Nelly Furtado - The Best of Nelly Furtado

Has it really been a decade since Furtado’s “I’m Like a Bird”? This collection shows how far the Canadian songstress has come, from her Grammy-winning pop debut Whoa, Nelly and its sultry worldbeat followup Folklore to her chart-topping smash Loose and the all-Spanish Mi Plan. Never afraid to showcase her Portuguese heritage, Furtado remains one of pop’s true trailblazers, mixing Latin influences like fado and bossa nova. Includes such catchy new songs as the folky “Stars” and the darker pop of “Girlfriend in the City.”
