2 min read

It’s been a very long time since Nelly delivered a track worth mentioning or proclaiming as a future comeback hit but the rap princes latest endevour at scoring big in the charts has come around again in the form of his latest treat, Just A Dream.

NellyJustADreamThe 3 time Grammy Award winning RnB superstar is preparing for the release of his 6th studio album titled 5.0 and in the built up to its release and to tease us a little we are given a hint of what’s to come with the amazing new single that is every bit as brilliant as Nelly’s early material that made the musician one of the most influential and consistent of crossover rap celebrities.

Already moving over a million download units, Just A Dream is an acoustic friendly and sentimental number that oozes vulnerability. Rather than an upbeat hip hop number the singer has chosen this delicate smoothie to introduce the record which sees it release on November 8th and Just a Dream is without doubt one of the best Nelly tracks to have been produced by the star.

The synth background to the track fills in the number creating an atmospheric beauty of a single for Nelly that is well worthy of reintroducing the star back to his former glory days as one of the top RnB stars of the last 20 years.
