The Queens Presents: NELLY. All Work, No Play Canadian Tour
Diana Krall Plaza
Nelly is a multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning rap superstar, entrepreneur, philanthropist and actor, who 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.
The multitalented Grammy-winning music icon, Nelly, has worked relentlessly on multiple television, film and music projects. Nelly 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, an update of the Marvin Gaye classic, “Sexual Healing”.
Nelly has pushed the boundaries of his artistry. After releasing “The Fix” with Jeremih, Nelly once again took the driver’s seat in a country song covering Thomas Rhett’s “Die A Happy Man”, which is actually his third time releasing a country single, following his Florida Georgia Line and Tim McGraw collaborations. The song drew rave reviews from MTV, Billboard and CMT respectively. The song was released on iTunes on Feb. 5th, and was leading Billboard’s airplay/sales/streaming-based Hot Country Songs chart following its release. Still hard at work on his upcoming new album, Nelly has been on the road touring nationally and internationally. nelly.net.
