Here’s some good news for you: Nelly Furtado‘s “Spirit Indestructible” music video is much better than the actual song.
When I reviewed Nelly’s future chart flop, I mentioned how you couldn’t possibly find a title that screams “Nelly Furtado!!!” more than “Spirit Indestructible”, and the same can be said for the video. It’s got a strong elemental theme, with Nelly singing in places like a snow covered mountain and next to a beach bonfire, and comes across a lot like a throwback to the days of “I’m Like a Bird”.
She looks beautiful, and it even makes me like the song a bit more than before. I just wish this was some kind of promotional thing for the Olympics or something, and not Nelly’s official second single. The song probably works really well in the context of her new album, but the hit potential is zero, at least in America, and I don’t want to see people overlook what is most likely going to be an amazing album just because it hasn’t been able to produce a hit.
Anyway, check out the video below.
