Country duo Florida Georgia Line has seen much success with their number one single, “Cruise,” so they decided to take the song one step further with a remix! And who did the snatch up to do the remix with them??? Rapper, Nelly!
Brian Kelley told Country Weekly:
“When we caught wind that Nelly was a fan of ‘Cruise,’ we were floored. We’ve been fans of him for years and thought it would be cool to team up on a remix.”
The remix was leaked on YouTube last week, but has since been taken down.
Tyler Hubbard added:
“Nelly brought a fresh, unique sound to ‘Cruise’ and we’re super excited for our fans to hear.”
Nelly collaborated with Tim McGraw in the past on “Over and Over.” He also was brought out on stage by Taylor Swift this week at her St. Louis tour stop (the rapper’s hometown) where she helped him out on his latest single, “Hey Porsche.”
The FGL/Nelly remix of “Cruise” will be available on April 2.
The duo is part of major tours this year with opening slots for Luke Bryan and Taylor Swift.
