Nelly Furtado – Loose (2006)

Capturing a rather unexpected rise to mainstream superstardom for the distinctive Canadian-Portuguese performer, “Loose” was an out-of-the-blue proposition for Nelly Furtado, combining her love of hip-hop with radio-friendly pop hooks and throwing in a complete image make-over. The result was a huge hit and has stood the test of time, emerging as one of Furtado’s best albums among a solid discography, with stand-out smashes like “Maneater” and (especially) “Say It Right” still packing wallops, while lesser-known numbers like “Showtime” and “Te Busque” manage to enthrall and charm again and again.
