Nelly Furtado - Loose (10 Years Anniversary)

After the failure of her second album, Folklore, an adventurous-if-sappy globo-handjob, Furtado's been paired with rhythmic savant Timbaland and his protégé Danja Handz for all but two songs on Loose. And they've already provided international hits with "Promiscuous" and "Maneater", two doses of buzzbeater bass and clomping hi-hats right out of Tim's standard playbook. The songs fit snugly into Tim's oeuvre, but not Furtado's, who's best known for "I'm Like a Bird" and the manic Tim-produced remix of Missy Elliott's "Get Ur Freak On". They sound unlike Furtado not because they're danceable or sexy-- her first two albums were those things-- but because they're about dancing and fucking. 


Promiscuous The song's lyrics, which were penned by Furtado and Attitude, feature a conversation between a man and woman who call each other promiscuous. The overtly-sexual song was released as the lead single from the album in North America in early 2006, and as the second single elsewhere in mid-2006 except in Latin America, where the single was released as the third single in late 2006.
The song was well received by music critics, with some critics calling it the highlight of the album. "Promiscuous" was an international success and it had become Furtado's first number-one single in the US. It is the first number one by a Canadian female artist since 1998's "I'm Your Angel" by R. Kelly and Céline Dion on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song also topped the chart in New Zealand and peaked within the top ten on many charts across Europe.
The accompanying music video was directed by Little X, and features scenes of Furtado and Timbaland, in what Furtado describes as a "verbal Ping-Pong game". Cameo appearances are made by Keri HilsonJustin Timberlake
The song won the "Best Pop Single of the Year" at the 2006 Billboard Music Awards and received a nomination for the "Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals" at the 49th Grammy Awards

Maneater The song was written by Furtado,Tim Mosley, Nate "Danja" Hills, and Jim Beanz, and released to mainstream radio in the United States in September 2006. The song's musical style and production were inspired by pop arrangements from the 1980s by bands such as Eurythmics and Hall & Oates. Furtado stated that Hall & Oates' song of the same name was an influence during the writing and recording of the song.
The song received positive reviews from music critics, most of them comparing the song to Madonna and Depeche Mode songs from the 1980s. Outside North America, "Maneater" became one of Furtado's most popular singles, topping the charts in the United Kingdom and peaking within the top ten of the charts across much of Europe and Australia. It became a club hit in North America but was less commercially successful than the lead single "Promiscuous".
The accompanying music video was filmed by American director Anthony Mandler in Los Angeles. The video premiered on Yahoo! Music on 6 September, and was given a "First Look" on MTV's Total Request Live on 8 September. The song was included on thesetlist for Furtado's third tour Get Loose Tour.


Say It Right is a song by Canadian singer Nelly Furtado from her third studio album Loose (2006). Written by Furtado, Tim Mosley and Nate "Danja" Hills, the song was inspired by, as Furtado described it, the "spooky, keyboard-driven pop sound" of the band Eurythmics, specifically their 1983 song titled, "Here Comes the Rain Again". The song released as the album's third singlein North America and Australia (see 2006 in music). The song served as the album's fourth single in certain European and Asian countries. It was released digitally in the United Kingdom in March 2007. It was the album's fifth single in Latin America.
"Say It Right" attained worldwide success, topping the charts in more than seven countries, including the United States, France, New Zealand and many European countries. The accompanying music video for the song, directed by Rankin & Chris, portrays Furtado singing in various costumes and in various locations. The song has been performed on a number of live appearances by Furtado, including her third headlining Get Loose Tour.
It received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 2008 Grammy Awards but lost to Amy Winehouse's "Rehab".
"All Good Things (Come to an End)" iIt was written by Furtado, Tim  MosleyChris Martin, and Nate "Danja" Hills. The song was released as the album's third European single in November 2006. It was released as the fourth single in the United States and Australia. The single featured Chris Martin, frontman of the band Coldplay, harmonizing throughout the song. The original version had him say a few words at the beginning, and sing the chorus behind Furtado. Critically, "All Good Things (Come to an End)" was praised for having diversity in comparison to other songs on Loose, but at the same time criticized for its mellowness. Commercially, the song did well on the music charts, reaching number-one in more than fifteen countries including AustriaCzech RepublicDenmarkGermany and the Netherlands.



"Do It" It was written by Furtado, Tim Mosley and Danja and produced by the former pair and Jim Beanz. The song features a prominent influence of 1980s dance-pop music and sexually suggestive lyrics, in which the song's protagonist asks a lover to satisfy her sexually. Alongside a remix featuring American rapper Missy Elliott, the song was released as the fifth single from the album in North America in July 2007.
The single received mixed reviews from critics, with many criticizing the sexually suggestive lyrics. Commercially, "Do It" reached the top twenty in Canada and was a number-one club hit in the United States, where it became Furtado's lowest peaking single on theBillboard Hot 100; it reached higher positions on charts on mainland Europe.
The music video for "Do It" was directed by Aaron A. (the documentarian on Furtado's Get Loose Tour), and co-directed by Furtado. The filming had taken place on location in Detroit. The video was premiered on MuchMusic on 13 July 2007,and on MTV's Total Request Live on 1 August 2007.
In January 2007, it was revealed that Timbaland plagiarized the synth line in "Do It" from an earlier track by Finnish demoscener Janne Suni and Glenn Rune Gallefoss.




The album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart, making it Furtado's first album to top the chart with first-week sales of 219,000; it was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and ranked sixty-fourth on the Billboard 2006 year-end chart. Loose exited the US top ten in August 2006 but re-entered it in March 2007, and according to Nielsen SoundScan in October 2007, it had sold two million units. The album ranked thirty-second on the Billboard 2007 year-end chart.



In the United Kingdom, Loose entered the albums chart at number five; in its forty-third week, it reached 
number four, and it was certified double platinum for shipments to retailers of more than 600,000 copies.As of July 2007, it had sold roughly 827,000 copies in the UK. The record was certified two times platinum in Australia for more than 140,000 units shipped
