Lil Bit

Album: yet to be titled (2020)

Songfacts®:

  • This country-meets-hip-hop crossover features Florida Georgia Line. The ode to a new romance finds the trio recounting an encounter with a girl in a club. They immediately hit it off, and she asks them to take her to the country and show her where they're from. She has a choice: Nelly hails from St. Louis, FGL's Brian Kelley is from Ormond Beach, Florida, and his bandmate Tyler Hubbard is a native of Monroe, Georgia.
  • The song came together when Nelly stopped by Nashville for three weeks to record material for a country-influenced EP.
  • Nelly first teamed up with Florida Georgia Line in 2013 for a remix of the duo's smash hit debut single, "Cruise." The St. Louis rapper later joined Hubbard and Kelley on a couple of tours.
  • Nelly has form for country collaborations, dating back to 2003 when he linked up with Tim McGraw for the country-rap hybrid "Over And Over." This is his third hookup with a country act in 2020, following Jimmie Allen's "Good Times Roll" and Kane Brown's "Cool Again."
