Personalities | Nelly Furtado | Twenty-First Century | Rock

(Vocals, b. 1978)

Portuguese/Canadian singer Furtado is a shining exponent of feelgood modern pop. After a musical youth spent with DJs and rappers instead of musicians per se, her debut album from 2000, Whoa, Nelly!, accordingly fused the more palatable ingredients of music of the streets with an upbeat pop approach that garnered success for singles like ‘I’m Like A Bird’. Later albums, Folklore (2003) and Loose (2006), the latter including the UK chart-topping ‘Maneater’, have seen Furtado further explore the fruits of cross-genre pollination.
