Nelly Furtado- Loose: Top 10 Singles in US and UK / Memorable Chorus of a Song

Nelly Furtado- Loose
United States- Nelly Furtado changed her musical direction via “Loose” which gave her a bigger success and achieved something she never did before. The album became her first (and also the last) album from hed which went to number 1. It was awarded with 2x platinum by RIAA. She also achieved successes with her singles from the record. Check her top 10 songs from the album:
Promiscuous (ft. Timbaland)- #1
Say It Right- #1
It is clear that Nelly Furtado achieved not just top 10 hits, rather number 1 single, not just one but two. Those singles were “Promiscuous” and “Say It Right”, which both were assisted by Timbaland. The two singles were even awarded with 3x platinum. She also charted at number 16 with “Maneater”, number 86 with “All Good Things (Come to an End)”, and “Do It” at number 88.

United Kingdom- Nelly Furtado’s “Loose” had some achievement in United Kingdom too. Aside from 3x platinum award by BPI for the album, she had hit singles from it. Here are those hits:
Promiscuous (ft. Timbaland)- #3
Maneater- #1
Say It Right- #10
All Good Things (Come to an End)- #4
Nelly Furtado scored at least a total of four top 10 singles in the UK. she scored her first ever number 1 single with “Maneater”. She got high chart peak with “Promiscuous”, a song with Timbaland” at number 3, and “All Good Things (Come to an End)” at number 4. While “Say It Right” settled at 10th. Her song “Do It” only peaked at number 75.

Nelly Furtado’s biggest hit in the United States has been “Promiscuous”, while it was “Maneater” in United Kingdom when they reached number 1. But I am sharing the UK number 4 hit “All Good Things (Come to an End)” because it is my favorite from the album, and it is a good song.

All Good Things (Come to an End) (Chorus)
Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end
Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end
come to an end come to an
Why do all good things come to end?
come to an end come to an
Why do all good things come to an end?
