The hip hop inspired track, which gets a dub step swing at the end, has now also seen the video release. Quite a funky video kicking off with Nelly gaining a lot of viewers in the streets as she’s walking around on stilts (Bigger the Better Of course). And bigger the better is a constant theme throughout the video with the superstar trying out big hair, big shades, big earrings,… you get the hint.
Do we like the song? In fact we do. On a first listen, while Furtado has a very unique voice, we couldn’t help but feel she’s gone a bit Nicki Minaj’ish in the song. And the video seems to be giving that impression too. Is it disturbing? God noFurtado’s been around the block for quite some time since the release of ‘I’m Like A Bird’ 12 years ago and has always come back with a reinvented style of music. Thumbs up girl!
Big Hoops was written by the famous Rodney Jenkins (Destiny’s Child, Jennifer Lopez) and is the lead track for new album ‘Spirit Indestructible’ which is out on June 19. A UK release for ‘Big Hoops (Bigger The Better)’ is expected on June 3rd via Itunes and available for pre-order.
