20 years after landing on the scene with Country Grammar, Nelly is reminding us just how lit his catalogue still is. Proving that many of his songs are timeless, the St. Louis native — whose diamond-certified debut album is one of the highest selling hip-hop albums of all-time — has performed a medley of his career-spanning hits on his way to the 2020 Dancing with the Stars finals, at this year’s American Music Awards and during his epic VERZUZ battle with Ludacris. Party like it’s the 2000’s with the help of Nelly’s biggest hits.
