the track bobs and weaves through a bouncy beat as the MC's signature style sizzles. It's immediately irresistible, and everybody's going to want to get like NELLY as soon as this banger drops. Expect the music video to debut this July with a few surprises in store from St. Louie's finest. With director Colin Tilley [Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown] at the helm, this dynamic trio lights up the screen with uncontainable energy.

"Get Like Me" is the latest single from his long-awaited seventh full-length album, M.O., slated for fall release. It's also the follow-up to the chart-topping spring hit, "Hey Porsche", which sold over 100,000 singles during its release week, garnered 16.2 million YouTube/VEVO views, became his 22 nd charted Top 40 song, and tied him at 11 th for "most charted Top 40 hits ever". However, he's still grinding harder than ever before.

NELLY joined his friends, hit making country duo, Florida Georgia Line, for a rousing and rowdy performance of their platinum-selling smash "Cruise" (Remix) at the finale of NBC's The Voice. He's been tapped to perform at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards Sunday August 11 as well as upcoming performances on Jay Leno and NBC's Today Concert Series in the coming weeks. In addition, NELLY made his debut as an official cast member on BET's #1-rated sitcom The Real Husbands of Hollywood. Across the board, success is his M.O.

For his forthcoming album, he teamed up with production powerhouses such as Pharrell (Jay Z, Robin Thicke, Daft Punk), DJ Frank E (Kanye West, Enrique Iglesias), Detail (Lil Wayne), & Rico Love (Beyonce, Usher). Plus, he invited some of his closest friends and today's hottest artists to collaborate including: T.I., Future, 2 Chainz, Nelly Furtado, Trey Songz, and Florida Georgia Line.

2013 is shaping up to be NELLY's year.
