Kane Brown and Nelly "Cool Again"

Watch Kane Brown Reveal How He Met Nelly And The Story Behind The “Cool Again” Remix

Kane Brown reveals how he first met Grammy-Award winning rapper Nelly and is sharing the story behind the remix of “Cool Again.”

The pair released the remix of “Cool Again” on Friday (August 7) with a music video, filmed on the beach in Miami, Florida in late June.

Brown said that he grew up listening to Nelly and loved his album, Country Grammar, which just celebrated its 20th anniversary.

“I loved working with Nelly just because I grew up listening to his music. I loved Country Grammar,” Brown explained.

The country superstar said that he brought so much energy to the song and really brought more star power to the breezy, summertime track.

“And, just him getting on the song just brought so much energy in his verse. And, we went over what we wanted it to sound like six different times I think it got changed and he really brought his all,” Brown added.

The went on to talk about the music video and how they met, which actually Brown met Nelly before he became a singer.

“And then, doing the music video it was like we had been boys for years and that was my second time meeting him, but first time meeting him as an artist. I had actually met Nelly two years, I believe, before I got into the music industry. I was still on Facebook. It was crazy because he remembered that moment where I met him.” Brown said. “Usually, they’ll be like, “Yeah, I remember,” but he remembered exactly where it was and when we met. So, it was just cool. And, just to see his energy and everything he brought to the video, it just pumped me up even more. It was fun. I’m grateful that he was on the record.”

Brown originally released “Cool Again” in late April. “Cool Again” was co-written by Brown alongside Josh Hoge, Matthew McGinn and Lindsay Rimes. The fan-favorite track will appear on Brown’s forthcoming EP, which is expected to drop August 14.
