Published November 27, 2003.Nelly FurtadoFolklore(DreamWorks)Gone is Nelly Furtado’s hip-hop/pop-infused sound, and in its place stands a more mature womanly perspective on the world. Her sound has evolved into a thicker, more developed voice—think Sophie B. Hawkins. Furtado uses her newfound tools to knock one out of the park with “Try,” a track that will be all over radio. Fans of her debut Whoa Nelly! may be disappointed, but Furtado has moved away from the pitfalls of being a teen diva and closer to the adult contemporary crowd. —Trevor Savory
