Sure, Nelly Furtado might not seem like a particularly #WildCardWednesday choice, however I have chosen this song – Manos Al Aire – because it is sung entirely in Spanish.
The song (which translates to ‘Hands in the Air’ or ‘I Surrender’) was the first single taken from Nelly Furtado’s first entirely Spanish album, Mi Plan (2009) and was produced by James Bryan and Nelly Furtado herself.
Furtado stated that one of the reasons this song is in Spanish is due to the complexity of the lyrics and that it would be a “train wreck” if it were sung in English.
I hope you like this exotic #WildCardWednesday wonder-song! Please share the link to this post on your social media sites and reply below with your #WildCardWednesday choice for the week.
