Nelly Furtado

Furtado in 2017 Nelly Kim Furtado (; ; born December 2, 1978) is a Canadian singer and songwriter. She has sold over 45 million records, including 35 million in album sales worldwide making her one of the most successful Canadian artists. Critics have noted Furtado's musical versatility and experimentation with genres.

Furtado first gained fame with her trip hop-inspired debut album, ''Whoa, Nelly!'' (2000), which was a critical and commercial success that spawned two top-10 singles on the ''Billboard'' Hot 100, "I'm Like a Bird" and "Turn Off the Light". The former won her a Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Furtado's introspective folk-heavy 2003 second album, ''Folklore'', explored her Portuguese roots. Its singles received moderate success in Europe, but the album's underperformance compared to her debut was regarded as a sophomore slump.

Furtado's third album, ''Loose'' (2006), was a smash hit and became her bestselling album, with more than 10 million copies sold worldwide, also making it one of the bestselling albums of the 2000s.{{cite web|url= Provided by Wikipedia
