The 'I'm Like A Bird' singer's new music isn't like anything you've heard from her before.
Nelly Furtado is a name everybody reading surely remembers, but one which the masses haven’t heard for a while. The Canadian pop singer rose to prominence in the early aughts with songs like “I’m Like A Bird” and “Turn Off The Light,” and then a few years later she truly struck gold with her album Loose, which spun off the No. 1 smashes “Promiscuous” and “Say It Right.” Since the promotion of that Earth-shattering record died down, not much has been heard from Furtado, even though she has been releasing music (her 2012 album The Spirit Indestructible was a commercial flop almost everywhere).
Now, the singer is back, and this time, she’s doing things her way. Furtado’s sixth full-length The Ride comes out this Friday (March 31), and while its songs didn’t hit the charting highs she’s experienced before, the newly-independent pop star seems happier than ever, because she’s making the music she wants to make with the people she wants to work with and entirely on her own terms.
