I wonder if Nelly Furtado was trying to be ironic when she named her current album, Indestructible, because it’s been anything but that. The Canadian singer’s fifth studio was dead on arrival and has only moved just a bit over 30,000 units in the United States and 150,000 worldwide. A far cry since Loose which sold 2 million domestically and 10 million globally back in 2006. Perhaps, Indestructible might’ve done better if she lead with this track instead of “Big Hoops (Bigger the Better).” That track was definitely not bigger nor better.
“Waiting For The Night” is one of the strongest songs on her latest effort. The 34-year-old singer would’ve been wise to use this as the lead cut or even the follow up, instead of waiting to drop it as the fourth official single. At this point, the label isn’t going to fork over major cash for a music video, which is a shame because the song deserves better. That being said, the visual is entertaining enough, even though it’s a little budget. Furtado is half-woman, half glam-zombie in the black and white video. Check it out below.
What do you think of the music video? Do you like the track better than her previous singles from Indestructible? Will Nelly ever score another huge hit like “Promiscuous” ever again? Sound off below.
