    i love nelly and this song is pretty hot but i have to say that she doesn’t sound like herself. she had some rih rih vocal ticks in big hoops and here she DEF sounds like M.I.A.

    i’m conflicted.

      Her vocals reminded me of M.I.A too. I thought I was the only one who got that. I think it’s Darkchild’s fault tbh. The production never leaves any space for her to sing free with her natrual voice.

        me too, but remember Nelly’s always had that weird vocal style, however the verses seem to be consciousnesses tuned to sound like M.I.A. and her wannabe indie/hipster sounds

    It’s the catchiest one out of the singles she’s released so far, but it needs to be sped up. When she performed it live at AOL, it sounded much better and stronger. Now it sounds a little watered down. But I still want her to release this and if the rumours are anything to go by, she will 🙂 I hope it works for her, because she’s been quite overlooked this year…

    Love me some Darkchild. Love Nelly’s previous work. Yet… I’m just…. meh.

    I dunno, having trouble feeling this work… Took ages for ‘Big Hoops’ to grow on me, I don’t think I have the time for this to grow on me too!

    All of we, the fans of Nelly Furtado (Nelstars), think it’s a demo because the main vocals doesn’t sound so well, maybe it’s that or we’re just used to the AOL Sessions and live versions, that are better.

    I think Nelly and Darkchild are doing a good team, but it’s a team that nobody likes it much.

    • ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 18, 2012

      I think the bass overshadows her vocals, but other than that it sounds like a finished and mastered song. But I agree that Nelly always brings it in the live performances, so when we get the final versions, we get a little underwhelmed at first.

      As far as Darkchild goes, I think he’s good, but maybe Nelly should try to release a song that he hasn’t produced. If I’m not mistaken, ALL 3 singles so far have been produced by him. Maybe she sould give the Salaam Remi tracks or the Demolition Crew tracks a chance.

        @ASAP The song does not sound finished nor does it sound mastered. You want to criticize artists and then turn around and sugar coat your earlier sentiments.

        Nelly is talented but if all of her material has a similar sound and is failing to connect with the record/single buying audience then obviously there is a disconnect somewhere and changes need to be made.

        @HS Having a panic attack I see. I’m a Nelly fan in case you haven’t noticed and I don’t remember saying anything negative about her aside from the fact that I prefer her live performance to the studio version, which is actually a compliment…*sigh*

    It’s probably the catchiest song that she has released from the album so far. The radio edit does sound like an unfinished demo but I do like what it’s trying to do. However, her label obviously has no faith in this project and her promo in the U.S. has been minimal to none (outside of the Billboard Awards performance) so I don’t expect it to have much if any impact on the charts. Nelly is talented in her own way but talent isn’t always enough to save an album era when all of your material sounds repetitive and a tad bit dated. I still like her though (because of the perfection that was ‘Loose’) so hopefully something will turn around for her and this era in her music can come to a respectable close.

      who the f*** disliked this comment. HATING ASS STANS. GTFO

    I’m disappointed, I expected a huge comeback for Nelly.

    I don’t know what’s happening this era. But Darkchild is really messing with her come back. I dunno what he’s doing, or not doing to her voice, but this is MESSY…

    I don’t think that’s the final version. I’ll wait for the official version.

  9. OMG A SITE FULL OF C**** August 18, 2012

    Hey c****!!!! This is the radio edit version. Anyway!! I digress, nelly always sounded terrible but her voice just annoys the hell out of me. Oh, and @Honestly Speaking, Please put the shut to the up, but I agree with u somewhat.

  10. Lyo August 18, 2012

    Ehm… The track is okay…. I love Rodney ‘s work.. but I have heard better. This should be some unreleased s***.

  11. KING-BREEZYONCÉ August 18, 2012

    This s*** is f****** HOT !!!!

    She should have just worked with Timbaland again. It sounds like a rip off of his work, but fails to hit the mark.

    I liked it. This song would be huge between 2004 and 2006, but today it’s going to flop. I feel bad for Nelly, the market changed a lot since Loose came out. I like Darkchild’s work, but his songs are dated. He produced most of the songs on her album, she will have a big problem finding a hit single. Her last two singles (BH and SI) just charted on a few countries. The biggest markets turned their backs to her singles. Even Germany, which used to be her biggest market, didn’t support her this time. It shows that she’s definitely on the wrong way.
    Honestly, this urban sound won’t take her anywhere. She needs to go back to studio and record pop and pop-indie songs. Songs like Call Me Maybe, Firework, Lights, We Are Young, Somebody That I Used To Know would fit perfectly on her voice and style.
    If Beyoncé and Usher can’t make urban sound happen on POP radios, Nelly Furtado doesn’t even have a chance.
    I think we’re about to see the biggest failure on the pop scene since Bionic. : /

    This needs to be sent to radio ASAP. It has a lot of potential. Needs a HOT remix with a HOT rapper like Wiz Khalifa and sent to iTunes with a swagged out GHETTO video

  15. BARCELLY August 18, 2012

    Nelly’s back think this i the year good music returns! I think i might dust off my radio LOL

    Nowhere near as good as Big Hoops, this is an overproduced mess – then again its Darkchild isn’t it ;o)
