Florida Georgia Line Remix ‘Cruise’ With Rapper Nelly
Country duo Florida Georgia Line has seen some exciting things happen with their No. 1 hit ‘Cruise,’ with Taylor Swift recently adding her voice alongside of Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard. Now, the band has announced a remix of their debut single with an unexpected twist, as hip-hop star Nelly will be featured on the track.
Kelley tells Country Weekly, “When we caught wind that Nelly was a fan of ‘Cruise,’ we were floored. We’ve been fans of his for years and thought it would be cool to team up on a remix.” The remix, which leaked on YouTube last week (but has since been removed), is a collaboration that fans won’t want to miss, as it combines the country newcomers that everyone’s talking about with the ‘Hot in Here’ hitmaker.
Hubbard adds, “Nelly brought a fresh, unique sound to ‘Cruise’ and we’re super-excited for our fans to hear.” This isn’t the first time the rapper has gone country, as he worked on ‘Over and Over’ with Tim McGraw, although that was almost a decade ago!
Fans of Florida Georgia Line and Nelly will be able to hear the collaboration on Apr. 2, when it’s available for download. The popular duo will keep cruising along in their fast track to success, with coveted roles opening for Swift and country star Luke Bryan. They’re also nominated for Vocal Duo of the Year and New Artist of the Year at the 2013 ACM Awards.
