Released: 26th February 2001.
The first Portuguese-Canadian artist I've heard of releases her debut UK single from her incredibly diverse debut album "Whoa Nelly". Whether you're into hip-hop, pop, rock, folk or Latin music, Nelly's got it all, and this single is a shining example of some of the gems on her album. With a unique voice, a brilliant songwriting talent and an inspiring new style, Nelly's heading for big things. One of the best new artists around.
Portuguese-Canadian singer Nelly Furtado makes her debut with this great single "I'm Like A Bird". To me, it sounds like a cross between Slipknot, Britney Spears and Burt Bacharach, which is definitely a good point. The song is a funky, groovy, easy listening tune, which I can see a lot of people buying, and wouldn't be surprised if it became a Top 10 hit.
