From The Vault: Nelly Furtado – ‘Promiscuous’

The year 2006 saw Nelly Furtado leave one-hit-wonder territory and enter superstardom. Inde

ed, with a string of hits each hotter than the previous, the ‘I’m Like A Bird’ singer established herself as a chart force scoring #1s after #1s. The unapologetic ‘Promiscuous’ serves as this week From The Vault pick.

 

Helmed by then “it producer” Timbaland, the tune saw Nelly and Timbo (featured here as a rapper/singer) trading flirtatious lines on a seductive beat. The  songbird exudes confidence and sensuality with her laid-back delivery, while Mr. Mosley is surprisingly pleasing with the “singing thing”.
A global home run, ‘Promiscuous’ reached the top spot of the charts in the US and Nelly’s homeland of Canada, and was a Top
3 single in the UK and Australia. It peaked inside the Top 20 in most of the other countries it was released in.
The Little X directed music video, which famously features cameos by Justin Timberlake and then-newbie Keri Hilson, sees Furtado interacting playfully and features an army dancers grooving at a club. By no means original, yet a visually delicious take
on a well-treaded concept. (Sidenote: just imagine what a Janet, Ciara or old-Britney would have done with that ending breakdown!) 
Fans of the Canadian diva no doubt look back at the ‘Loose’ days as a golden era, for Nelly’s latest ventures can’t seem to match past achievements. And that’s putting it lightly.
With her latest effort, ‘The Spirit Indestructible’, selling 5,700 copies first week in the US while debuting at #79, the days of Top Shot Debut albums and consecutive #1 singles seem to be long gone.
And while we firmly believe it’s a case of being “gone for too long” and serving up wack material upon your return, we want to hear what YOU think:

What went wrong with Nelly Furtado’s career?

Hot Shots: Rihanna Causes A Scene At JFK

Let’s just face it, despite being a little ‘absent’ on a talent tip, very few stars come any bigger than Rihanna.

So it should come as little surprise to anyone that walking through an airport has become somewhat of an event for the ‘Diamonds’ star.

Last night, before catching a flight out of New York’s JFK, it was business as usual for the singer as she casually strolled through the spot, despite being swarmed by fans who’d spotted her minutes before.

All this, hours after she arrived at the city’s Chelsea Pier  sans the insanity, and one night after partying at the opening of Jay Z’s Barclays Centre ’40/40′ club.

Peep her at the Piers below…
