Nelly Teams Up With Ford For Album Artwork


Nelly is teaming up with America’s powerhouse car company for the artwork for his upcoming album.

As previously reported Nelly was in talks with police after his home was burglarized and his property was stolen.

Now moving on from the incident, he’s focusing on his new album which will be released in the spring.

The artwork for the new album will feature Nelly alongside a customized 2011 Ford Mustang GT.

The Mustang was tricked out compliments of DUB magazine and features a gloss black exterior paint job, flat black racing stripes and 22-inch Pirelli tires in the front and 24-inch tires in the rear.

Speaking on his new affiliation with the muscle car, Nelly says he grew up talking about Mustangs and can appreciate the upgraded version he sees before him today.

“I don’t care where you grew up, everyone knows the Mustang. At some point, you’ve had a conversation about a Mustang – and it was probably one about you wanting to get behind the wheel of one. I’ve always loved the Mustang; the vehicle has power to the point where you can’t help but want to hit the pedal. And the newest one? More power, hotter style.”

Nelly’s new album is reportedly self titled and features production from Polow Da Don and Play-N-Skillz.
