THE BEST OF NELLY FURTADO
ACCLAIMED SINGER-SONGWRITER'S FIRST RETROSPECTIVE, FEATURES ALL HER HITS PLUS FAN FAVORITES AND THREE NEW SONGS, INCLUDING "NIGHT IS YOUNG"
Multi-platinum-selling, Grammy-winning global superstar, actress, philanthropist and recent Canadian "Walk of Fame" inductee, Nelly Furtado, will celebrate her first 10 years of recording with her first greatest hits compilation, The Best Of Nelly Furtado (GeffenRecords). The album features #1 Pop smashes, collaborations and three previously unreleased recordings and will be available in standard and double-disc deluxe editions.
Of the previously unreleased recordings, "Night Is Young," the album's first single, was coproduced by Salaam Remi (Nas, The Fugees, Amy Winehouse) and Staybent Krunk-ADelic, and co-written by Nelly Furtado. Producer Remi and Furtado also co-wrote "Girlfriend" while "Stars," was produced by Lester Mendez who co-wrote the track with Furtado.
The Best Of Nelly Furtado looks back at a simply sensational and genuinely global first decade for the acclaimed Canadian-born singer-songwriter of Portuguese heritage. She has won and/or been nominated for seven Grammy awards, has a BRIT Award win, and has been awarded numerous Junos (Canada's equivalent of the Grammy), including Album Of The Yearfor Loose as well as an MTV Europe Music Award. Furthermore, she has been nominated for a handful of Billboard Latin Music Awards and a Grammy for her groundbreaking 2009 album Mi Plan that further solidifies her vibrant and successful career as a dual language superstar.Embracing different cultures, musical styles and even languages, Nelly Furtado has helped define musical diversity for a new generation.
Nelly's eclectic 2000 double platinum debut Whoa, Nelly! which spawned "I'm Like A Bird" was followed by the gold 2003 Folklore, whose "Forca" became the official anthem of the 2004 European Cup Football Championship. 2006's double platinum, #1-debuting Loose spotlighted the platinum, Grammy-nominated "Promiscuous" along with the hits "Say It Right" and"Maneater." Loose has been certified platinum in 32 countries and sold nearly 10 million copies worldwide and won the 2007 Brit Award for the International Female Solo Artist. In 2009, Mi Plan, her first album entirely in Spanish, made history when the single "Manos al Aire" soared to#1 on Billboard's "Hot Latin Songs" chart, marking it the highest debut of 2009 for Latin Pop album and the first time a North American artist had reached the top spot with a song originally written in Spanish. The album went on to be a #1 hit on Billboard's "Top Latin Album," as well as iTunes and Amazon Latin music charts. In 2010, Nelly joined producer Bob Ezrin and Young Artists For Haiti in singing K'NAAN's "Wavin' Flag" where all proceeds go to Free The Children,War Child Canada and World Vision Canada.
Furtado's highly anticipated fifth original album will be released in 2011.
