Nellyville is the second studio album by American rapper Nelly. It was released on June 25, 2002, by Universal Records and the indie label Fo' Reel. Recording sessions took place over a course of the whole year, with Nelly himself, alongside Kevin Law and C-Love serving as the records executive producers. The album includes the production by Jay E, who frequently did most work with Nelly, while the additional production was provided by The Neptunes and Just Blaze. The album was supported by six singles: "#1", "Hot in Herre", "Dilemma" duet with Kelly Rowland, "Air Force Ones" featuring St. Lunatics, "Work It" featuring Justin Timberlake, and "Pimp Juice". The singles "Hot in Herre" and "Dilemma" both topped the US Billboard Hot 100 for seven and ten weeks, respectively. Nellyville debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200, selling 715,000 copies in its opening week. The album stayed atop the chart for four non-consecutive weeks and became certified six-times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shipments of over six million copies, making this Nelly's second number-one album, second multi-platinum album, and second top ten in the United States, following his debut album Country Grammar in 2000.
