Hot Shots: Nelly Furtado Ups Her Diva For Esquire

Cop a gander of Nelly Furtado.

The ‘Big Hoops’ singer strikes many a fierce pose in the latest issue of UK magazine, Esquire. Needless to say, whoa Nelly. She looks hot tamale.

For her sake, her comeback album ‘The Spirit Indestructible’ needs to be just as blazing when it arrives on September 11th. Three singles in, the set is yet to spawn a hit. Yet, as time has shown, a hit album isn’t always preceded by hit singles.

Rihanna Spends Night With Rita Ora’s Rob Kardashian

For, while his ‘wife’  Rita Ora entertained fans at London’s ‘G-A-Y‘, the Reality TV royal spent the night with her ROC sister Rihanna.

Yes, two nights before the release of the singer’s debut album ‘ORA‘, Rob and Rihanna hit Racer’s Edge Indoor Karting in Burbank, California, snapped enjoying each other’s company during a go-kart race.

A race, in which the ‘That La La La’ singer won before the pair hit the Playhouse nightclub in Hollywood.

From The Vault: Shakira – ‘Whenever, Wherever’

This week’s From The Vault serves up yet another classic: Shakira‘s first mainstream effort, ‘Whenever, Wherever’.

Serving as the launch single from her premier English language LP ‘Laundry Service’, the track was the first of many blockbuster hits for the Latin stunner.

‘Whenever’, produced by the singer herself and written by her too (alongside Gloria Estefan and Tim Mitchell), was a global phenomenon; smashing world charts starting Fall 2001 until the middle of the subsequent year. It peaked at #6 on the US Hot 100, #2 in the UK, #4 in Canada and reached the top spot in almost every other market it has been released in including France, Australia and her homeland of Columbia.

Unless one had been living under a rock for the entirety of the last decade, they would obviously be ofey  with the single’s accompanying visual, which would best be described as ‘stellar’. Choreographed by dance legend Tina Landon and directed by video-maven Francis Lawrence, the clip was a more than effective introduction to the singer for the world (bar Latin America that is), showcasing an original, stunning, confident and most-importantly seasoned performer. Whether grooving on top of a rock, walking in the desert or belly-dancing in the mud, the video is a highly entertaining one-woman-show thanks to the ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ singer’s energy and agility.

***********

Shakira-shakira’s last English album, ‘She Wolf’,’ didn’t exactly set the charts ablaze; yet with another on the horizon (backed by Roc Nation), all eyes will be on the 35 year old to see if she can still deliver the goods. In order to do so, she has collaborated with many a chart topper and it-producer. We firmly hope she keeps somewhat of a Latin/ethnic element to her music though. Because, as evidenced with acts such as Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez as well as her own recent hits ‘Waka Waka’ and ‘Loca’, it is it pays -quite literally- to have flavour-filled point of difference.

Pink Addresses US ‘Popularity Contest’

Rising to fame at the turn of the millennium as the poster child for Urban Pop, P!nk surprised many a critic when she made the transition from Pop Princess to Pop Rock riot.

Despite enjoying her first US #1 with ‘Lady Marmalade‘ in 2001, the singer- believe it or not- was unable to match the feat until seven years later with ‘So What’.

Now she has addressed her popularity- or lack of it- in the United States and how touring served to counteract any commercial shortcomings she faced in the market.
