New Nelly Furtado: Manos al Aire

I've been waiting to write about this for weeks but "this video is not available in your country due to copyright restrictions". Yawn.

Manos Al Aire is the first single from Nelly Furtado's new Spanish-language album, Mi Plan. Albums recorded "in foreign" tend to sell poorly in the UK, so Nelly has come up with a cunning plan to encourage us to put aside our xenophobia and splash out on her new CD.

Here's the press release:

Do you see? Spanish and Portuguese have LATIN ROOTS, like what ENGLISH does. They are essentially the same, if you think about it properly. In fact, most Spanish words are just English words with an extra "os" at the end! Like your word "much" - it's "muchos" in Spanish!!! I can't think of any other examples right now, but I think it's a fairly safe bet you'll be able to understand all the lyrics on my record without even noticing you're doing it.

Also, our word for sandwich is "bocadillo", which is a vast improvement, I think you'll agree.
