EXPLODE - NELLY FURTADO (2004)

EXPLODE was released as the fourth single from FOLKLORE. The song charted in the top 40 in NetherlandsSwitzerland and Germany. NELLY said the song "came from a poem I wrote called Teenage Waste. When you’re a teenager, you want to try everything; you’re like a little firecracker. Your wiser self is there, somewhere deep down, depending on how young or old your soul is. But it doesn’t always show itself. “Explode” is visceral; it’s guttural. That’s why part of the song uses terms from Capoeira, the Brazilian martial arts form. It touches on teenage experimentation and bliss and fun, but also on some violence and aggression.”

EXPLODE also had a huge impact in Argentina (which is the country I live in), becoming her 6th single to entered the Top 5 (I’M LIKE A BIRD, TURN OFF THE LIGHT, FOTOGRAFÍA, POWERLESS and FORCA all peaked at #1)
After FOLKLORE, NELLY reached the top of the Argentinian chart with MANEATER and IN GOD’S HANDS (plus, PROMISCUOUS, ALL GOOD THINGS, MANOS AL AIRE and SPIRIT INDESTRUCTIBLE entered the Top 10)

Personal favorite part of the song

It’s a fight, it’s a fight and you finally belong

Got a shiner now and it’s more than a battle scar
More than a battle scar, such a good, good story to tell
At lunch break, lunch break, lunch break, lunch break
Such a good, good story to tell

You bully, you break, you bully, you break
You fake, you fake, you fake, you fake
You smoke, you toke, you want, you flaunt, you hit it and you’re in it and it’s spinning

And it’s wild
We never thought that we’d get caught up
Stuck in the teenage waste”

SHOWTIME - NELLY FURTADO (2006)

One of the best tracks from LOOSE though it didn’t become a single
Gotta love Nelly’s work as a songwriter on this one..

Put on your best clothes
We’ve been waiting too long for this moment
I’ll put on my best smile
I’m shining inside and I’m proud of our love but
Everytime I turn around you say that you’re not checking for love in that way
But everytime I come around you seem
So ready for this

Showtime our love’s coming out
Lights camera action show what we’re about cuz it’s
Showtime our love’s breaking out
Let’s show the world you’re my boy
I’m your girl cuz it’s
Showtime our love’s coming out
Lights camera action let it all hang out
Cuz it’s showtime
Yeah our time is now
Let’s show the world you’re my boy
I’m your girl

Let’s break a leg out there
This could be the start of the rest of our lives
I’ve got so much to share
And I’m ready to put it all out there for you
But everytime I turn around you seem
So afraid of what people might say
But can’t you see it’s a game they play
Trying to cast a shadow on our love

I wanna love you when I want
Want to love you where I want to
Wanna touch you when I wanna
Wanna kiss you when I wanna baby

Because it’s not fair to love you in chains
It’s not fair to love you in chains
