Nelly Furtado: Tiny Desk Concert

“Nelly Furtado’s career has spanned a quarter-century, not to mention tens of millions of records sold, so it’s tough to fit all the highlights into a single Tiny Desk concert. But damned if Furtado didn’t at least try: Her set featured a bunch of her biggest hits (“Promiscuous,” “Say It Right,” “I’m Like A Bird,” “Maneater”), her remix of Missy Elliott’s “Get Ur Freak On” and, yes, a brand-new single called “Love Bites.” In all, 11 tracks — some of them complete, some of them truncated into medleys — made the cut.

For this set, Furtado assembled eight of her favorite veteran collaborators, who joined her in organically re-creating her busy, glitchy pop sound without relying on backing tracks. That meant incorporating everything from a violin to cowbell to beatboxing to scratching courtesy of DJ Lil Jaz — Furtado and Lil Jaz have a daughter together, Nevis, who served as the set’s creative director — in a performance that felt like a victory lap, a greatest-hits reel and a homecoming all at once.” – NPR’s Stephen Thompson explained

Along with her Tiny Desk concert, Nelly Furtado also shared her brand-new electro-pop single, “Love Bites,” with Tove Lo and SG Lewis via Nelstar/21 Entertainment/Universal Music Canada/Republic Records/Casablanca Records/Polydor Records.

Nelly Furtado, Tove Lo, and SG Lewis – “Love Bites”

Co-written by Nelly Furtado, Tove Lo, and SG Lewis, and produced by SG Lewis, “Love Bites” is a sultry dance anthem that channels the energy and escapism of dance floors and live DJ sets that sparked Furtado’s inspiration.

“I felt called back to music from the DJ community,” stated Furtado. “DJs were remixing my songs at concerts, clubs, and on social media, and I realized how much people like to dance and escape to my music. It’s the healthiest vice you can have, and I love the opportunity to write music that lets people escape more than anything.”

Over the past year, the undisputed icon of millennium pop has connected with a brand-new audience of Gen Z fans who have surged her multi-platinum hit singles. In 2023 alone, Furtado racked up 1.5 billion streams bringing her global streaming tally to over 20 billion.
