"Flap Your Wings" is a single by the hip hop artist Nelly, released in 2004, from the album Sweat. It was released as a double A-side with "My Place" in the UK and New Zealand.

Music video[edit]

The music video starts off with Nelly in a car with rapper Ali, singing along to "Down In Da Water". He arrives at a cave, and walks through, as the music starts to play. It continues with Nelly rapping, and many girls dancing around him. As the music video comes to an end, it shows the scene at exactly the start of the video for "My Place".
