Who is she?
Nelly Furtado is a Canadian who first gained fame with her trip hop inspired debut album, Whoa, Nelly! (2000), which was a critical and commercial success that spawned two top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100, “I’m Like a Bird” and “Turn Off the Light”. The first of the two singles won her a Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Furtado’s introspective folk-heavy 2003 second album, Folklore, explored her Portuguese roots. Its singles received moderate success in Europe, but the album’s underperformance compared to her debut was regarded as a sophomore slump.
Furtado’s third album, Loose (2006), was a smash hit and became her best selling album with more than 12 million copies sold worldwide, also making it one of the best selling albums of the 2000s.Considered a radical image reinvention, Furtado continued to explore her Latin heritage while leaning heavier into hip hop. wiki
