Nelly Furtado "Mi Plan"
After the huge success of her critically acclaimed album "Loose" which allowed her to be the number 1 artist in global sales in 2007, Nelly decides to do her musical dream of making her first full Spanish language album.
She had done many successful collaborations with artists all over the world in all different genres, but the collaborations with the Latin artists left her with this huge desire of expressing herself in this language, and that is how this new album was born.
"Mi Plan" (My plan) is Nelly's 4th studio album which reflects once again her artistry, diversity and the uniqueness of everything which she writes. The album, as all her albums, is written and co-produced by her in collaboration with top writers and producers, as well as young new talent she believes in. She doesn't feel this is a "Latin Album", she says that this is just her soul speaking in Spanish, as all her albums "just music for the world". Music is a universal language and in this album she has brought the world together, working with musicians, writers and producers from all over the globe.
The album is filled with fresh, enthusiastic, fun, freeing, unique, strong and passionate songs that reflect the great moment that Nelly is currently experiencing.
The first single of this album, "Manos al Aire" (Hands in the air or I surrender), is a mid-tempo song that brings you in faster than you can understand to what she is trying to tell her loved one. The tip of an iceberg that will outlive the barrier of language, culture and time!
