#SaveNelly by Listening to These Songs on Spotify
If there’s a tweet that sums up the impact of Nelly’s music to our generation, it would be this:
Nelly helped you awkwardly grind on your first girlfriend during the homecoming dance. You owe him. #SaveNelly

Nelly made us believe we could dance seductively as pre-teens, and that was enough to make us love listening to him. But recent reports have revealed that the rapper is deep in debt to the IRS (a figure amounting to US$2.4 million). Amazingly enough, fans around the world have found a way to help him earn a sizable amount without them doing anything but play his songs.
According to Spin, the payout for artists per stream on Spotify lands between US$0.006 to US$0.0084. By streaming one Nelly song a minimum collective total of 287,176,547 times, it may be enough to help get Nelly unstuck from his rut.
It sounds overly optimistic, but it’s worth a shot. Here are 8 songs to stream on Spotify to #SaveNelly.
