Video Premiere: Nelly Furtado "Maneater"
At the risk of turning into a Nelly Furtado fan site, check out the video for Nelly's "Maneater" that is her new single in Europe. The bloggers are going nuts of this one. I think "Maneater" is a much fresher song than "Promiscuous" but Nelly told me last month that Geffen label head Jimmy Lovine preferred to go with "Promiscuous" because of Timbaland's hip hop cred in the States which would help radio play. Enjoy the "Maneater" video. The intro is hot. More exclusive Nelly Furtado stuff coming on Arjan Writes soon. [source]
glad to hear someone else thinks "maneater" is the fresher song, a. the musical arrangement blows the song up on this one! but it's hard to deny that timbaland charm. all i can say is these two along with "no hay igual" are making "loose" the most anticipated album of the summer, as far as i can tell!

my problem with Promiscuous is that it's almost more Timba (s'cuse me, Thomas Crown) than Nelly. It's a vanity project for him when I would rather hear HER. I hope there is a version with less of him.

Maneater is 1000 times more exciting than the last Nelly Furtardo track!!! The beats are awesome, the production hot, the vocal has more of that NF attitude:-)
Now I'm really lookin forward to hearing more...

Great song, but stinking lousy video!! Is there a story? :-( I'm hoping they just rushed it cuz the song is gonna be hot, and then take their time and produce another one. Love Nelly, but should minimize dancing as in Promiscuous. Maneater deserves a really hot video, and the one I saw just ain't it. The song is great.

The song is hot..no doubt. Love that Thomas Crown...man knows how to work it. Video needs to be redone...too stiff...no passion. Doesn't move me. Give me a call...I help you do a new one...

That video sucks big time! I cant stand it! You know why because everytime that I was listening to it that girl sounds like shes got a bug in her throat! And she sings horrible like shes mumbling in it!

Nelly Furtado just plain rocks!
BTW, I just found a neat Nelly site with all her story detailed. Lots of interesting and unrevealed things in there.
