R&B singer D'Angelo pleaded guilty on Friday to disorderly conduct for soliciting a prostitute. The singer was arrested in March of last year for attempting to pay $40 to an undercover officer posing as a prostitute. The case is resolved, but no details have emerged since D'Angelo, his attorney and the prosecution all declined to comment on the case.

D'Angelo has had other troubles with the law since he all but disappeared from the music world a decade ago. In 2005, he was given a three-year suspended sentence for cocaine possession and later that year he had his driver's license suspended for 18 months after being found guilty of driving under the influence of alcohol and possessing marijuana. He was also charged with assaulting a woman at a gas station in Richmond, Virginia in 2002.

“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."
