Nelly Furtado To Release Expanded Edition Of Debut Album To Celebrate 20th Anniversary

Grammy winning singer-songwriter Nelly Furtado has announced plans to release an expanded edition of her debut album Whoa, Nelly! to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

Furtado also shared a throwback video of herself promoting the album 20-years ago on Instagram.

“WOW!!! Twenty years! How did this happen?” she captioned the clip. “So excited! Thanks for all the love over the years. Feeling so grateful, and looking forward to making more pop music in the future. Thanks! Gracias! Obrigada! And Much Love.”

“P.S. Hope I’ve grown up a bit since I filmed this clip twenty years ago, but (shrugging emoji),” she added.

The expanded edition of Whoa, Nelly! drops October 23 via Dreamworks/UMe. The original album, which dropped on October 24, 2000, went on to win Best Pop Vocal Album at the 2002 Grammy Awards.

The record also took home two Juno Awards. The album was RIAA-certified double-platinum. It included singles, “I’m Like a Bird,” “Turn Off the Light” and “…on the Radio (Remember the Days).”

The expanded edition will include the 12 original tracks, the five tracks from the two-disc 2008 Special Edition, and five digital-only bonus tracks.
