Last year, Nelly spoke on piecing together the new LP.
“This [is] my seventh album and when you’ve been fortunate enough to be in any career 12-13 years, re-inventing yourself and staying hungry in that career is your biggest challenge,” Nelly told The Juice. “You get a chance to do things and change things around but also having to remind yourself that you do have a core audience that like what they like from you. You have to take that core audience and try to get a new audience and combine that with walking the line that a lot of people haven’t been able to do thus far.” (The Juice)
