Spotify Streaming of Nelly Has Tripled Since Fans Started the #SaveNelly Campaign

1 minute read

When news broke last week that Nelly was reportedly in some major debt with the IRS, fans rallied around the rapper, running with a solution proposed by Spin that listeners should stream the rapper’s songs on Spotify a collective 287,176,547 times so that he could receive a sizeable payout.

Fans started using the hashtag #SaveNelly, playing hits like “Hot in Herre” and “Ride Wit Me” often on repeat to help the rapper rack up plays.

Less than a week later, it looks like the #SaveNelly campaign has already helped Nelly rack up some major airtime on Spotify. Spotify told TIME that streams of Nelly during peak listening hours have tripled compared to the previous week.
