Nelly Addresses Shifting His Sound On New Single "Hey Porsche"

Nelly discusses his new sound on his latest single "Hey Porsche."

Even though the song marks his first appearance on Billboard's Pop chart in over two years, it appears Nelly is raising eyebrows among some Rap fans with his latest hit.

In a recent interview with Power 107.5's Misty Jordan, Nelly discussed his stylistic shift on his most recent single "Hey Porsche." The St. Louis, Missouri rapper said that while he does understand some listeners' criticism of the single's Pop leanings, he feels that it was important to show his musical versatility on the record after 14 years in the industry. 

"Does 'Ride Wit Me' sound like 'E.I.?' Does 'E.I.' sound like 'Country Grammar'? Does 'Country Grammar' sound like 'Hot In Herre'?" he began. "I don't know [if I'm going in a different direction] 'cuz I went in that direction for every song that I had was different. That was my point. I don't know, it sounds like 'Ride Wit Me' meets 2013. Don't get it twisted, shawty, I was just teasing. I kinda get what you mean [Laughs]. It's one of those things where I think it's been 14 years, and versatility has been a key of lasting in the business."

Last year, Nelly made headlines when police discovered 36 bags of heroin, 10 pounds of marijuana and a loaded pistol on his tour bus
