Nelly at the YH Studio
"When I come up with that next Nelly trademark... We're premiering it right here on Young Hollywood." --- Nelly visits the YH Studio

This week’s Studio Secrets:  YH takes you behind the scenes at the studio with Nelly, Hedley, and MattyB.

“It’s gettin hot in hurrrrr…..” ahh it never gets old… and that’s what’s so cool about Nelly.  His ability to keep things fresh even after 10 years of continued success is pretty remarkable – whenever his hits and trademark phrases come on the radio, the volume goes up; when Nelly plays in the clubs, the dance floor gets packed. Check out what rapper/business man Nelly has to say at our YH studio about sticking with the music and coming back hotter than ever with his new album, “5.0,” and hit song “Just a Dream.”

The talented rock-pop-punk band, Hedley, dropped by the YH Studio to perform an amazing acoustic set of their single “Perfect” off their album, “The Show Must Go.”  If you haven’t heard of these Canadian rockers, they’ve earned two multi-platinum albums and find that the key to success is not taking yourself too seriously… as they clearly demonstrate in this video clip below while having a little too much fun playing with our studio set – especially our one and only shrine… the Medusa lamp…

YH was super excited to be the first to interview this little rising superstar and our youngest guest in the studio to date… MattyB!!!  Seriously, this is one of the cutest kids I’ve ever met.  Calling him a mini-Bieber (he’s even got the hair!) isn’t even enough as this 7-year-old can probably rap anyone under the table.  If you haven’t heard his songs, just go to YouTube and search “MattyBRaps” and you’ll see his viral hits that have garnered millions of views.  His sweet spot is being able to re-invent such hits as Eminem’s “I Love the Way You Lie,” Mike Posner’s “Cooler Than Me,” Ke$ha’s “We R Who We R”, and even Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair." Check out the video below of MattyB in the studio sporting his YH hat!
