Nelly Furtado - Mi PlanShe’s like a bird, flying from folk to funk and pop to hip-hop. Being of Portuguese heritage, Canada’s Nelly is also multilingual. Here, the Grammy and Juno winner delivers her first Hispanic album, teaming up with Spanish hip-hop artist La Mala Rodríguez and Dominican legend Juan Luis Guerra. The Maneater’s most famous guest is classical-pop crooner Josh Groban, who duets on the emotive ballad “Silencio.” And rising Cuban-Canadian star Alex Cuba lends the entire album a convincing Latin tinge.
