Nelly Furtado Snags Salaam Remi For New LP

Published: Thursday 29th Dec 2011 by Sam

After a six year absence from the charts, naturally there’d be air of nerves surrounding Nelly Furtado‘s new project. So, in order to put her best foot forward, the 32 year old has enlisted an all-star cast of hitmakers to craft hits for the set.

Soulful producer Salaam Remi is the latest to join the line-up, which currently includes Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins and Timbaland.

Due next year, Furtado has revealed that ‘T.S.I’ are the initials for the set, which serves as the the follow-up to 2006’s super successful ‘Loose’.

With Remi being the brainchild behind by the likes of Amy Winehouse and Nas, this is most certainly an exciting union.

    Timbaland, Darkchild, and Salaam Remi is a great trio of pro…ducers for her.

    I say Timbo gets about 5-8 tracks, Darkchild about 3-5, and Remi 3-4. Of course depending on how many tracks are on the album.

    I didn’t care about this LP before, but this lineup is good, she is getting a very interesting and exclusive mix, this album should be hot!

    I’m so excited for her comeback…I’ve been waiting for a long time.Her collaborators are great and Salaam Remi can bring that old school sound like no other!!He could do for her what DJ Premier did for Christina Aguilera 😉 Nelly’s voice and overall personna and urban music are a great combination 😛 I can’t wait for her album to drop.

    Salaam does most of jazmine sullivan’s music, them two together is amazing. As long as timbaland is involved, nelly is good.
