Nelly Furtado - Slew Of Collaborators Included On Nelly Furtado’s “Buffet Approach” To New Album ‘Loose’

Nelly Furtado has certainly dipped her toe in plenty of different styles during her time in the music industry, and it’s as much thanks to the people she’s opened up to and worked with as it is her own eclectic tastes as an artist. True to form, her fifth album The Spirit Indestructible looks like it’s going to mark another change in direction for the 33 year-old Canadian, featuring as it does Nas on one track among other collaborators.

Talking to MTV, Furtado praised her producer Salaam Remi for his involvement in the album and said it was him who passed on her track Something to the rapper. “He loved it” she said of Nas’ reaction, before enthusing “It wasn't until I was finally sending in my liner notes to the label and handing in my lyrics that I had to ask Salaam for Nas' rap... It's one thing listening to Nas rap, but then when you see his words on paper, you really see what a poet he is. And I'm happy he's on the album."

With Passion Pit front man Michael Angelakos also involved in the project among others, Furtado admitted that she takes what she describes as a “buffet approach” to her albums. "I just kind of want it all on every album” she said, adding “I think this album is sort of a combination of all my sounds. I think this new album is totally spiritual in this really not obvious kind of way. I love songs that make you move your body, but sort of have a deeper meaning to them."
