Today marks the birthday of two divas, Britney Spears & Nelly Furtado. Britney and Nelly both started their careers in the music industry around the same time but have had very different paths and sound. Let’s take a look at some of the epic songs these ladies have given us throughout the years.
Britney’s first album …Baby One More Time, which released in 1999 received a 14-times platinum certificate from the RIAA for selling 14 million copies! Nelly’s first album Whoa, Nelly! didn’t too shabbily either, it was more critically acclaimed and hit double platinum status after it’s release in 2000.
Both Britney and Nelly grew in terms of their sound from their first album. From Britney breaking loose in I’m A Slave 4 U and Nelly experimenting with an R&B and hip hop sound in her third studio album Loose.
Britney’s most famous collaboration till date has been with Madonna for the song Me Against The Music while Nelly’s multiple collaborations with Timbaland have proven successful time after time.
Nelly has always had a fascination for Indian music and has been collaborating with the Montreal based duo Josh for many of her remixes. Britney too previously made a Bollywood remix of Me Against The Music and most recently tied up with Culture Shock to produce a Desi version of Till The World Ends.
Britney and Nelly have many many more years of music ahead of them and thank god for that! Here’s a look at their latest projects, Team MissMalini wishes them a very Happy Birthday!
