Spring Break...Here to Party

Capitol Nashville
Rolling Stone: star rating

The latest from this chart-topping country frat boy is the best spring-break concept album ever recorded. It's also the worst, and probably not the last. The titles tell the story: "Suntan City," "Buzzkill," "Sorority Girl." There are fine country variations on this theme (cf. Brad Paisley's "Water"), but Bryan's songs are witless and boring. You end up with a contact hangover, depressed about American higher education.

    “Promiscuous”

    Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

    This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
