Nelly Furtado's "Say It Right" is one of the most successful songs of all time. In fact, it has gone Platinum in several countries, proving that it is a global hit. Not only did the song reach #1 on the US Hot 100, but it also went to #10 on the UK Singles Chart.
The song was written by Furtado herself, as well as Timberland and Danja. Although the title of the song does not mention a particular topic, the song does have a strong romantic feel to it.
While the song is a love song, it also has a general inspirational tone. This is the case with many of the other songs on Nelly Furtado's Loose album. That is why the lyrics can be a little hard to interpret.
Say It Right was a top-notch hit in the United Kingdom, where it spent 31 weeks in the top 75. It also reached the top ten in Australia and Ireland. The song's success in these countries was part of what made the album a huge global success. Ultimately, Say It Right helped make the Loose album a million-seller.
The video for Say It Right was directed by Rankin and Chris. It was shot in Los Angeles and it features both Nelly Furtado and Timbaland. They are both pictured in different shots, but they are often close together.
"Say It Right" earned a Grammy Award nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Other awards that it received include a triple-Platinum certification in Spain and a nomination for the Billboard Music Awards.
