Added DiffLines:

* {{Corpsing}}: Featured in both "Saturdays" and the chatter preceding "Big Hoops (The Bigger The Better)" (as it tries to incorporate the whole conversation that happened once the song was shown to her manager, leading Nelly to laugh).


Added DiffLines:

* IntentionallyAwkwardTitle: "Shit on the Radio (Remember the Days)". The censored title omits the first word.

Nelly Furtado (b. December 2, 1978) is a Portuguese-Canadian recording artist, songwriter, record producer and actress. Her folk-pop debut album, ''Whoa Nelly!'' spawned hits such as "I'm Like a Bird", "Turn Off the Light" and "Shit on the Radio (Remember the Days)". Her second album based on the folk-pop template, ''Folklore'', didn't do as well, sparking a change of direction musically. (2001-Present)

musically.



* ButNotTooBlack: "Powerless (Say What You Want)" opens with a criticism on how she was treated with this.



* GenreThrowback: In ''The Spirit Undestructible'' she tries to go back to rap and R&B of TheNineties, specially as Rodney Jerkins is one of the producers.
* GoldDigger \ HelloNurse: The title character of "Maneater".
* [[GratuitousForeignLanguage Gratuitous Portuguese]]: Given her ascendence, she is fluent in Portuguese. It shows in "Força", and the cover of Brazilian song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzK46Aog9yM "Sozinho"]].



* HeartbeatSoundtrack: "Try" opens with one, taken from the sonogram of Nelly's daughter Mavis.



* IntercourseWithYou: "Say It Right", "Do It", "Promiscuous".

to:

* InnocentInnuendo: "Big Hoops (The Bigger the Better)" has the phrase "the bigger the better" proeminently... but as the title shows, it refers to earrings.
* IntercourseWithYou: "Say It Right", ''Loose'' has plenty of it: "Do It", "Promiscuous"."Promiscuous", "Maneater"...


Added DiffLines:

* PunBasedTitle: ''Whoa, N̶e̶l̶l̶i̶e̶ [[http://truewest.ning.com/profiles/blogs/whoa-nellie-who-knows-the Nelly]]!''
* ReadyForLovemaking: The two characters of "Promiscuous".


Added DiffLines:

** Her second language is also shocking, given her English doesn't sound that Canadian, but her Portuguese is akin to a Lisbon native.

Added DiffLines:

* SingingVoiceDissonance: Her speaking voice is pretty much your typical young woman's voice, not really very high or low, no major accent present. Her singing voice? Sharp, nasal, a bit shrill, and accent in full force. However, her softer singing moments aren't QUITE as jarring, but they're still a little surprising.

* SpicyLatina: Subverted. She acts like a Latin American but she's actually Portuguese-Canadian. So much for [[BrokenAesop being yourself...]]
