Nelly has had his share of hits and iconic music video moments, but the rapper recently touched on one in particular that his fans still discuss a decade after it took place.

Back in 2002, Nelly and Kelly Rowland linked up for their No. 1 hit “Dilemma” and later shared an accompanying video for the track. The visual starred both artists who were into each other, but they were unable to get together because Kelly was already dating someone. Her boo and her had a bit of a texting mix up when she was waiting to hear back from his texts that were somehow sent through an Excel spreadsheet on her Nokia phone.

During a recent interview on Australia’s The Project, Nelly was put on the spot (check the 3:10 mark) about the technology and completely failed at his attempt to explain why it was used. “That was the thing at the time! That was the new technology at the time,” Nelly said in defense of the texts before admitting, “It looks a little dated now.”
