  • This M.O. track features the Canadian-Portuguese songstress Nelly Furtado. Speaking with Digital Spy, the rapper called it the "first ever Nelly and Nelly collaboration." Nelly added: "It's me, you know. It's more of a stressless song and something that's very inspiring. It's something that I think people were probably expecting as a love song from Nelly and Nelly, so we definitely wanted to take it into a different direction to make people think a little bit."
