Nelly celebrated the 20th anniversary of his debut album ‘Country Grammar’ in style at the 2020 American Music Awards.
On Sunday night, the rap star performed a medley of his early hits, ‘Country Grammar,’ ‘E.I.,’ and ‘Ride Wit Me’ in honor of his diamond-certified hit album being released 20 years ago and propelled him into rap superstardom.
The three-time AMA winner was joined onstage by City Spud, who was featured on the smash hit single ‘Ride wit Me’ upon its release in 2001.
The AMAs performance continued a string of 2020 appearances — both on television and other artists’ tracks — for Nelly, who is currently competing on the 29th season of Dancing With the Stars. The rapper also recently made a cameo on Kane Brown’s ‘Cool Again’ and teamed with Jimmie Allen for ‘Good Times Roll.’
Nelly’s last LP was 2013’s ‘M.O.’ He’s since released several singles, including 2015’s ‘The Fix’ featuring Jeremih and 2018’s ‘Freaky With You’ with Jacquees. Last month, he collaborated with Florida Georgia Line on ‘Lil Bit.’
