Nelly
Thanks To My Ex (Dirty)


genre: Hip-Hop
length: 3:28
bpm: 91
key: 5d

Upon hearing "Thanks to My Ex," rapper Nelly is the last person who comes to mind, but the only voice on the track. It seems his new fling, who just happens to be Floyd Mayweather's previous fling, has inspired Nelly to explore his voice outside the rap he's known for. Though he's featured his vocals on previous tracks, "Thanks to My Ex" is solely serenading, sans rap, as a love song to a woman he's happy to have in his life, so happy, in fact, that he's even grateful for her ex-boyfriend and his ex-girlfriend. Surprisingly, Nelly's newest goes down relatively smooth for a first foray into what essentially comes closer to R&B than hip-hop, aside from its potential to incite feuding with one of boxing's modern greatest. Eventually we may see just how thankful Nelly really is for his lady's ex-boyfriend, but for now let's just be lulled.
