After a hiatus of 16 years since their initial major hit, three iconic pop stars from the Noughties have thrilled fans by confirming their reunion for a brand-new single.
Nelly Furtado spilled the beans, announcing her collaboration with Justin Timberlake and Timbaland. This revelation brought immense joy to fans who still hold a special place for their 2007 chart-topper "Give It To Me."
The talented vocalist behind "I'm Like a Bird," now 44 years of age, disclosed that over the past year, Justin and Timbaland have been dedicatedly working together in the studio. Reflecting on a recent conversation, Nelly shared, "We rediscovered that connection. A sincere sense of healing transpired among the three of us - Timbaland, JT, and myself. With our individual journeys encompassing highs and lows in our extensive careers, collaborating on this upcoming song feels exceptionally authentic to me. It's akin to witnessing a small-scale miracle."
"Tim messaged me like, 'Hey, I've got this track for you, it's got a dance vibe, and it's meant for a trio,' and I replied, 'You mean with JT?' He confirmed, 'Exactly.'
"Tim and JT had already been immersed in music for about a year, independently of me. They had an idea and wanted me to infuse my touch into it, so they could draw inspiration from that.
"We collaborated and created it together. The energy it exudes is undeniably positive. Personally, the lyrics and everything about it resonate deeply with my current state."
Nelly playfully hinted at the exciting news last month by showcasing Timbaland and Justin on her Instagram Story.
The photos depicted the two maestros making the most of their time in a recording studio, suggesting something big was in the works.
Can't wait to see what they come up with!
