Nelly Furtado’s 2000 debut single, “I’m Like a Bird,” positioned her as the next post-Lilith Fair star. But the Canadian singer/songwriter had a much different flight path in mind: In under a decade, she would transform into a pop powerhouse, slipping elements of folk, dance, R&B, hip-hop, Latin pop, and worldbeat into the charts. Born in Victoria, Canada, in 1978 to Portuguese immigrants, Furtado grew up singing, first in her parents’ native language. She eventually learned trombone, guitar, and keyboards, and began soaking up ‘90s hip-hop, trip-hop, and R&B. All those influences fused together on her 2000 debut album, Whoa, Nelly!, a playful pastiche of acoustic riffs, brash raps, woozy beats, and even a little fado. While she embraced more of her heritage on 2003’s Folklore with banjo-powered anthems “Forca” and “Powerless (Say What You Want),” she found full liberation on 2006’s Loose. Producer Timbaland brought out Furtado’s provocateur potential, as proven on the slinky hip-pop hit “Promiscuous” and Hall & Oates-nodding “Maneater.” A chart-topping superstar at this point, she’d only keep pushing her boundaries, releasing the Spanish-language album Mi Plan in 2009, followed by the dark electronic and hip-hop experimentations of 2012’s The Spirit Indestructive and the carnivalesque indie-pop of 2017’s The Ride. If anything, Furtado’s greatest allure remains her fascinating unpredictability.

Notable

Nelly Furtado has sold over 45 million records, with 35 million in album sales worldwide, making her one of the most successful Canadian artists.

"Whoa, Nelly!" produced two top-10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100: "I'm Like a Bird" and "Turn Off the Light." The former earned her a Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.

Her second album, "Folklore" (2003), had a folk-heavy and introspective style that explored her Portuguese roots. It achieved moderate success in Europe but was considered a sophomore slump compared to her debut.

Furtado's third album, "Loose" (2006), became her bestselling album, selling over 10 million copies worldwide. It produced four number-one singles: "Promiscuous" (featuring Timbaland), "Maneater," "Say It Right," and "All Good Things (Come to an End)."

She released her first Spanish-language album, "Mi Plan," in 2009, winning a Latin Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Album.
