Nelly Fans Are Streaming 'Hot In Herre' To Help Pay Off His $2 Million Tax Debt

14 September 2016, 15:11



Nelly is currently looking to help from his fans, after he was hit with a $2 million tax bill by the US government.

According to TMZ, the ‘Country Grammer’ rapper has been ordered to pay $2,412,283 and also owes $149,511 in state taxes.

Since the news was announced, Nelly fans around the world have come together to help him pay off his debts by streaming and by his classic track ‘Hot In Herre’. 

To get anywhere near the goal, fans will need to stream a Nelly song a total of 402,880,500 times, according to SPIN.

And that is dependent on Nelly’s royalty agreements with streaming platforms, his record label and publishers.

However this fan appears to have calculated the exact numbers needed, claiming 39,000,000 paid Spotify users only need stream 104 minutes of Nelly songs.

Can Nelly fans save him from debt?
