Nelly Leaves Universal, Prepares To Release A Country LP

Nelly is switching up gears on his fans. The 40-year old is crossing over to country music for his eighth album, according to his manager,  J. Erving of Atom Factory.

“He’s a free agent on the label side now, and is working on a country-based “Heartland” EP, which should be really interesting,” said J. Erving told Billboard. “He may be one of the first hip-hop artists to jump into that space in an authentic way with Florida Georgia Line and Tim McGraw, so we think he has an opportunity to grow that base even more.”
