"The Fix" is a song by American hip hop recording artist Nelly featuring American singer Jeremih. The track is produced by DJ Mustard and Mike Free and interpolates Marvin Gaye's 1982 hit song "Sexual Healing".[2] The song came to fruition as a result of Nelly and DJ Mustard having the same publisher, who made sure all references to the interpolation contained within "The Fix" were cleared before it was released.[3]

Background[edit]

The song premiered on August 6, 2015,[4] and was released for digital download on August 14.[5]

Commercial performance[edit]

"The Fix" debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart dated September 5, 2015 at number 86.[6] Its chart debut was fueled by first-week digital download sales of 42,000 copies.[7] As of June 2016, "The Fix" has been certified Platinum from RIAA for selling 1,000,000 copies domestically.[8]

Music video[edit]

The accompanying music video for the track was directed by Aristotle and filmed at the Sheats Goldstein Residence in Beverly Crest, Los Angeles, California.[9] It was released on September 24, 2015.[9]
