A very distorted clip of Nelly Furtado's comeback single

Let's face it, the wheels fell off the Nelly Furtado train about five years ago. Maneater was amazing. Promiscuous was amazing. Even the one Chris Martin wrote was amazing. But then she went and did an (admittedly very good) Spanish-language project and a half-assed greatest hits album and everyone basically lost interest.

But... BUT Nelly has just posted a clip of her new, Darkchild-produced, single Big Hoops on YouTube.

Sadly, the lyrics aren't a plea for an adult-sized edition of the popular corn snack, Hula Hoops (although could someone sort this out, please?). No, it's a song about having big earrings like Pat Butcher off EastEnders.

A weighty subject, and one worthy of serious discussion, I'm sure you'll agree.

Anyway, it turns out that the lyrics don't matter one jot because the beat is so gigantically, colossally propulsive that it will knock you backwards like a sucker punch from a kangaroo. Have a listen, then get ready for the full song in a matter of days...

Nice to have you back, Nelly.

Nelly Furtado - Big Hoops (Bigger The Better)

If you are affected by the issues raised in this video clip, Nelly Furtado has provided further insight into the lyrics with the following blurb on her YouTube channel.

Half-child,half-woman. Those big jeans and hoops unstoppable but even more unstoppable the swagger. Becoming the myth. Mythical poster creature. Hair gel hardened under a mound of fresh bun. Gold hoops borrowed from older sister. White Sox jersey borrowed from a friend who's a boy with a crush on you. Oh but the swagger. The Bigger The Better. Waiting to be invited into the cipher. Look at me. On this street. I took the bus down and I've got my Big Hoops on.

"A mound of fresh bun". The mind boggles.
