Nelly Furtado Cuts Loose


Timbaland, Pharrell, Scott Storch lend beats to Canadian crooner's latest


"The first day we were jamming, the speaker actually caught fire -- seriously," says Canadian songbird Nelly Furtado, who jetted down to Miami to record Loose, the follow-up to 2003's Folklore, with hip-hop hitmaker Timbaland.


Timbo, who ended up producing more than half of the record's fourteen tracks, is just one of several stars Furtado recruited for the disc (due this spring), a group that also includes Pharrell Williams, Scott Storch and Shakira producer Lester Mendez, who worked on the Spanish-language reggaeton-style "No Hay Igual."


Coldplay frontman Chris Martin stopped by the studio in August when he was in town for MTV's Video Music Awards to add vocals to "All Good Things Come to an End." "He loves Timbaland, and Timbaland loves Coldplay," says Furtado. "It was like a match made in heaven. The two of them just looked like two kids in a candy store."


The potential first single is "Promiscuous Girl," a club track with a Timbaland beat and Furtado flipping rhymes about celebrating your inner slut. "This phase in my life is all about feel," says Furtado, describing the song's sexy, slow-jam vibe. "I'm more in touch with my emotions and my body, so the music is really dance-oriented."


Furtado, who isn't currently in a relationship, attributes this newfound body-consciousness to her daughter, Nevis, who was born in 2003: "I think when you first become a mother, you reclaim your body a little bit."
