Nelly fans are streaming the 2002 hit about stripping down in the heat as a way to help the rapper make some extra money, and are encouraging others to do the same on social media. The idea originated with a SPIN magazine story claiming the hit song would need to be streamed 287 million times in order to pay down a hefty IRS bill reported byTMZ.

Citizens of Nellyville have taken action.

Representatives for Nelly have not immediately responded to USA TODAY's requests for comment regarding this story. Spotify is sharing updated Nelly streaming figures Wednesday.
