"My guess is most pop fans will be singing along well before the end of 'Just a Dream' and will want to hear it again". By the time Nelly gets around to singing, "If you ever loved somebody put your hands up", Nelly told Carbonated. TV that the reason his single is connecting with people is because of the "relatable" subject matter—love. "I think that the way the whole song plays out, with the beat and the lyrics, I think it comes together in the sense of it’s almost a timeless song".
Many are speculating "Just a Dream", which is becoming a very big radio hit, is actually about Ashanti, He responds in an interview for "That Grape Juice", "No it's not about Ashanti. It's just a song that I and my man [Rico] came up with. It's a song that just relatable on all levels – rich, poor, black, white, child, adult - whatever level it is. If [thinking it’s about Ashanti] is what helps people to go out and support it then so be it (giggles).
