New Nelly Furtado?

I just heard a snippit of the new Nelly Furtado song 'Maneater'. It's not a cover of the old (Hall & Oates?) song and it sounds fantastic. Apparently there is a radio embargo of teh track here in Australia until Feb 27 - so who has heard the whole thing? Who has it? Where is it? And isn't Nelly just damn fine?

'Folklore' was one of the most overlooked albums ever IMO. 'Try', 'Powerless', 'Forca', 'One Trick Pony' and 'The Grass Is Greener' are amazing, amazing tracks.

So - what do you think of Ms Furtado?

Yeah, I kind agree... Folklore is a bit bubblegum-pop album but it is has a great concept and well conceived. It reminds me my country a bit (Nelly has got portuguese parents or grandparents, whatever...) because of the musical influences, that has cavaquinho and sometimes parts of tradicional music from the portuguese people. I like it and it's overated.

I think she looks good, but she's too bubble-gummy for me to actually buy her albums

The new single sounds too...hip-hop-y to me. She's good at singing pop songs. She should stay away from the hip-hop influence.

she was on a tv show called ' The new paul o grady show ' on thursday, paul asked her what was her favourite venue she has played at and she said slane castle opening for u2 and how she grew up listening to u2.

anyway she played maneater and it was great , im glad she played with a live band.

I actually like "Promiscuous", I think its got a great rhythm to it. But I kinda feel like Nelly Furtado has sold out, but then again the song sounds cool

I'm not mad on what I've heard from the new album. I agree with the above comments about her first album, though. I still enjoy that CD very much.
