The long-running franchise's latest instalment "might be the summer's most satisfying blockbuster"
Nelly Furtado : I'm Like A Bird
Infectious debut single from this new singer songwriter...
Singer/songwriters of Nelly's ilk have a tendency to crop up at regular intervals, boasting multi-instrumental skills and diverse musical influences, only to disappear after one naggingly infectious single; never to be heard of again
'I'm Like A Bird' IS naggingly infectious with a left of centre, urban feel (she's pals with Eminem and Dre), made memorable by Nelly's unique voice. It is this voice (think Erykah Badu meets Bjork) that could be the key to breaking the singer/songwriter curse.
It is an undeniably lovely track, albeit imbued with the sort of hippy-dippy lyrics beloved of Des'ree. But she'll need several more like this if the nest she wistfully seeks in this song is to be the UK Top Ten.
