Multi-platinum-selling, Grammy-winning global superstar, actress, philanthropist and recent Canadian “Walk of Fame” inductee, Nelly Furtado, celebrates her first 10 years of recording with the release of her first greatest hits compilation album, The Best Of Nelly Furtado (Geffen Records). Her eclectic folky beginnings and subsequent crossover into the realms of mainstream American pop and Latin music brought about the adoration and support of millions, and now she’ll be treating the world to this new album. It features #1 Pop smashes, collaborations and three previously unreleased recordings.
Of the previously unreleased recordings, “Night Is Young,” the album’s first single, was co-produced by Salaam Remi (Nas, The Fugees, Amy Winehouse) and Staybent Krunk-A-Delic, and co-written by Nelly Furtado. Producer Remi and Furtado also co-wrote “Girlfriend” while “Stars,” was produced by Lester Mendez who co-wrote the track with Furtado.
The Best Of Nelly Furtado looks back at a simply sensational and genuinely global first decade for the acclaimed Canadian-born singer-songwriter of Portuguese heritage. She has won and has been nominated for seven Grammy awards, has a BRIT Award win, and has been awarded numerous Junos (Canada’s equivalent of the Grammy), including Album Of The Year for Loose as well as an MTV Europe Music Award. Furthermore, she has been nominated for a handful of Billboard Latin Music Awards and a Grammy for her groundbreaking 2009 album Mi Plan that further solidifies her vibrant and successful career as a dual language superstar. Embracing different cultures, musical styles and even languages, Nelly Furtado has helped define musical diversity for a new generation. Her multi-cultural sound proved to be intensely popular as reflected by the tremendous success of singles “I’m Like a Bird” and “Turn Off the Light,” which helped the album to reach platinum status several times and being awarded Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for “I’m Like a Bird” at the 2002 Grammy Awards. Nelly Furtado ended up taking the Grammy for
This well-crafted compilation manifests Nelly’s evolving versatility and profound interests as a recording artist. Throughout her career as a singer, she has been able to reinvent herself over and over showing the world an entirely different dimension of her character and creative capacity as an artist for every song she releases—from doing pop classic “I’m Like a Bird” to an eclectic folk-indie upbeat “Força” then shifting to an energizing danceable hip-hop song “Promiscuous” which became an instant hit, earning her the number one spot at the Billboard Hot 100. Being ever-dynamic and multi-faceted as an artist is probably something that gained her several well-deserved titles and a large number of enthusiasts all over the world.
Hear Nelly’s greatest hits in this 2-cd deluxe album which includes 18 tracks and a bonus cd containing new collaborations with other known artists such as Michael Buble and Keith Urban.
I saw her MTV once, and I super lover he aura. I'm not sure if it is because of the make-up. But she really looks glowing. I wonder what's her secret. I heard she is using the best eye wrinkle cream.
