Nelly Furtado's new album (Mi Plan) looks like it will be a hit

Sunday, September 06, 2009

Nelly Furtado's new album is the first one to be released entirely in Spanish, and not that fake Spanish you see where an English song is just translated; the new album is in that language alone. So far the first single (Manos al Aire) has been a bit hit and has just made it to #1. I'm admittedly not much of a fan of her type of music (radio-friendly songs of about 4 minutes in length almost never appeal to me, especially as a drummer since the percussion on these songs is almost always dreary and monotonous), but from a linguistic point of view it's interesting, since this shows quite a bit of confidence in not feeling the need to write even a single song in English.
