Nelly to Open Pacquiao Vs. Margarito Fight

Nelly had nearly fallen off the musical map, but after a couple big months and a legitimate comeback single, he’s about to play his biggest stage in years. The Grammy-winning hip-hop star is slated to perform his smash hit ‘Just a Dream’ as a warm-up to the heavily anticipated boxing match between Manny Pacquiao and Antonio Margarito this weekend. The performance will take place right before the fighters step into the ring in front a live crowd at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, Texas on Nov. 13.

‘Just a Dream’ has been an endearing return-to-form for Nelly. Off his upcoming ‘5.0,’ which hits stores Nov. 17 via Universal Motown, the song catapulted the ‘Hot in Herre’ hitmaker to No. 1 on the iTunes Hip-Hop chart and to a top 5 showing on the Billboard Hot 100 and Digital Songs chart. The upcoming fight has an expected live attendance of 50,000 and millions will view the match through HBO Pay-Per-View.

While Nelly might not have been making the same sort of splash as his formative years, he has certainly kept busy. He recently released a fitness DVD and currently runs a female fashion line, record label and two non-profit organizations while having an ownership share of the Charlotte Bobcats NBA expansion team.
