The genius behind some of the noughties’ biggest hits is coming to Abu Dhabi for an epic Grand Prix weekend gig.

No, we’re not talking about Britney Spears, The Killers or the Baha Men (those guys who sang Who Let The Dogs Out).

We’re talking about Nelly, the American rapper who made wearing a plaster on your face a fashion trend.

He’s the guy responsible for absolute classics such as Ride Wit Me, Hot In Herre, Just A Dream and Dilemma, featuring Kelly Rowland.

Known as Cornell Iral Haynes Jr. to his mum, the star is coming to MAD Yas Island on Thursday November 22 as the city gears up for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

He joins French Montana on a growing list of world music stars to play at the Yas Island superclub over the F1 weekend.

The party kicks off at 11pm and continues all the way to 6am.

Entry costs Dhs300 for men, which includes two drinks, and Dhs150 for ladies, including one drink.

MAD Yas Island still has two more acts to announce for their F1 weekend line-up, so keep an eye on our dedicated Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2018 section for the latest news.

Dhs150 (ladies, includes one drink), Dhs300 (gents, includes two drinks). November 22 11pm-6am. MAD Yas Island, Yas Island (055 834 6262).
