Nelly’s 2002 hit “Hot In Herre” has certainly stood the test of time, still getting regular plays at all sorts of functions—from clubs to awkward high school dances and tongue-in-cheek wedding receptions, it’s been a staple of danceable music for nearly 15 years.

Nelly is in a bit of trouble. But you can help. The rapper needs to pay off $2.4 million in federal and state taxes, and as SPIN was kind enough to calculate, it will only require 287,176,547 streams of “Hot In Herre” to do so. That number was calculated based on the average pay-out per Spotify stream (between $0.006 and $0.0084).

Of course, that streaming goal can also be achieved by listening to any of Nelly’s other songs. “Ride Wit Me” is another great suggestion, as are “Country Grammar (Hot Shit)” and “Air Force Ones”—you know the man’s resumé. Do the right thing and listen to some Nelly on full blast, or just loop a song and mute it … the choice is yours.
