New Music: Nelly Furtado – ‘Big Hoops (Bigger the Better)’ [Snippet]

Nelly Furtado

Nelly Furtado does it way big on “Big Hoops (Bigger the Better),” the first single off her fourth English album The Spirit Indestructible, due June 19. The Canadian chanteuse returns to a more urban sound on the beatboxing production by Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins.

“Bet you never heard something like that,” sings Nelly, who also collaborated with Nas, Salaam Remi, and Tiesto on the follow-up to 2006’s multi-platinum album Loose.

The song goes to iTunes on Apri1 17, but check out a snippet in the video below.

  4. Kyle

    Sounds really interesting! I can’t wait to hear the full version!


  5. Whatever

    Rodney Jerkins is a Timbaland wanna be, this sounds like something Tim would produce. Sounds like it’s a hot song though.

    @Whatever, True hope for the best with her she probably didn’t get to hit the studio with Tim with him doing SV3 and Missy’s Album i hope she works with Danja though Tim and Danja killed it with Loose i don’t know if she will do another record like that again

    @Whatever, You think Darkchild is a Timbaland wannabe? WOW. You need yo ears checked. Darkchild has reinvented himself so many times and his sound is nothing like Timbo’s.

    @Whatever, Oh STFU! At least, Darkchild doesn’t still other people’s songs and call it in sampling. Darkchild is always reinventing himself, unlike Timbaland. Guess who’s still getting work? That’s right – Darkchild. So have several seats.

    Sounds amazing already. She always comes up with different sounds. Go Nelly!


  7. Warren

    WOW, sounds DOPE!

    the first part was “weird”, the the last part sounded so great.

    now anticipating it



    Song is dope go NElly F. thought it was a Timbaland track but of course its a beat biter known as Jerkins


  9. Juize

    I was expecting an “I’m Like A Bird” song because of the video pictures, but I’m glad it sounds so different! Can’t wait to hear this one in the clubs!


  10. Brandon

    This shit is DOPE! she’s back & she’s getting ready to slay once again. Honestly now i can’t wait for her new album


  11. reality

    @whatever / Jerkins is definately not a timbaland wanna be, his hit singles list is incredible and he know how to refresh his style. Jerkins is a fan of timbo and timbo is a fan of timbaland acording to Brandy. This song seems to be dope


  12. Piper

  13. Manas
