I'm not sure I like her new direction though. It seems e's gone hip hop. I like the Spanish/Portuguese/Brazilian/Pop thing she had goin. And yeah, she's hot.

Heard the new song the other day, I liked it.

Timbaland can't fail.

Too true.

I caught myself singing (loudly) "Promiscuous Girl" the other day as I walked into the lockerroom at the YMCA.

Next week - "Its raining men.."

I was wondering, have more people heard the new album, and what is your impression of it?


(and yeah, she's definitely growing hotter),

I can't disagree with her growing hotness or her musical expression of that but it is in all seriousness it's kind of sad to see a talented artist give in to whore-pop. I just want to say I love that term.
Women shouldn't have to be ultra-sexual for the sake of selling records. I think Fiona Apple might have a word or two on this subject. Speaking of which, look at Fiona Apple and Dido who don't use sexual tactics to sell albums.

I think it's more of a reaction to the fact that her second album didn't sell well, didn't have any big singles, and that she had a kid. Seems like a planned "change" to get herself popular again and/or validate her own ability to sell records and still be considered attractive after becoming a mother.

In related news, Timbaland still rules at producing.

I haven't dug into the new stuff quite yet as I recently got Woah Nelly!, which is just excellent through-and through.

I can't speak enough for the production, whether it's the bombastic Hey Man! with soaring vocals over string samples, the smooth and slick Shit on the Radio, or the masterpiece that is Turn off the Light.

Turn off the Light has one of the coolest intros ever, and to transition that into the laid back first verse is just magical stuff. Puts you in a completely different place.

You know, she's always been a fan of pop music, and I don't believe this is a sellout in the slightest. It's not like she was Jewel before or something. There are tracks on Whoa Nelly that are closer to this vein, like the ones Canadiens1160 mentioned above. And who the hell WOULDN'T want to work with Timbaland?

Anyway, screw Gnarls Barkley's Crazy, because I think Promiscuous is the song of the summer. I said that when I DLed the leaked album back in April, and I still feel that way.

Solid album with surprisingly little filler.

Hot women who also happen to be great musicians are triple hot.

She's got quite the Blue Steel look going on there doesn't she. Meh, I don't think she's very attractive. She's got a nice bum, but I wouldn't really like to make out with Ben Stiller thank you very much.
