Despite declaring that NIN's Bonnaroo gig was Nine Inch Nails' "last show ever in the United States," Trent Reznor is staging a series of 10 intimate club shows before taking an indefinite break from the road. The Wave Goodbye Tour will hit New York. Chicago and Los Angeles, playing venues as small as 500 seats. "NIN as a band that's on the road all the time is stopping," Reznor said in a recent interview. "I've reached the point where [touring] has invaded every other aspect of my life. I think creatively my time would be better spent on other stuff."

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."
