Nelly has revealed that he is in no rush to wed girlfriend and singer Ashanti focusing all his efforts on his latest album release.
Talking with Rap Up the singer revealed "I'm not a person that wants to get married more than once. You see what I'm saying? If I'ma do it, I'ma do it and that's it. You're dying if you leave me,".
Of his relationship with Ashanti, he added: "Right now we're friends, man. I'm married to my work, my new album 5.0. You see what I'm saying?
"I'm married to getting things in a certain situation right now and she's married to getting things in a certain situation. So again, man, we enjoy each other's company and love it."
The singer also explained his views on the pressure of being under the spotlight as a celebrity couple explaining: "You know, it's like society puts a pressure on you because they want to see it turn into a certain relationship. You see what I'm saying?
"But if that relationship doesn't work, then society doesn't take the responsibility of when it doesn't work. It's kind of like, 'Oh, oh, okay, we'll move on to the next couple we want to see'.
"I think what people don't understand, is that I think you really have to be friends first. I think that's the thing."
