Nelly Furtado who first broke into the mainstreams telling everybody that she’s so much like a bird (I’m Like A Bird) has already composed much of her next LP that she hopes to finish by the fall.
Nelly, whose last hit was ‘S**t On The Radio’, recently recorded a song with The Roots, which will likely appear on their next album, and soon she’ll enter the studio with Colombian folk/alternative artist Juanes to sing a song called ‘Fotografias’ for his next album. Plus she may re-arrange her schedule to work with alternative rap group Jurassic 5 and may even collaborate with Carlos Santana on his next release.”I’ve always had an open mentality with music. Music is inanimate and beautiful. You can make anything happen as long as you’re passionate and you don’t close your mind,” said the striking and beautiful Canadian vocalist.
For months now, she’s been writing for the disc, which she says will be musically “more advanced” than ‘Whoa, Nelly!’ “It’s still going to be alternative pop music but it’s going to have a world edge to it,” she said. “It’s going to be international-sounding, and I’m going to try raising the bar. Basically, we’re just going to continue to do what we did last time, which is to not care about the outside world and just care about what we want to hear.”
In other related news, Nelly, who in the past has been touted as the thinking man’s Christina Aguilera, just loves living the single life and is convinced that Mr Right does not exist which is why she never fails to say that she has truckloads of friends. “I don’t have a steady boyfriend. I don’t need one and it’s empowering for me to say it. Girls focus too much on this idea of Prince Charming. It’s so negative, especially when you are really young.”
