Florida Georgia Line has just surpassed 10,000 single sales on the iTunes Canada chart for their newly released remix “Cruise” with hip-hop artist Nelly. As the first single off the band’s highly successful debut album Here Comes The Good Times (Republic Nashville/Universal Music Canada), “Cruise” introduced the singers to a legion of new fans and was the highest selling debut album of 2012 for a new Country act.
“When we caught wind that Nelly was a fan of “Cruise”, we were floored,” says FGL singer Brian Kelley. “We’ve been fans of his music for years and thought it would be cool to team up on a remix.”
