5/5. Just when people thought he was done, Flo ridden out of town and out of hits, Nelly wrote another. Never count a man like this out. Nelly practically wrote the book on rap/pop crossover hits, fathering the trend that has become diluted today. The charts needed something refreshing and new so their old friend came back with 'Just A Dream'. With 'Dream' Nelly woke up the charts with a sweet little number that brought critics back to reality. The guy is still relevant and the sales and spins testify to that. Just like fellow late 90's/early new millennium, big star Usher, Nelly enjoyed a big comeback. 'Just A Dream' was a trademark mix of Nelly singing and rapping that was mainstream and hip-hop accessible. The versatile M.C. showed the fickle pop scene that it was time to stop sleeping. Good music is good music. That's Nelly for ya. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
