The 'I'm Like a Bird' singer-songwriter taps into her Latin roots for the latest music video.
Multi-genre artist Nelly Furtado unveiled a music video for her latest single "Waiting for the Night" off her "The Spirit Indestructible" album. The exotic beauty shows off her dancing skills in the black and white video, doing the tango with a male dance partner while surrounded by a group of female back-ups dressed in white nighties and made up with face paint. An accordion player appears towards the end of the clip as Furtado repeatedly sings, "I'm waiting, I'm waiting... waiting for the night."
The dance-pop track "Waiting for the Night" is the fourth single from Furtado's fourth English-language studio album "The Spirit Indestructible" released last year. The opening verse immediately tells the storyline for the song, "Baby I know you're outside / In here it's warm and dry / Got feelings that I've got to try expressing / Like a language that I share with you / Let's talk in the special way we do / Don't want to be anywhere else but here with you /Feels so good."
The danceable tune is highlighted by a very catchy chorus: "Day and night, day and night / You blow my mind, blow my mind / And I can't help, help myself at all / I can't hold back / Day and night, day and night / You blow my mind, blow my mind /And I can't help, help myself from falling / So I'm waiting for the night."
Just recently, the Grammy Award-winning Furtado reportedly scaled down her tour due to low ticket sales, following her latest album's so-so performance in the charts.
