Product Description

Over the course of his short career Nelly has produced 3 Multi-Platinum albums that have not only catapulted him into world-wide fame, but established St. Louis as a fertile ground for rap & Hip-Hop. With the simultaneous releases of his fourth & fifth albums-Nelly continues a career that evolves & blurs the lines of Party Rap, Pop-Rap, Brag Rap & Country Rap. With two collections of songs that has everything to offer all people. From the lead single "My Place" to the auto biographical "Die For You" to the club sensation "Flap Your Wings". Nelly reaches out to fans on all levels. This fall everyone will have the opportunity to SWEAT it out & SUIT it up.

Amazon.com

While its companion disc Suit offers Nelly at his most mature and refined, Sweat takes direct aim at the "Hot in Herre" crowd. Why not? "Hot in Herre" has reached karaoke proportions. Nelly wastes little time here in reminding everyone just how great he is on "Na-Nana-Na," where he recites an inventory of his accomplishments over a smattering of found sounds and drum breaks. The Neptunes-hemmed "Flap Your Wings" may reestablish him as the king of club rap, with its infectious "drop down and get your eagle on, girl" chant that comes with an accompanying dance. "Tilt Ya Head Back," featuring a subpar Christina Aguilera, and the dubby "River Don't Runnn" are both confounding yet genetically engineered for radio airplay. Don't hate the player, hate the game. Who else would have the nerve to re-jig the instantly recognizable John Tesh "NBA on NBC" theme ("Heart of a Champion") into a hip-hop club track? --Dalton Higgins

The production value on this album is astounding with crisp sounding beats, sounds, and vocals.

This cd isnt bad, but if you dont have the money to blow, don't buy it.

It seems that most people either love Nelly or hate him. I always just thought he was okay. I was initially surprised that he was releasing two albums, and I was flabbergasted to learn that he was originally going to release FIVE albums. Anyway, Sweat seems to be for the fellas, so I gave it a spin.

I didn't expect this album to be all that great, but actually it's better than I thought it would be. But don't get too excited; I rated it three stars. Anyway, there ARE some songs on here that have potential to be hits, like the obligatory Jazze Pha track "Na-Nana-Na" (it's not called "Can We Leave Her" (here) like a lot of people think). And "Another One" is especially interesting due to Nelly's diss to Chingy (but does anyone really care about a Nelly vs. Chingy beef?). There are also some okay songs like "Getcha Getcha" and "American Dream" (both featuring St. Lunatics).

But there's also a whole lot of filler, like "Tilt Ya Head Back" (with Christina Aguilera) and the necessary Neptunes track, "Flap Your Wings" (by the way, what exactly does "drop down and get your eagle on" mean?). And "Grand Hang Out" (with Fat Joe, Young Tru and Remy Martin) suffers because of two things: the lame chorus and Young Tru's entire verse. "Spida Man" makes no sense at all; and "Heart of a Champion", which uses the NBA on NBC's music as its backdrop, should have never made it out of the studio.

Another thing people have probably noticed about this album is that it's just LITTERED with guest stars. This album is probably perfect for fans of Nelly, but everyone else will just say it's okay. It would be fine for a party, making Sweat live up to its title, but fans looking for substance will most likely want to check out something else.

Anthony Rupert

P.S. In response to another reviewer, "Over and Over" is on Suit, not Sweat.

Good on ya reviewer dave for pointing out the obvious, and of course mikki mouse, yet again, for showing that u know what u are talking about. mikki mouse is right, this aint even rap, its POP music, and i didnt even know there was a song with christina aguilera LOL that makes it even more funnier. this along with suit are 2 of the worst "hip-hop" albums ever, because they arent even hip-hop. nelly is commercial crap, just like his last album nellyville. dont support and feed out your money to a weak talentless little fool who wears a bandaid on his face coz he thinks it "gangsta". support pioneers of rap, support rappers with TALENT, support underground rap, dont support this CRAP. krs-one, rakim, slick rick, esham, eazy-e, dilated peoples, three 6 mafia, jurassic 5, styles of beyond, natas, the d.o.c., chino xl, kool keith, etc. coif u aint heard the majority of them your opinion is garbage, fo reel. DONT buy any nelly crap. (or other crap like jay-z, ja rule, dmx, eminem, 50 cent, d12, g-unit), BECAUSE THEY ALL HAVE NO TALENT

Wow, two albums both at the top of the charts? I bet the record executives didn't plan that, huh? And the U.S. is just that easy to score off when you're a cocky pretender like Nelly. I can't believe both albums are at the top. This is outrageous. Flabbergasting. Ridiculous. Hopeless. The music nowadays (not just rap, almost every genre) has regressed and been diluted so bad that Nelly can get so much attention and hype for three albums in a row. MC Hammer, Vanilla Ice, etc. were hyped up too but could not ride fame that long before being pointed out as phonies and being ridiculed. And Nelly's basically pulling the same sh*t only in today's sh**ty music world. Don't try and say otherwise.

Okay, go ahead and say that I have too much time on my hands! I do at the moment, but while I do, I'm gonna try and do something to try and stop ignorance as much as I can through this. Some artists are sellouts in that they can make real music that is meaningful but they change their agenda to make more money and appease more. Nelly is not a sellout. He's just not a very bright guy, apparently. Making true and meaningful music is most likely beyond him, and he probably grew up listening to the radio and watching videos thinking that was what rap music is. And now he is is just doing his version of what he thinks rap music is. No doubt, his bling-bling, playa, thug facade is still selling to America the slut.

I would say hiphop is dead too, but with so many 'real' albums coming out this year (Gift of Gab, Brand Nubian, KRS, Kool Keith, and upcoming De La Soul, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Dr. Octagon, and possibly Tribe Called Quest) underground and old-school style hiphop is making a comeback whether the mainstream recognizes that or not. Do yourself a favor and quit listening to the radio.

Being a fan of R&B, I listened to Nelly's album, "Suit" in hopes of finding some decent R&B songs. I wasn't expecting much though I was still sadly disappointed. The album was not nearly as classy as people made it out to be and Nelly is in no way a great rapper. Nonetheless, I figured I might as well give his other new album a fair shot. "Sweat" is supposed to be the more club-centred of the two so listeners should not go in looking for substance. This album features far less guest appearances than its counterpart though each album has its odd guest. (Christina Aguilera on this one, Tim McGraw on "Suit"). I'm sure just the name Christina Aguilera on this album will be enough to get people to buy it but they will be buying at their own risk.

"Heart of a Champion" has great background music though the rest of the song does not live up to that. Nelly's rap is quite average. However, the chorus does sound particularly great. The verses contain a lot of name-dropping and some shouting, which detracts from the overall quality. At least this song is a little more memorable than much of the material on "Suit". The extraordinarily irritating "Na-Na-Na-Na" is up next. The song is repetitive and grating even for a dance song although I guess if you were in a club it wouldn't matter as you can dance to it. However, wouldn't most of us be buying these CDs for listening to at our houses and therefore not be in a club? Maybe I'm reading too far into this. Also, the song is far too long considering that it isn't even that good. "Flap Your Wings" is up next and is no better. Although I didn't think this was possible, it is even more repetitive than the song before it.

As I was listening to the album, I was looking for a file on the computer and the song switched to "American Dream".
