Nelly Releases Video For 'Get Like Me' Featuring Nicki Minaj, Pharrell

(Radio.com) Nelly continues to heat up the summer with his new single "Get Like Me" and the St. Louis rapper just released the music video for the track, the lead single from his seventh studio album, M.O., due out later this year.

Directed by Colin Tilley, Nelly's smooth raps are heard over a distinct bongo beat. The black and white clip features Pharrell and Nicki Minaj who assist on the sultry track, both of who Nelly raves about in a behind-the-scenes clip.

"You know my history with Pharrell, we've always had great chemistry together," Nelly said. "This is my first time working with Nicki but she brings the energy, charisma and her star power and I think that's what the video is about. It's just about that star power, energy, and the hypeness of the joint."

Five sets were built for the video to provide a "fresh, slick set," Tilley explained.

"When we get together we like to make a song that evokes as much energy as possible, like a stimulant," Pharrell added.

Not unlike Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" (which also features Pharrell) and even Justin Timberlake's "Tunnel Vision," Nelly's video features scantily clad ladies dancing around and twerking. Nelly even uses their bodies as a drum for further effect. more on this story
