BACKGROUND AND PRODUCTION

Nelly himself, alongside Kevin Law and C-Love was serving as the executive producers on Nellyville. The majority of this recording was perfected by Steve Eigner, who was assisted by Marc Lee. Rich Travali was assisted by Jeff Robinette, while Jamie Duncan and Dan Milazzo were performing the mixing on the album. Audio mastering was done by Herb Powers, with A">'s Dele Fadele saw Nellyville
Nellyville
as Nelly's "reply to the haters"; Fadele described the album as a "glossy, well-produced album of populist anthems with a gangsta undertow" that expands his perspective of the world and "celebrates success". Though Fadele wasn't impressed at the Justin Timberlake featured track "Work It", calling the song a "silly pop-directed collaboration". The A.V. Club 's Nathan Rabin praised Nellyville
Nellyville
for achieving similar universal appeal to Nelly's previous effort Country Grammar , which achieved it with songs such as its self-titled track and "E.I. ". Rabin criticized Timberlake's "high-schooler doing a Bee Gees impersonation" on "Work It", though noted the song as the only "glaring misstep" on the album. People lauded "Hot in Herre" for its "funky go-go groove", declaring it the "perfect summer jam", but were ambivalent towards the rest of the album's beats for being slightly repetitive. Rolling Stone 's Rob Marriott described Nelly as a "gifted, witty MC" with the "catchiest rhymes to ever hit the pop charts" but wrote that Nellyville
Nellyville
sounds "weighted down" by the commercial pressure of having to have another multi-platinum album.
