"Hot in Herre" is a song by American rapper Nelly from his second studio album Nellyville (2002). It was released on May 7, 2002, by Universal Records as the second single from the project and features additional vocals by former labelmate Dani Stevenson.[citation needed] The song was produced by The Neptunes.[citation needed]

"Hot in Herre" is a hip hop song that incorporates its hook from go-go performer Chuck Brown's 1979 single "Bustin' Loose".

Awards and accolades[edit]

"Hot in Herre" was the inaugural winner of the Grammy Award for Best Male Rap Solo Performance at the 45th Annual Grammy Awards on February 23, 2003.

In 2008, it was ranked number 36 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop.

Commercial performance[edit]

The song was Nelly's first number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and in Canada. It peaked at number four in the United Kingdom, and also hit the top ten in other international markets. The song was number three in the Billboard Year-End Hot 100 Singles Chart for 2002.

Music video[edit]

There were two music videos made for the single "Hot in Herre", one set in a dance club, and an alternative one shot at the St. Louis Arch. The alternative video was played on MTV Europe instead of the official one.

The original video features cameo appearances by actor and comedian Cedric the Entertainer, NBA player Carmelo Anthony, and NFL players T. J. Duckett and Julius Peppers.

One scene of the music video features Nelly and the club goers shouting the chorus for "The Roof Is on Fire" while there's a fire actually burning in the club.

Other versions[edit]

"Hot in Herre" has been remade by the following artists:

  • Canadian electronic artist Tiga, who remade "Hot in Herre" with Scissor Sisters lead singer Jake Shears on vocals, giving it a more monotone, electro feel (this reached number 46 in the UK). A music video was created for Tiga's version of the song which aired in heavy rotation. The video starred puppets depicting cliche scenes from hip hop videos of the era.
  • Widespread Panic, whose arrangement was included on their album Jackassolantern and was featured on an episode of The O.C..
  • Jenny Owen Youngs, whose version also had an accompanying video.[1]
  • The BossHoss recorded the song.
  • In the live version of "Jocko Homo" on Devo's album DEVOlution is Real: Live in Central Park, Mark Mothersbaugh briefly sings the chorus of "Hot in Herre" before the song's "O-HI-O" breakdown.
  • Jill Sobule did the song acoustically at a live performance in Seattle with Melissa Ferrick.
  • Wang Chung performed the song on the television show Hit Me, Baby, One More Time.
  • The song was parodied as "Trash Day" by "Weird Al" Yankovic on the album Poodle Hat, replacing the chorus with "There's somethin' rotten here, (say what?) you better hold your nose."
  • The song was parodied by Mad TV in a sketch satirizing the controversy surrounding the Catholic Church and young boys.
  • The song is featured in The Sims 4: Seasons expansion pack for The Sims 4, rerecorded in the series' fictional Simlish language.
  • Actor Danny Jacobs recorded the song for the movie Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted
  • Actor Keri Russell sang the chorus during a scene in the 2013 romantic comedy Austenland.[2] During the final credits the original recording was also played over a video featuring the film's main characters.[3]
  • In May 2020, it was sampled on Erica Banks’ song "Buss It", which went viral in January 2021.
