English speaking fans of Canadian singer-songwriter Nelly Furtado had to wait a good 7 years for her next english album since the her last one in 2006 (Loose). With hits like “Promiscuous”, “Maneater” and the every popular “Say It Right”, it’s not hard to understand the high expectations from fans for The Spirit Indestructible.
Seeing how Nelly Furtado takes on the role executive producer for The Spirit Indestructible, as well as a principal writer, it’s not hard to wonder if the 33 year old still has it in her to write and produce tracks that would appeal to listeners.
That’s where industry heavy weight Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins comes into the picture. Involved in 7 of the 12 tracks like the title track “Big Hoops (Bigger the Better)”, “Spirit Indestructible” and the latest single, “Parking Lot”, Nelly Furtado certainly has found a good partner to work with.
You can feel that attractive “pop-ness” there yet also sense that unique personality that fans of Nelly Furtado have come to love over the years. Even her other lower key songs like “Miracles” and have a potiential to creep into the frequent playlist.
Overall recommending The Spriit Indestructible to fans of Nelly Furtado is a given and even listeners new to her should consider giving the ablum a try.
