At the time, Furtado was riding high on Timberland-assisted bangers like 'Promiscuous' and 'Maneater', and, along with Justin Timberlake, she crafted a sound that would permeate pop music for years to come.

However, Loose was somewhat of an anomaly for Nelly. Launching her career proper in 2000 with the Grammy-winning single 'I'm Like a Bird', Furtado was more closely aligned to folk music. While tracks like 'Turn Off the Light' and 'Shit On the Radio' flirted with electronics, they did so with more of a nod to William Orbit than the synth-heavy R&B that would populate Loose.

At the time, the album was met with praise for its adventurous approach to pop music, blending sonic influences from different cultures and, as one reviewer in Rolling Stone said, it was "wild-ass pop go-go, filled with songs that pursue adventure yet could still make the hit parades". Indeed, the album was particularly popular with British listeners, and has since sold over 600,000 copies in the UK alone.

Releasing her second album, Folklore , in 2003, Nelly Furtado's blend of organic and digital sounds had settled closer on the realistic side. The album was noted for its introspective lyrics, live instrumentation and rockier soundscape, something the singer put down to being influenced by her parents' immigration to Canada from the Azores in the 1960s.

"When I look at my old photo albums, I see pictures of their brand-new house, their shiny new car, their first experiences going to very North American-type places like Kmart," she told Interview Magazine . "When you have that in your blood, you never really part with it – it becomes your own personal folklore." In fact, Furtado explained, it was her pregnancy that was a "big part of why the album is so mellow".

"As we started working, I began falling in love with all these stringed instruments - the banjo, the Portuguese ukulele, and the dulcimer, all of which are on this record," she said. "And we focused a little more on the songwriting than on frenetically switching genres five times in one song, the way we did on the last record."

Expanding on this, she explained that the idea was to take the organic nature of a voice and guitar or a person singing on the street and "take that essence and make a folk record for 2003, using new sounds and taking advantage of all the technology we have at our disposal. The idea of folk is there, but it's my version of a folk record. It still bounces."

The album didn't quite reach the lofty heights of the debut, but was far from a flop. However, the sonic experimentation that Furtado was fond of would become more integral as she progressed through her career, and nowhere more so than on 2006's Loose .

I wanted to prove to myself that I could be more streamlined,'" Furtado told The Fader this year, revealing that she'd used Madonna's Ray of Light as a template for the album.

Jimmy Iovine from Interscope suggested that Nelly jump in the studio with Timberland, so she travelled down to Florida to begin work on the album at The Hit Factory.

"I think we recorded the entire album in, like, maximum six weeks — with touch-ups after, mixing over that Christmas," she said. "It was a super-inspired time, and it was a cool time for Timbaland too because he was about to get in the studio with Justin Timberlake to record FutureSex/LoveSounds in Virginia. Loose kind of dovetailed into that record, in terms of the vibe."

The album presented a new, sleeker version of Nelly Furtado, one who wasn't afraid to exhibit and play with sexuality while applying layers of glossy pop music. However, among songs like 'Say It Right' and 'All Good Things', co-written by Coldplay's Chris Martin, the singer retained that lyrical and emotive musical flair.

Advertisement - Continue Reading Below Loose would go on to become Nelly Furtado's biggest-selling album to date, and has so far sold over 12 million copies worldwide. "Over time, I've come to realise how special Loose is to a lot of people," she told The Fader . "It's good to be proud of what you do, and I think Tim and I really did create something new. I'm proud we were able to celebrate our chemistry on such a large level. I'm happy people like seeing us together."

Yet, these comments come in retrospect. As is often the case, Timberland and Furtado fell out after the release of the album over legal issues and because Timberland didn't believe that Furtado was "grateful" enough.

While they've since made up, it's perhaps this rift that caused what happened next.

Furtado's fourth album Mi Plan , a Spanish language album, was a success (the collection won the Latin Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal Album ) but she wouldn't release her fifth album The Spirit Indestructible until 2012.

Recording for the album began in 2009 while the singer was working with Salaam Remi (Amy Winehouse, Nas). Perhaps in a bid to re-create the magic of working mainly with one producer, however, Furtado sought out Rodney 'Darkchild' Jerkins.

©   Elsa/Getty Images Speaking to Popjustice , Furtado told how she felt a bit creatively spent following Loose and was waiting for inspiration. "That's why working with Rodney was exciting," she said. "I met him and I think we wrote 'The Spirit Indestructible', the title track, on the first day. We'd done this creative, intimate thing together and when I went home that day I almost felt dirty – like, 'oh should I call you or should you call me?'

"It's really fun for me. Collaborating can be really exhilarating. I kind of went back to that childlike place in my mind on this album," she finished.

The Spirit Indestructible drew on the reflective moments from Folklore and the strong R&B beats of Loose , and exhibited that eclectic nature expressed on Woah Nelly! . "I am a chameleon. I do gravitate toward things that I like and that I find popular and cool, and I do have a way of blending in," she told Outlook Columbus in 2012. "I've always been that way, though. I was the kid in school that dressed like a hippie one day, then a rapper the next day and then prep the next day. That's just who I am."

Upsettingly for Nelly Furtado, the bid to re-create the success of Loose wasn't to be realised. In fact, The Spirit Indestructible charted outside the top 40 in the UK and at number 79 on the Billboard 200 chart.

"I've had kind of everything happen to me commercially and at different levels," Furtado told The Huffington Post in 2012. "I've had different scenes and I've dabbled in a lot of markets so I see the music world as very global and I'm always looking for new avenues and opportunities, so one chart or anything doesn't necessarily [mean anything.]"

Continuing, she added: "I'm so proud of it creatively. I've gotten feedback that it's a very liberating album to listen to and for me it was liberating to create it. Luckily, I have had a lot of ups and downs in my career on a commercial level, so I'm very bulletproof in that way."

What happened next? Well, between 2013 and 2015, Nelly was fairly dormant. Yet, in 2014 rumours were floating that she was in the studio with UK producer Duke Dumont. Then, at the tail end of last year, the singer joined producer and artist Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange) on stage at a charity show at Harlem's Academy Theatre. The pair performed the track 'Hadron Collider' and 'Say It Right', the former of which they released on a limited-edition cassette tape.

The track later emerged online in 2016, and would feature on Blood Orange's album Freetown Sound . However, that was just the beginning of Nelly Furtado's re-emergence into the spotlight.

"I love Dev. He's the realest. I've learned a lot from him. To me — and I've never told him this — he's almost been a mentor without knowing it," she told i-D . "I met him through David Byrne because we did the Color Guard project together. In Toronto one night [on the tour for Color Guard], Dev and I got in the studio and wrote 'Hadron Collider'."

The singer then shared an acoustic cover of Calvin Harris' 'Feels So Close' in June (she had previously performed a version of the song back in 2012), following this up with the retro-R&B track 'Behind Your Back' in July. Along with that song came news that an album, The Ride , was to follow.

Dropping another track, the bouncy and electronic 'Islands of Me', Nelly Furtado later announced the release date of her new album along with the collection's lead single, the organ-filled and tender 'Pipe Dreams'.

"I would call the sound of the [ The Ride ] modern pop-alternative," Furtado said while revealing the collection had been produced by long-time St. Vincent collaborator John Congleton. "I write pop melodies; I've always written pop melodies. But John forces me to dig a little deeper and make sure that I'm coming correct with the lyrics. I was also in a really cool phase in my life where I was going through a difficult time of transition and that helped lyrically."

"I just had so much to write about," she continued. "I think I grew as a songwriter on this album."

This growth, she explains, was due to her taking a moment to step back and focusing on everyday things. "I started doing a lot of things I always wanted to do - like sewing, ceramic and playwriting classes. I guess I was trying to distil my life a little bit," she said. "I was living in fast forward since I was 19. Through unstrapping and layering down and simplifying my life, I found joy again in art."

So, when can you expect a new album from Nelly Furtado? Well, if all goes to plan then The Ride should find its way into the world on March 31, 2017 . Exciting stuff, eh?

Hide Caption 28 of 28 Story highlights The new song and video dropped Friday Video features his "Trolls" costars (CNN) If Friday had a sound, it would be Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop the Feeling."

So it makes sense that the singer would drop his new song and video on that day. Already it's being bandied about as the possible song of the summer. "Can't Stop the Feeling" mixes business with Timberlake's business pleasure as it's not only his new single, but also featured on the soundtrack of the animated movie "Trolls," in which he voices the character Branch. So it made sense for the singer to get a little help from his costars James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Gwen Stefani, Kunal Nayyar, Ron Funches -- as well as Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo of Icona Pop for the music video. In it, the group can be seen getting a first listen to the song in various locations as they dance and sing along. Read More Fans have been eagerly awaiting new music from Timberlake, whose last project was the second half of his "The 20/20 Experience" in 2013. He had earlier teased the release on social media with #CantStopTheFeeling. On Friday, Twitter lit up with reviews, calling the new tune everything from "infectious" to the "ultimate soul train line song." #CantStopTheFeeling is so infectious!!! Definitely going to be the summer song for many.

P!nk & Justin Timberlake Set To Release New Albums This Year 819 SHARES Share Tweet Subscribe Published: Friday 24th Feb 2017 by Nehemiah It’s safe to say P!nk and Justin Timberlake have earned their spots as two of modern Pop’s leading acts.

The powerful pair have sold over 45 million records each over the span of their solo careers. And now, that number will increase as they lock-in 2017 for their perspective album releases.

Full story below…

After the gigantic success of 2016’s ‘ Just Like Fire, ‘ P!nk seemed poised to issue an LP in the latter part of last year. But the project was quietly put on the back burner after the star announced that she was expecting her second child – a month before giving birth.

Her last album, 2012’s ‘ The Truth About Love, ‘ serves as the second biggest record of her career, selling over 7 million copies. So it’s safe to say the aforementioned has high expectations.

The singer’s RCA/Sony label-mate JT is also brewing fresh material.

Following his Academy Award nominated single ‘ Can’t Stop the Feeling ,’ Timberlake has been hard at work in studio with past collaborators Pharrell and Timberland trying to perfect his spin on the southern sound.

In a recent interview with THR , he says of the project:

“It sounds more like where I’ve come from than any other music I’ve ever made. It’s Memphis. It’s Southern American music. But I want to make it sound modern — at least that’s the idea right now.”

************

Both albums sound promising. It’ll be interesting to see when they drop and who they’ll be up against. Not to mention, Timberlake’s new southern sound – which itself sounds like a marked departure from the music he’s been delivering over the decades.
