The Best of Nelly Furtado CD review and giveaway CLOSED

Best of Nelly Furtado
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 (Geffen Records).  The album, available today November 16th, 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 co-produced by Salaam Remi (Nas, The Fugees, Amy Winehouse) and Staybent Krunk-A-Delic, 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 Year for 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.

I have loved Nelly Furtado for awhile.  So when I was given the chance to review The Best of Nelly Furtado, I jumped at it. And I'm so glad I did.  My favorite thing about 'best of' or greatest hits albums is rediscovering old favorites (and this album is FULL of them) and finding new favorites. I'm still totally partial to I'm Like a Bird and Say It Right!  But the whole album is great.  It gets me singing and bopping along.  The only downside...getting caught singing along while I'm in the office.  No one wants to witness that, I promise.

Nelly Furtado’s latest hit single “Night Is Young” from her forthcoming greatest hits compilation has received the remix treatment.  “Night Is Young” - The Remixes, a new EP available today, features three new interpretations of the track, including a version by Manhattan Clique.
The Best of Nelly Furtado features Nelly’s #1 pop smashes from the past decade and three previously unreleased tracks. The album will be available on 11/16.
