It’s been nine years since Nelly hooked up with Kelly Rowland for their smash duet “Dilemma,” but 2011 sees them giving their musical chemistry another test with new track “Gone.”

A lot’s changed in the intervening years, but will this pairing work once more? Last.fm Trends is looking at the scrobbles of both artists to check their compatibility.

He’s released four albums since, but it’s still third-ever single “Ride Wit Me” that rules his charts, with 670,424 scrobbles from 244,428 listeners.

Her forthcoming album will only be her third, but she’s managed to gain 5,103,228 plays from 615,589 listeners so far. Her latest single, dance track “Commander” has been dominating her charts lately, but a slide in listeners suggests that fans are eager for more of her classic R&B sound. It seems another collaboration with Nelly could be just the ticket.
