Nelly made history with the party anthem ‘Hot In Herre’. After its release, the song reigned number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for seven consecutive weeks. It starts with Pharrell’s signature 4-count intro as the solid prelude for the Nelly‘s memorable first line: “I was like/ Good gracious, ass is bodacious.” Laced with a sample of Chuck Brown’s classic “Bustin Loose,” the pair tapped into the formula to make an everlasting turn-up hit that’s celebrated across generations, check out the hilarious video above.

British rockers Muse and Pharrell served up musical highlights at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Saturday night amid windy weather and cooler temperatures. Before Muse took the stage, Pharrell brought uptempo tracks to the fest, kicking his set off with “Lose Yourself To Dance,” his collaboration with French electronic music duo Daft Punk.
The singer revisited some of his older hits with his group N*E*R*D including “Lapdance” and “She Likes To Move,” and songs from his new album ‘G I R L,’ with ‘Brand New’ including “Marilyn Monroe.” The 41-year-old singer got the crowd dancing with his 2013 collaborations, including “Blurred Lines” with Robin Thicke and “Get Lucky,” with Daft Punk. Pharrell performed both solo Saturday.
Pharrell brought out some star power for some other collaborations, welcoming rapper Nelly on his 2002 hit “Hot In Herre,” Busta Rhymes on “Pass The Courvoisier Part 2,” Snoop Dogg for “Drop It Like Its Hot,” Gwen Stefani for her hit “Hollaback Girl,” and Diplo, part of the electronic music collaborative Major Lazer, for “Aerosol Can.”
The dust storm caused problems for Pharrell, whose voice started cracking by the end of the set. “I want you to be patient with me, the dust is messing with my voice right now,” he said before leading the crowd into a sing-a-long of his Oscar-nominated song “Happy.” Pharrell brought the good vibes on stage during Day 2 of Coachella 2014 on Saturday night. Backed by a team of beautiful dancers and backup singers, Pharrell and his now staple Buffalo hat turned the Indio, California crowd into one live party at the Outdoor Theatre. Check out the Whole Performance Below.

Nelly’s ‘M.O.’ Tracklist Revealed, Gets Mike Posner’s ‘IDGAF’
Nelly just revealed his third out of four Pharrell tracks from his new album which is Mike Posner’s ‘IDGAF’. Mike Posner’s long anticipated second studio album ‘Pages’ is still on the way, and as we thought the new tune with Pharrell that leaked in the beginning of the year ‘IDGAF‘ was for his release, is actually for Nelly’s new album, according to the Tracklist of Nelly’s seventh studio album M.O., you can check out Mike Posner’s version below.

By James Montgomery. Nelly teams up with Miley for ‘4×4,’ and ode to rebelliousness, and ‘riding with the bad boys.’ When Miley Cyrus revealed the tracklist for Bangerz earlier this week, we learned that she’d been getting busy with several famous friends, including Britney Spears, Big Sean and Nelly. In recent months, Nelly’s been riding high on the success of another collaboration: his cameo on Florida Georgia Line’s crossover smash “Cruise.” And, from the sound of things, his contribution to Bangerz — a track called “4×4” — doesn’t stray all that far from the country roots of “Cruise.”
“It’s kind of a country, hip-hop, pop feel, if you can believe that,” Nelly told MTV News. “It’s about having fun; kind of how a 4×4 truck symbolizes rebelliousness … you know, mashing out, wanting to ride with the bad boys. It’s a dope track.” Nelly said that Miley does “a little rapping and a little singing” on the Pharrell-produced track, and he was quick to compliment her skills on the mic. She may have grown up with a County-crooning father, but it seems her hip-hop knowledge runs deeper than most realize. “She grew up with hip hop. Hip hop is a way of life, she’s not a rapper but she loves hip hop. It’s about how she expresses herself,” he explained. “I know a lot of kids her age that are just like her; they grew up loving this music. People act like they want her to be 30 years old; she’s not even 21, she has no kids, she’s been working with Disney for her whole life, she wants to have some fun.”
And though Nelly’s aware that Cyrus has been criticized for her antics — “I’ve heard all about it, how could you not?” he laughed — he’s got no problem with the way Miley‘s living her life or handling her career, incidentally one of the topics at the center of her October 2 documentary “Miley: The Movement.” In fact, he thinks it’s rather brilliant, actually. “People have to remember she’s young, and if she is going to have fun at any level, it would be now. Everybody forgets the dumb sh– they did when they were her age, so they need to chill,” he said. “Somebody’s been telling Miley what to do until she got to a certain age, so now she’s like ‘The hell with everybody.’ And half the time I think she’s doing it just to piss people off, and it’s working! They’re playing into her hands.”
