iTunes Review

One of the most impressive debut albums of the new millennium, 2000’s Whoa, Nelly! effortlessly transcended musical genres as it introduced an artist of exceptional promise. Nelly Furtado makes it all look easy, pouring sophisticated street poetry into a savory stew of folk, hip-hop, Latin and pop influences with a confidence that belies her 21 years. Challenging expectations on track after track, she saunters through arrangements blending gentle acoustic guitar, rippling percussion and steamy urban beats with a brash and winning flair. Whether her supple vocals convey waif-like dreaminess or inviting sensuality, she avoids diva-like poses in favor of an earthy, open-hearted persona. The tunes flow seamlessly from start to finish, with highlights including the string-draped “Hey, Man,” the bossa nova-driven “Legend” and the brass-accented “Baby Girl”.” Those with a taste for melodic pop will find “Well, Well” and “I’m Like A Bird” irresistible, and Furtado’s Portuguese heritage is invoked in the passionate fado ballad “Scared Of You.” Amidst all these spacey pastiches and playful sonic maneuvers, the clear-eyed intelligence and genuine warmth of this exceptional singer/songwriter shines consistently through. Whoa, Nelly! is the work of an unstoppable talent.

When Nelly Furtado appeared with her neo-hippie, multiculti debut Whoa, Nelly! in 2001, a dance-diva makeover seemed like an impossibility, but the singer/songwriter revived and sustained her career with the sexually charged Loose in 2006, in the process consolidating her position as one of the most unpredictable artists of her decade. Furtado always proudly displayed her Portuguese heritage, a distinction that separated her from legions of emerging female singer/songwriters in the early days of...
