Nelly has shared a new song titled ‘High Horse’, taken off his forthcoming country project ‘Heartland’ which he has been teasing for some time now, the song is the second to arrive off the album, last year, he linked up with Florida Georgia Line for ‘Lil Bit‘.
A release date for the album is yet to be announced but from the look of things, it may arrive before the year runs out, Nelly hasn’t put out a lot of songs in a while so this is really something to look forward to.
About the genre-defying album, Nelly said:
“I hope it opens people’s eyes up as far as some of those minds that might’ve been closed to having the idea of Black folk being in country as much as possible, so to speak, and continuously to grow,” Nelly said. “But then also inviting more Black artists that are into country. Because I don’t know if they know, but we’re everywhere! You know what I’m saying?… So, I mean, yeah, man, you just want to invite more because you’ve got to understand – It’s been a long time.”
“Well yeah, it is a different project…The music, in a sense, is probably going to be a different feel other than probably what you would typically hear from a Nelly album. But the vibe is still going to be a Nelly album. Because if you know anything about how I like to create my music, it’s more or less about the energy.”
