Sure, her new album is sexy, exciting and good for the moment.

But I much preferred her earlier music...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wod092NnBg - Powerless :hearts:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SroK4OT_gOg - Try :hearts:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NISWzRhmknM - I'm Like a Bird :worship:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Udr0iz7JhzQ - Explode :hearts:

Great song and video, and she wasn't trying so hard to be hot. :angel:

What do you all think, do you like current Nelly or old Nelly better?

I miss old Nelly too. :sobbing:
She used to be so free and cool, like she didn't care what people thought of her. She made her music, and if you liked it great, if not, whatever.

Now it just seems like she's in it for the popularity and the money.

Old Nelly was SO much better. It seems she has become a whole new different person. I saw an interview with her recently, and I never remembered her being so ditzy. She was acting like such an air-head.

Oh God, Powerless was one of her whackest songs ever. :o

Nelly is not THAT much different from the way she was before. Her first album had just as much hip-hop influence (Baby Girl, Turn off the Lights, Shit on the radio) and aggressiveness as Loose does. Her second album (which was her worst IMO) is where she took the departure from her true style and started making that World Music shit, and not many people liked that (as shown by record sales from that album).

Yeh I remember that song :sad: Nelly where have you gone? :sad:

I guess though she did what she needed to survive. Her second album didn't do anywhere near as well as 'Woah Nelly!" and she needed a direction change. Now look at her, one of the biggest hits of the year. I wish she hadn't sold her dignity whilst doing it but whatever.

You CANNOT compare Turn off the Lights, Baby Girl & Sh*t on the Radio to Maneater or Promiscuous Girl. They aren't anything alike.

I agree - A lot of people tend to forget that it seemed like this was the direction she was moving into after the first album. She did collaborative performances with Missy Elliott for a remix (which I believe was also where Nelly first met Timbaland?), so it seemed like that was a natural progression. She ended up doing the Folklore album, which was a big surprise to me, and unfortunately it just didn't catch on enough. I actually really liked that album, but I can see how it's definitely not for everyone. Nelly's shown with all 3 albums that she's not intent on staying in the same spot for more than one album and I think that's a good thing. She's not afraid to experiment and to dive into several styles of music, so you're going to get a mix of many different things from her. That's still evident even from listening to Loose. Yes there are some very commercial more obvious single-worthy songs, but it's not a collection of tracks that all sound like 'Promiscuous'. Nelly needed this to revive herself especially in the American market, and I'm sure part of her probably knew that too, but I don't feel she has sacrificed any kind of integrity in doing that because she is a multi-genre artist and has proven so through the course of all of her albums. :)

I think 'Folklore' as a whole is more like 'Woah Nelly!' than 'Loose' is. The only songs on Loose that really remind me of the 'old Nelly' are probably "All Good Things" & "Tu Busque" and perhaps "What I Wanted" like marginally.

I guess we just disagree about who the 'old Nely' was. I think she was far more eclectic than the sounds on "Te busque" and "All Good Things".

Don't get me wrong, i do like her new songs, but it was obviously too hard for her to stick with her real sound. Its sad that she gave up, she obviously just wanted the money and more fans which she wasn't getting with her older style.

I don't see the problem. Artist innovate constantly, they don't just stick to one style. Nelly has shown she is capable of different styles. That's what makes a true artist.

Im not the biggest expert on her, but I did like her early hits a lot more than her newer stuff, which sounds to me very much like a dozen other performers, and visually looks that way too.

A shame, cos I think she is both talented and pretty.

I actually like her new stuff so much more, her old stuff wasnt me at all. I can see why her old fans wouldnt really like her new stuff though. I can also see why she has changed her style, this is what makes the big bucks I would have done the same thing.

James
Dec 13th, 2006, 11:11 AM
I dont see that there is anything wrong with what she has done, Yeah her old music was more real and her and she had many loyal fans but her new style is what makes money and i dont diss her for that. Personally I didnt like her before, its not really my thing and I dont mind her now, but she looks like someone who might constantly change it up and come out with new things every album she releases.

She sold quite a lot already. Why are people trying to make it look like she is just doing this for the money? She is just doing what true artists do, they innovate. They explore different styles. They don't just stick to just one trick. It's a positive thing she comes up with new things each album.

Yeah I hate how people are acting like she sold out, just because they got used to the sounds of Folklore and the slower songs on "Whoa Nelly!". She didnt sell out, shes just exploring multiple genres like she has been doing since her first album.

What exactly is "new" and "innovative" about her new songs? Nothing.

But you are right, it's definitely new for her to make unimaginative and boring music.

New as in in different from what she's done before. New as in blending styles together to create different sounds.

I don't know what to call music these days, even her new stuff sounds like pop to me, pop is now called hip-hop and cheezey crap poppy-hip-hop is now called r'n'b, am i getting old already? Pop-hop anyone? :lol:

Here we go again.

Right, I can't prove my opinion. But too many things fit into the picture:

- that her last album didn't sell well.
- that she's now making RnB or whatever it's called, which is very popular in the US.
- that she's wearing less clothes in her videos.
- that her lyrics are more about sex now, like everyone else's.

Seems very clear to me what's going on here. :)

Have u listened to "Loose" in its entirety, or are you basing this opinion off of just her first two singles? Because the album it is definitely not R&B and the only song thats about sex is Promiscuous.

So why would I vote for the "old Nelly" and keep posting in this thread if I hadn't liked her in the first place? Makes little sense.

You won't find me in many other threads regarding "pop music" so that alone shows that I care(d) about Nelly.

And yes, her new songs ARE boring and unimaginative. It could be any other person performing these, nothing Nelly-specific left.

But it is still your take on things, it's easy to twist things to fit the way you want them to. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle. She has always been influenced with R&B, she is just taking it to another level, working with other people like Timbaland, with his style blending with hers. Lyrics about sex are not that unusual by the way.

Then maybe taking the negative approach to things is your style. Most of your responses were negative in wording and roll eyes smilies. And what makes little sense is that you call her music boring and unimaginative and still claim to like her album. That is a clear contradiction.

Yes, you're right and I agree with you, I didn't start this thread to say she has been selling out, but more that her old music floats my boat more, and I felt she sung more naturally and it "fit" her more. I don't know why GD is being so negative about her, artists of course switch it up and that is a good thing, but I just preferred her old style.

I love Saturdays! Try is also a brilliant song.

I can definitely see why some people think she sold out doing this album, though. I had no problem with her dressed up as a slut trying to dance in her videos, the songs were fucking awesome.

Most music critics would say Folkore's her best album. No, it didn't sell well but it was all down to the SHIT marketing - they released the wrong singles, gave it little promotion etc. Another good example would be Brandy's Afrodisiac.

Yeah, but to me album sales shouldn't matter as much, rather than good music. The world doesn't really know good music, they know catchy music, and folklore was good music.

Loose is pretty good but it's not as original or personal of her.

Nelly was already experimenting with pop-hop(as her and Timbaland labeled their collaboration) before "Loose". Folklore didn't quite sell as expected so she had to take a different approach.

The problem some people in this thread have is not with Nelly but the style of music (R&B/Hip Hop) she's now singing. The sentiment is nothing new, it's either Rock/Alternative in your eyes or the artist flat out sucks. :o

So true...I hate how people have said shes sold out by taking this kind of approach to music. Being an artist is all about growth, and Nelly is experiencing some growth and testing the waters of different musical genres. Personally, I think she does every style very well and have been more than satisfied with all of her albums.

I love her new album, I've been listening to it for weeks now. I don't even know how anyone can call this album hiphop/r&b, because its not, she has two latin flavoured songs on it, songs like all good things which is very folkloreish and even a few popish songs. This album is great and covers so many types of music.

Dec 14th, 2006, 11:37 AM
I'm sorry, but half the songs on 'Loose' could've been on either her first or second album. Nelly was just being her free, careless self when she wanted to do a fun album. She did what she wanted to do. She always liked HipHop, she never denied that. She did the Timbaland Remix of 'Turn Off The Lights' and let Timbaland sample 'Babygirl' for a track with Ms. Jade.

:shrug:

I like Nelly. For me there's no old or new.

I like her new album, but not totally sure what to think of it. It's definitely more "commercial" than Folklore, but her previous record label got swallowed up by a larger one and I wouldn't be surprised if they had a large say in the new music.

That being said, it still stands out from the Ciara/Pussycat Dolls hip-hop out there. She still makes it her own music and songs like "Say it Right" and "No Hay Igual" are different from other commercial songs on the radio. "Promiscuous" was crap without question, but it's tough to judge an entire album based off radio singles.

The one thing I will say though is that somebody's telling her that she needs to act like an airhead and it's pissing me off. She did an interview with Tavish Smiley a couple of years ago and was so poised and eloquent in her responses, but was on MTV the other day and I had to turn it off. She sounded like a dumb sorority chick.

considering her new album is one of my favorite albums ever (and i'm not even into pop music) i think i like this 'new nelly'? i didn't really pay attention to her before.

Old Nelly was SO much better. It seems she has become a whole new different person. I saw an interview with her recently, and I never remembered her being so ditzy. She was acting like such an air-head.

Completely!

She is SO fake it is unbelievable. Have you heard that shrill, affected laugh of hers?

She is just trying to sex-up her image for the teenage market by promoting herself through pointless chats about nothing on kids' shows.

I really don't care which version I get of Nelly Furtado as long as I get Nelly Furtado.
Why are some people so easy to use the "sell out" slogan as soon as an artist makes a change.
Whether you think she made the wrong choice or the right choice she's showing growth by taking a risk.

Lets be real. Musically Nelly was never that great anyway and at least with her selling out she has a new look.

Nelly's New Look >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Old Look.

Umm...what selling out?

She's working with Timberland.
She worked with Timberland in the beginning of her career when she did the remix to Get Ur Freak On.

So she's putting on tighter clothes and being sexier.
Even Alanis Morisette decided after a while, what is the problem with me putting a little color on my face and showing some skin.
It can be a pain in the ass trying to find outfits that emit the sex appeal of the Omish.
