Furtado to release Spanish album

Nelly Furtado
Furtado shot to fame in 2000 with her her hit single I'm Like a Bird

Singer songwriter Nelly Furtado is set to release her first album recorded entirely in Spanish, according to US music magazine Billboard.

The star has already been heard singing in Spanish on duets with Colombian rock star Juanes, and on her 2006 Latin American single, No Hay Igual.

The 30-year-old is best known in the UK for Timbaland-produced hits such as Promiscuous and Maneater.

She has also announced a Portuguese language album via her Myspace blog.

Furtado shot to fame in 2000 with her her hit single I'm Like a Bird.

The song won her a Grammy for best female pop vocal performance, while her multi-platinum debut album, Whoa Nelly!, was also Grammy-nominated.

However, the world music-influenced 2003 follow-up Folklore was less successful.

Last year, she secretly married her boyfriend, sound engineer Demacio Castellon.
