Singer Nelly Furtado Shot at the W Hotel in South Beach Miami by photographer David Roemer for the latest issue of Spanish Vanidad magazine.
The singer's new album, 'Mi Plan,' is racing up the charts from Mexico to Europe, a tribute to her ability to tap into a multicultural background.
"Mi Plan," the chanteuse says, came out of her desire to delve deeper into Iberia's lyrical sensibility, which she previously has explored in duets with colleagues such as Colombian superstar Juanes. She also felt, instinctively, that Spanish would be the best tongue for conveying her current state of being as a working mom who savors the quotidian pleasures of parenting, making music and daily life in her Toronto hometown.
"I tried to write in English a few times, and it was, like, forget about it. I just had no inspiration," she says. "And then when I started writing in Spanish it was like, 'Whoa! I get to finally pay tribute or experiment with all the Latin pop sounds that I love. And all the artists.'
