Nelly Furtado has written 20 songs with Timbaland, hoping that some of the new materials will be included in her upcoming new English album.
Nelly Furtado has her first Spanish album "Mi Plan" scheduled to arrive in September, and she recently teased that another studio project, this time an English set, is also in the works. Furthermore, she opened up about working with Timbaland, who previously produced her 2006 release "Loose", in the record.
"I'm also writing an English album," Nelly told Entertainment Weekly during a visit to promote "Mi Plan". She added, "Timbaland and I hooked up in the studio about three months ago and we wrote 20 songs in two days. It was really inspired. I think maybe some of that material will be on my English album."
Other details, including working title and release date for the English effort, are yet to be disclosed as Nelly mostly talked about "Mi Plan". Among other topics she discussed were the pressure from her label to "do a quick and easy Spanish version of the 'Loose' material."
"But I put the breaks on that," Nelly explained. "I feel like you have to follow your heart because you have more to lose if you compromise and then don't succeed. But you've got to really appreciate success when it comes. With 'Loose' I took the time to toast with champagne every number one and every platinum record."
"Mi Plan" is scheduled to hit U.S. market on September 29. Possible featured guests in the album include Juanes, Alex Cuba and Josh Groban. Its lead single "Manos Al Aire" was outed earlier this month with an accompanying music video being debuted later on.
