"Over and Over" is a song recorded by American rapper Nelly. It was released on September 12, 2004 as the second single from his fourth album Suit. It was released two days before Sweat and Suit hit stores. It features American country music singer Tim McGraw. The song, which was written by Nelly, Jayson "KoKo" Bridges, James D. Hargrove, and Tim McGraw, peaked at number three on the US Billboard Hot 100. Musicians contributing to the recording include Jeremy von Nida, Guitar, Bryan Loss, Drums, and Matthew Brauss, Bass Guitar.

Outside of the United States, the single topped the charts in Australia, the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom, and peaked within the top ten of the charts in Austria, Canada, Denmark, Germany, New Zealand, Romania and Switzerland.

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Sherman Halsey. During the video, Nelly and McGraw sing individually on split screen. It starts with Nelly and Tim both waking up at 5:30 A.M., both taking showers, and both leaving their houses & getting into vehicles. The settings feature similar scenes of them encountering fans at gas stations, traveling, and making visits to the airport, all the while both preoccupied with their respective significant others. In the end, they both depart on separate but comparable private jets, possibly to meet up with the women they have been singing about throughout the video.
