Why mess with a good thing? That's Nelly's M.O. on his sophomore disc, Nellyville, which makes the most of the same catchy, nursery-rhyme style flow that propelled his debut album, Country Grammar, to multi-platinum status. The St. Louis rapper also sticks to the same subject matter with a new batch of tunes about partying, dodging haters, and kickin' it with the ladies. Adding to its appeal, Nellyville is peopled with an A-list of guest stars, including Justin Timberlake on the wah-wah guitar-accented "Work It" (perhaps returning the favor for Nelly's appearance on 'N Sync's "Girlfriend" remix, which earned the boy band more urban radio airplay), Kelly Rowland of Destiny's Child on the Bone Thugs-N-Harmony-reminiscent ballad "Dilemma," and hit makers the Neptunes, who contribute their signature, highly electronic production work to the go-go-inspired single "Hot in Herre." Still, in an effort to defend his street cred, Nelly comes through hard on "Roc the Mic (Remix)," which features Rockfella Beanie Sigel and takes a humorous jab at old-school rapper KRS-One. But even when he's trying to play the bad boy, Nelly is still one of rap's music most jovial MCs. So if you like your hip-hop danceable and lighthearted, you'll enjoy the ride to Nellyville.
