Nelly's 'Over & Over' Jumps To #1! printer friendly version Send this story to a friend!

Nelly continues to break records with his new hit song "Over And Over" featuring country chart-topper Tim McGraw

 Last week, "Over And Over" jumped from #7 to #1 on Billboard's Mainstream Top 40 Chart, and according to the Billboard Monitor, the trade magazine that monitors radio airplay, the leap is "the largest position jump to No. 1 and also ties with Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey for quickest ascent to No. 1." 

This is remarkable because the song climbs to the top of the charts within four weeks of its radio release date.

 "Over And Over" is Nelly's fourth No. 1 record which gives him the most by
a male artist in the Top 40 format and ties him for most No. 1's overall with
Mariah Carey, Avril Lavigne, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera and Alanis Morissette.

After releasing two new albums Sweat and Suit in September, Nelly becamethe first solo artist ever to have two new albums debut in the No. 1 and No. 2 positions simultaneously on the nation's pop albums chart. "Over And Over" is
the second single from the double platinum-certified Suit album, following-up the smash hit, "My Place." 

Plans are underway for Nelly and McGraw to film the video for the smash hit song. Universal Records is also promoting the more street-oriented cut, "Na-NaNa-Na" featuring Jazze Pha from the platinum-plus Sweat CD. Both albums continue to dominate the charts and have cumulatively sold five million units worldwide.

Commenting on the song and why he chose to work with McGraw, Nelly says, "I used to run into him at award shows and I played with him at different celebrity basketball games -- and the guy can hoop!  We just clicked and we kept saying that we should do something together ... and the opportunity arose.  I appreciate all kinds of music besides hip-hop."

Fans can catch Nelly performing songs from both of his CDs in a special performance on Jimmy Kimmel on November 12th.
