Rewind: Nelly Furtado & Timbaland

Arjanwrites_nelly_timbaland

Nelly Furtado's forthcoming album "Loose" will feature an edgier urban sound compared to the pop-styled productions she has put out so far. Furtado is excited about showing off a different side of herself to people. She told told me last week that she grew up listening to hip hop and rap music from artists like LL Cool J and Ice T., and that she always wanted to tap into that raw energy for her own music. "This new album is like a throw back album for me," she tells me.  After experimenting with Scott Storch and Nellee Hooper in the studio, her label suggested to team up with hip hop prodigy Timbaland for "Loose." The two had worked previously on the remix of Furtado's "Turn Off The Light," which became a huge smash on the hip hop charts a few years back. After not having seen each other for four years, Furtado traveled to Miami to start working with Timbaland. Furtado describes the instant musical chemistry between them as  "voodoo energy." Check out the first successful teaming between Furtado and Timbaland that features plenty of voodoo-ish energy (and mudslinging!). [source]
