New York, NY -- Derrty Entertainment/Universal Motown's multi-platinum and Grammy winning rapper/actor/entrepreneur Nelly will soon release his kinetic new single "Party People," from his upcoming 5th album Brass Knuckles. Reminiscent of Nelly's mega club hit "Hot In Herre," "Party People" features the pop sensation, Fergie of the Black Eye Peas.

The new single, with a video scheduled for imminent shooting in Los Angeles, adds another signature club classic to Nelly's celebrated run of undeniable dance smashes including his game-changing debut "Country Grammar," and the seven-week No. 1 "Hot in Herre." Joining Nelly behind the board is track producer Polow Da Don, one of today's most bankable hitmakers, with a long resume of smashes by Usher, Ludacris, Ciara, Rich Boy, Fergie and many others. He is No. 5 Hot 100 Producer and No. 1 R&B/Hip-Hop Producer, in Billboard Magazine's 2007 year-end rankings.

"Party People" is a hot advance taste of Brass Knuckles, Nelly's first full album of new songs since his historic simultaneously-released 2004 multi-platinum chart-toppers Sweat and Suit. Blending old and new school hip-hop, the guest list of Brass Knuckles is packed with such heavyweight as Chuck D., Jermaine Dupri, Akon, T.I., LL Cool J, Snoop Dogg and Nelly's own hometown vets the St. Lunatics.

With the release of Sweat and Suit, Nelly was the first hip-hop artist to debut at #1 and #2 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart, placing him alongside just two other legends, Bruce Springsteen and Guns N' Roses. He combined the two albums into the innovative 2005 release Sweatsuit, and added to the package his 4th No. 1 single, "Grillz.." Nelly is a 3X Grammy winner, American Music Award recipient, and a 6X Billboard Music Awards winner, His 2001 classic release Country Grammar has sold eight million albums. Nelly starred in the remake of The Longest Yard, MTV Films' biggest money-earner of all time, and was also executive producer of the hit soundtrack album.

The People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive alumnus has a decade-long list of accomplishments that include founding the label Derrty Entertainment, where he is currently CEO; launching two highly successful clothing labels, Apple Bottoms and Vokal and the all-natural energy drink Pimp Juice; and his ownership role in the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats, along with BET founder Robert Johnson and basketball great Michael Jordan.
