I think we’ve all been waiting a long time for Nelly Furtado to come out with some awesome new music.

Well she’s just released the video for the first single of her Greatest Hits album called The Night Is Young.  And after a few listens, I’m disappointed to realize that we are going to have to keep waiting for that “awesome new music.”

So what’s the problem with the song?  Well, I think it can be summed up with the lyrics from the song’s chorus: “The night is young and so are we.”  Uhhh Nelly, actually you aren’t young anymore. You’re a mom now and you don’t have to sing about going out to all night raves anymore. We’d totally be fine with a great dance that is maybe just about dancing or falling out of love, not another generic pop song that makes Willa Ford look like a star.  That’s right, I just reference Willa Ford.  I’ll give you a minute.

But maybe I’m wrong.  Maybe people want to hear about Nelly going out all night.  I just don’t think I’m one of those people. Have a listen and let me know what you think!

  1. Somewhere in between. This and her last album make me sad, because she sold out. Her first 2 albums were fantastic, then she chose quantity (of dollars) over quality and put out crap like Maneater (really, Nelly… REALLY?!). This just appears to be another step in that same direction: mindless soulless club pap. Such a waste.
