Nelly‘s last single, an homage to super freaky funk/soul icon Rick James, earned a none-too-impressive two out of five-star average rating from our readers. Needless to say, your harsh feedback cut the St. Louis representative to the core, and he’s spent the intervening days eating Ben & Jerry’s seasoned with hot tears of shame. Nah, just kidding—as he makes abundantly clear on his latest song release, he doesn’t give one solitary f**k about anything standing between him and a good time. On, IDGAF Nelly reunites with his collaborators from the aforementioned Booth-panned joint. Pharrell Williams mans the boards, crafting a brisk, dancefloor-ready groove to back the headliner as he showcases his devil-may-care attitude in self-assured, sung verses. ATL heavyweight T.I. provides two high-energy 16s to bookend the cut. Has the trio put together a more appealing product this time around? Debate away—and keep it locked for the latest on Nelly’s M.O. LP, scheduled to hit record stores and online retailers September 30.
