Posted By on December 1, 2009

    Nelly recently talked about his upcoming self-titled album saying he is motived by the fans that doubt he can bring it this time around. Talking about his current work ethic, Nelly explained why he welcomes all the haters this time. "The thing is, I work best with two strikes, two outs," Nelly revealed in an interview. "I really think I do. As an artist, you want to wake up every day and feel like you're doing something people don't think you can do. Now I feel like I've been put in that position again, where it's more doubt than expectancy. The doubt is what fuels me, so to speak." [Nelly Welcomes Haters For His New Album – Watch Here]

     Nelly continued by explaining his current situation. "I've been real fortunate where I have great people around me. Everybody wants to freakin' work with me — not that everybody didn't [before], but it's different because I didn't work with a lot of people. Coming into this situation, it's beautiful…In the booth right now, it's kind of different. I got Sean Paul, Akon…as far as the rappers go, Plies. Me and [Young] Jeezy talking about some things now. I'm not finished, but I'm a good portion on the way." [Nelly Gives Details On His New Upcoming Album – Watch Here]
