Nelly Furtado: JJ Music Monday!

Nelly Furtado is back – and her hot new track, “Big Hoops (Bigger the Better),” is this week’s pick for JustJared.com and 102.7 KIIS-FM‘s JJ Music Monday!

The 33-year-old Canadian singer co-wrote the track with producer Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins for her upcoming fourth English album, The Spirit Indestructible, which drops June 19.

“I began writing these songs around the time I released my Spanish album Mi Plan,” Nelly shared.

“I was in a great headspace, feeling refreshed and ready to really deliver in English again. This album is all about positivity, youth, good energy, and the relentlessness of the spirit,” she added. “I want people to live this music the way we did when we wrote it. I want them to jump, dance, scream, laugh, cry, love, and vibe to it, and to turn it up very loud everywhere.”

I love Nelly but this sounds like Rihanna and that is tragic

Nelly Furtado is only 33 :o. She’s been around so long I thought she’d be older. Nice to her around but really do not like the song. It’s not a good one.

Im so happy Nelly back, I really wish she would take long breaks but it give us time to miss her and she always comes back with a hit album. I wish other artists would do the something.

@Dee: Rihanna was not the first and won’t be the last to repetitively say “eh” on a track…and who is the Canadian of the two anyway. Nelly’s gunna do what she do.

horrible. FLOP

This song is DOPE ! The beatttt is amazing ! & it’s mad catchy, watch her top the charts again

Sounds like a song written for Rihanna. And yes, I know Nelly is around much longer, I like her, but back then her music was more like “I’m like a bird” and less Rihanna.

@Birdie:

Do you not remember promiscuous girl and her Loose album had this same kind of feel which came out in 2006. When RiRi came out her music was more like pon de replay with the whole island them going on or did you forget.

Portuguese beauty!

I love this song! Just bought *** on iTunes. :)
