Album notes

"I'm Like A Bird" won the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
This Japanese pressing contains two bonus tracks.
On WHOA NELLY, young songstress Nelly Furtado defies expectations by mixing and matching styles and approaches. The overriding production aesthetic includes R&B/hip-hop loops, beats, and samples mated with pure pop touches and some quirky electronic swoops and lurches. Furtado's songs combine hip-hop attitude with occasional Latin rhythmic accents, but the most striking aspect of this recording is the lyrics.
While it wouldn't be difficult to imagine these arrangements being completely effective framing generic pop sentiments, Furtado places no constrictions on her lyrical muse, using unusual imagery, odd syntax, and inventive scenarios that immediately set her apart from the Top 40 crowd. References to a "Mobius strip," "proper grammar," and the "North American dream" are the rule rather than the exception in Furtado's pleasingly left-field style. Her vocals and the production are so seamless that if you're not paying attention, the unusual lyrics might slip right by. If that happens, Furtado will have made some real headway in subverting the pop mainstream.

Loose: The Concert was also released as a DVD.


Track Listing:
1. Afraid
2. Say It Right

7. I'm Like a Bird
8. Glow
9. No Hay Igual

Album notes
Personnel: Saukrates (rap vocals, percussion, background vocals); James Bryan (acoustic guitar, electric guitar); Joel Joseph (keyboards, background vocals); Dean Jarvis (synthesizer, upright bass, electric bass, background vocals); Dave Langguth (drums); Jasmine Baird (background vocals).
Although singer-songwriter Nelly Furtado broke through to the mainstream with the hip-hop-inflected R&B pop of her smash hit "Promiscuous," the Canadian singer-songwriter had previously made her name as a more sensitive and folk-tinged artist. LOOSE: THE CONCERT, recorded during Furtado's 2007 world tour, is an appealing blend of the two sides of her musical world, including a solid version of her first hit, 2001's "I'm Like A Bird," and tracks from her world music-influenced second album, FOLKLORE. LOOSE: THE CONCERT was also released as a DVD.
