Nelly Talks About New Album

Multi-platinum selling rapper Nelly is working on his next LP.

According to reports, the St. Louis rapper told the Today Show he’s planning to release the follow up to his 2010 album, 5.0, later this year.

“I’ll hopefully have a new album coming out at the end of this year. I’m going back in,” Nelly said. “The last album, 5.0, was phenomenal- ‘Just a Dream,” 4 million and things.”

While sales of his 5.0 album were low by Nelly standards, the album did feature the single “Just a Dream,” which sold 4 times platinum, and peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Nelly’s upcoming album is currently untitled.

Nelly is also set to appear in a video for Keri Hilson’s next single “Lose Control.”
