Fresh off her performance at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards, Nelly Furtado ramped up promo for her upcoming album The Spirit Indestructible with an appearance on L.A.’s “KTLA Morning News.” The Grammy-winning songstress performed an acoustic version of “Say It Right” and her new single “Big Hoops (Bigger the Better).”
The Rodney Jerkins-produced song was inspired by her teenage years. “I used to put on these big huge hoops, big baggy jeans, and be in front of the mall,” said Nelly. “I thought I was famous, but I wasn’t yet. It’s a song about that swagger and that attitude. Even if you don’t wear hoops—your watch, whatever it is makes you feel good.”
Nelly’s album has been pushed back from June 19 to September 18.
