Nelly Furtado

I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for Nelly. In a world of bland, auto-tuned teenagers churning out drivel, she’s making pop music with a bit of fucking oomph.

Yes, you’ll be hearing this blaring out of the radio all summer, but it’s fun and catchy, so I’m hoping it’s not going to be the Umbrella of 2012 (I still can’t with that song).

Also, can we talk about this video? How incredible are those dancers? I love that she’s incorporated Native American dancers, but hasn’t strayed down the cultural appropriation path by styling herself out as one. A great summer song, and a really positive example of Native American imagery.
