Three-time Grammy Award-winning superstar Nelly will make musical history on 14 September when he simultaneously releases two new albums - Sweat and Suit. While he joins Bruce Springstein and Guns'n'Roses, who have also released two albums on the same day, Nelly becomes the first rapper to join their exclusive ranks.

Before that, he released a brand new double A-sided single My Place/ Flap Your Wings on 30 August 2004.
My Place, featuring Jaheim on vocals is a reworking of the Teddy Pendergrass classic, Come On And Go With Me and is taken from the Suit album while the Neptunes produced Flap Your Wings is lifted from Sweat.

Conceptually and creatively, Sweat and Suit showcase the multi-platinum St. Louis native's diverse musical styles. "I had so much material that at first I thought about releasing a double CD, but then I thought it would be better to release two albums separately to show fans the best of both sides of Nellyville," says Nelly.

In describing how the two albums are different, he characterizes Sweat as having more "up-tempo club bangers that are more street-oriented songs like Hot In Herre, Air Force Ones or #1,” while Suit is more "'grown and sexy', along the lines of Dilemma or Ride Wit Me." Both albums showcase Nelly's trademark melodic lyrical style that gives him a broad-based appeal. "When I first came out I was representing my city hard, now I'm trying to explain so much more. I think both albums show my growth creatively and personally," he adds.

Nelly first came to national attention when he released his 9x platinum-selling 2000 debut Country Grammar. In 2001, as a member of the St. Lunatics (which includes fellow group member Murphy Lee), Universal Records released the group's platinum-certified debut Free City. The next year, he released his 6x platinum-certified sophomore album, Nellyville followed by the platinum-certified re-mix album, Da Derrty Versions in 2003. Cumulatively, Nelly has sold close to 30 million singles/albums worldwide establishing him as one today's top-selling artists. Sweat and Suit will be his third and fourth studio albums respectively and feature guest appearances by superstars Christina Aguilera, Big Boi, Pharell Williams and Snoop Dogg.

In addition to his love of music, Nelly is committed to giving back to St. Louis and the broader community of his home town. Several years ago, he started 4sho4kids, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children born with developmental disabilities and children born addicted to drugs.

He's also growing into a successful entrepreneur. He has found success with his multi-million dollar clothing company, Vokal and recently launched a women's line called Applebottoms. Nelly not only co-owns the clothing companies, he designs and is active in promoting and marketing the brands.
