Nelly Furtado

She seems to be doing a lot of festivals, which are very random. Have you seen the lineup of that french one in Lyon?

Anyway, is there any new music coming? I really hope there is.
 
I love that she’s building up a public profile for herself again. And she is looking amazing.

I’m guessing there is new music coming as she has been in the studio.
If she is considering coming back she really has to do this to remind people of her existence. Basically what the Sugababes did, they are still paving the way for a proper comeback. I know it’s a bit different but this kind of groundwork is necessary for acts that didn’t had a hit (or good album) since ages.

The Tik Tok generation know who she is, Promiscuous, Say It Right are massive tik tok hits even Maneater… Also Drake brought her on stage to sing I’m Like a Bird a couple of months back.

I think depending on what sound she comes back with she could have an era the size of what should’ve came after Loose.

Do they really? I mean how many of the people who used her tracks actually know what a Nelly Furtado is and what it looks like? Also I wouldn’t overrate someone like Drake bringing out what’s basically a has-been to generation TikTok. None of them would buy an album or ticket because they danced 20 seconds to Say It Right, it’s just not realistic.

I mean I love her and want you to be right, but it just doesn’t equal success beyond a cute trend. With the right track and a great portion of luck maybe she can do something. Here’s hoping.
 
Loose was such a commercial grab bag but I still think some of the album tracks are so stunning. Particularly Afraid, which really nails that moody gothic 80's Eurythmics vibe Nelly herself mentioned as inspo. That vocal trick where her voice is modulated and repeated just before the second chorus is such a moment.

You'd be surprised. Wasn't this an issue with Mitski fans because one of her songs went viral and nobody at the shows knew the words to her other songs because they obviously came on board because of the trend, specifically so they could film seeing the song live? That doesn't mean Nelly Furtado will be selling out arenas anytime soon, but I wouldn't doubt the power of TikTok and social media clout at all.

I need her to at least give us a feature on someone else's track this year - she seems to be really gearing up for a comeback.
 
Yeah, I think it would be worth her trying to build her musical profile up a bit more before launching anything herself, so a few features would be cool.
