Hey, must be the money! Apparently not, It's reportedly getting "Hot in Herre" for Nelly who was hit with a $2.4 million dollar tax lien.
Okay look Here's the "Dilemma:" Published reports surfaced this week claiming that the St. Louis native was hit with the federal tax lien along with over $145,000 is state taxes that were left unpaid, and folks are doing their part to #SaveNelly by streaming "Hot in Herre" repeatedly to pay down the debt.
How does streaming his music contribute? According to Spin Magazine, streaming giants like Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal pay artist anywhere in the ball park of $0.006 and $0.0084 per stream. So fans would have to play his music roughly 402 million times to help him out if his royalties are on the low end of the spectrum. If he gets paid the maximum per stream then fans only need to stream "Hot in Herre" about 287 million times.
That's a lot of "Country Grammar" but despite the negative publicity fans especially the younger generation are streaming his music-- getting up on the dance floor and helping Nelly "give that man what he's asking for".
