According to hit-maker Jermaine Dupri, Nelly is hard at work on his new album and has a few surprises in store. JD tells MTV News:
“Nelly’s got a crazy collaboration he’s trying to put together, which is him, Janet and Mariah Carey all on one song,” JD said. “That’s what he wants. If he could convince them to do it, it would be crazy. He wants Janet to rap a 16-bar verse, he wants Mariah to sing the hook and he’s gonna do two verses. He has it all planned out. You ask him about it! This is what he wants; he’s 100-percent deadlocked into it. My two records [that J.D. has produced for Nelly so far], he’s gonna have some people on them – I won’t tell it yet. I don’t want to jinx the record”.
I’ve been hearing about a possible Mariah / Janet collaboration for some time now, but now Nelly has been thrown into the mix. For some reason, the concept seems more appealing than just the two of them. Janet rapping, though…?
