Nelly Furtado's "Big Hoops (Bigger The Better)" Kinda Sucks, Let's Face It
The Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins-produced "Big Hoops (Bigger The Better)" is quite a loud, Auto-Tuned, all-over-the-place mess, no? It's a real shame, considering that Nelly's three chart-topping singles from her 2006 - 2007 golden period — "Promiscuous," "Say It Right" and "Give It To Me" — were all solid jams produced by Timbaland.
In fact, one wonders why she didn't return to the studio with Timbaland for at least one song to bridge the gap between Loose and this album. Instead, she worked with Salaam Remi, Darkchild, Tiesto, Bob Rock and John Shanks (plus Fraser T. Smith, who did a song on the deluxe version of the LP).
Here's hoping there's better material lying in wait.
