5.0 is the eagerly awaited follow-up to NELLY’s gold-certified 2008 album, Brass Knuckles, which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart. The new album marks a solid return to form for the St. Louis native who recently teamed up with the Ford Motor Company to feature a tricked-out 2011 Mustang GT customized by DUB magazine on the cover of 5.0. The new album features appearances by Akon, T.I. and Kelly Rowland.
