Dabbling in country music is nothing new for Nelly, and now the Texas rapper has offered up his own interpretation of one of the genre's hottest songs this year.

Nelly's latest homage to country music involves flipping Georgia bro-country figure Thomas Rhett's gentle love song "Die a Happy Man" on its head, dressing it up with a heavy dose of his own R&B flavour.

Nelly's last full-length release was 2013's M.O.. You can take a listen to his decidedly different rendition of Rhett's country chart-topper in the player below courtesy of Billboard.
