Nelly Furtado’s back and she isn’t buying “Pipe Dreams.” Four months after honoring Missy Elliott at “VH1 Hip Hop Honors,” the pop powerhouse delivers hernew mellow cut.
“Don’t sell me no pipe dreams,” she sings. “I want to live in a kaleidoscope.”It’s the first sign of The Ride, her forthcoming sixth project, which follows 2012’s The Spirit Indestructible. The song’s theme of avoiding reality in favor of a fantasyworld will also play a role in the album.
“A lot of [The Ride] touches on that,in terms of sanity versus reality,” she told The FADER. “The comedown, the hangover after the rush, and how you put the pieces back together, and how you make amends with the realer parts of life.”
