NELLY

Song: "Cruise (Remix)" ft. Florida Georgia Line
"I think we need to turn it up though, whatchyou think?" quips Nelly as he makes his first appearance in the "Cruise (Remix)" video – and boy does the "Country Grammar" emcee do just that in the clip, which features bikini-clad extras and car chases worthy of the Fast & Furious franchise. "I've been a huge fan of Nelly since middle school," said FGL member Tyler Hubbard, while Nelly added, "It's always good as a musician to dig deep sometimes, and sometimes to have a little fun."
