After hinting for weeks, Republic Nashville’s Florida Georgia Line have exclusively announced, via their social networks, that a “Cruise” (Remix Feat. Nelly) will be available on April 2.
The breakout duo has caught the attention of several Superstars, including Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, and now, GRAMMY-winning Hip Hop artist Nelly. The sizzling collaboration will impact radio just in time for Spring and a taste of the new mix is subtly place in Nelly’s “Hey Porsche” video. Watch via http://vevo.ly/VfDGCr.
FGL’s Brian Kelley (Ormond Beach, Florida) says:
“When we caught wind that Nelly was a fan of ‘Cruise,’ we were floored. We’ve been fans of his music for years and thought it would be cool to team up on a remix.”
FGL’s Tyler Hubbard (Monroe, Georgia) adds:
“Nelly really brought a fresh, unique sound to ‘Cruise’ and we’re super excited for our fans to hear!”
With an ever-expanding fanbase, the remix is poised to follow the success of FGL’s Double Platinum, multi-week #1 smash “Cruise.” Their follow-up Country single, “Get Your Shine On,” has sold over 500,000 copies and is Top 15-and-climbing. Both songs are featured on their debut album HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES, which earned the highest debut album sales of 2012 for a new Country artist.
FGL’s catchy tunes and energetic live show have garnered coveted slots on two major Country tours – Taylor Swift’s “THE RED TOUR” and Luke Bryan’s “DIRT ROAD DIARIES TOUR” – this year. Next week, the hot newcomers will open for Swift’s three-night, sold-out stint at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.
