1000 No. 1s Video Series Day 12:
Nelly Talks About Topping the Hot 100
2011 was the year that Billboard celebrated the 1000th No. 1 song on the Hot 100. As we look back on this year in music, we're celebrating that milestone with a month-long series of videos --- one for each day of December -- chatting with 31 of the hitmakers who rocketed to the top of the chart since its inception in 1958. SEE THE FULL CHART HERE.
The St. Louis rapper, along side his "little sister" Kelly Rowland, took the Hot 100 by storm. The duet, which reached No. 1 on Aug. 17, 2002, stayed atop the Hot 100 for 10 weeks straight. On it's ninth week (Oct. 21), "Dilemma," went straight to No. 1 of the U.K. singles chart.
Be sure to come back tomorrow (Dec. 13) for the next 1000 No. 1s video: Tiffany talks about her No. 1s, "I Think We're Alone Now" and "Could've Been."
