Pop: Nelly Furtado, Calle 13

We've all heard Promiscuous and Maneater in the clubs, we've all seen the new foxy image Nelly Furtado has adapted. And given her Portuguese roots (and past collaborations with latin artists), I had expected her to do a reggaeton song sooner or later. No Hay Igual was actually the first single of her early 2006 album Loose, but no one really noticed, since the song was quite monotonous and not catchy at all. Now she's issued a remix featuring Residente Calle 13: smart move, because he's one of the better lyricists in the latin rap scene. Combine that with a funky drumbeat, provided by star producer Timbaland, and you almost forget how irritating Nelly sounds on the song. Almost.

I don't think this will become a big club banger too, but hopefully the song will introduce Calle 13 to a new audience!

I couldn't agree more with you. Thats is an AWFUL song, slightly improved by Calle 13's participation.

Nelly just plain rocks!

BTW, I just found a neat Nelly site with all her story detailed. Lots of interesting and unrevealed things in there.

Why was there no follow on bankruptcy then? The bailout of AIG FP went to (wow power leveling) hedge funds that bound credit swaps on Lehman failing or others betting on rating (wow power leveling) declines. AIG has drained over 100 billion from the government. Which had to go to (wow power leveling) those who bet on failures and downgrades. Many of whom (power leveling)were hedge funds. I-banks that had offsetting swaps needed the money from the AIG bailout or they would have been caught. Its an (wow powerleveling) insiders game and it takes just a little bit too much time for most people to think (wow gold) through where the AIG 100 billion bailout money went to, hedge funds and players, many of whom hire from the top ranks of DOJ, Fed, Treasury, etc. ZHANG XIAO CHEN
