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

Nelly Furtado- Whoa Nelly
United States- Nelly Furtado released her debut album in United States called “Whoa Nelly”, which awarded her 2x platinum by RIAA. It also had hit singles on Billboard Hot 100. Here what really made it at the top 10:
I’m Like a Bird- #9
Turn Off the Lights- #4
Nelly Furtado actually had three singles released but two went to the top 10. It started out with her debut single “I’m Like a Bird” at number 9, followed by the more successful single “Turn Off the Lights” for peaking at number 4.

United Kingdom- Nelly Furtado was very successful in United Kingdom as well with “Whoa Nelly”, the record which she received 2x platinum by BPI. It released three singles, but not all went to the top 10. Check which made it below:
I’m Like a Bird- #5
Turn Off the Lights- #4
Nelly Furtado scored two singles to access the top 10 slot. “I’m Like a Bird” is a great hit when it peaked at number 5. Just like in America, “Turn Off the Lights” peaked higher in United Kingdom too at number 4. The single which failed to reach the top 10 was “…On the Radio (Remember the Days)” which reached number 18.

Nelly Furtado’s highest charting song from the album “Whoa Nelly” was “Turn Off the Lights”. However, “I’m Like a Bird” became more widely known. Still, I am sharing the song “Turn Off the Lights” because of its cooler sound. Enjoy that cool song below:

Turn Off the Lights (Chorus)
They say that girl ya know she act too tough tough tough
Well it’s till’ I turn off the light, turn off the light
They say that girl you know she act so rough rough rough
Well it’s till’ I turn off the light, turn off the light
And I say follow me follow me follow me down down down down
till’ you see all my dreams
Not everything in this magical world is quite what it seems
