Whoa! Nelly.


Nelly Furtado performed “Cold Hard Truth” on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Thursday. She used the opportunity to highlight several social issues under fire since Donald Trump became president.

As OUT points out, her entire outfit was constructed by queer people of color (their words): “Styled by Brooklyn’s Phil Gomez, another queer POC, Furtado was dressed in a Nicopanda blouse, designed by OUT100’s Nicola Formichetti, faux cowhide coat by rising queer brand Daimorf, necklaces from Chris Habana and wide-legged lace trousers by Gypsy Sport. While these details are largely insider knowledge, Furtado’s fashionable protest is valuable in creating visibility for independent LGBTQ designers.”



Nelly Furtado isn’t messing.

The Canadian comeback kid has premiered “Cold Hard Truth”, the gritty follow-up to her new LP’s laid-back lead single.

Thought be produced by John Congleton, the song sees Nelly come to the realization that she doesn’t belong with the person she’s currently with and declaring her independence.

“Cause you and I were meant to be alone / But the cold hard truth is I can make it without ya,” she sings. “The cold hard truth is I waited too long.”

“Cold Hard Truth” is the second single to be released from “The Ride” – Furtado’s upcoming sixth album – and follows the soulful lead “Pipe Dreams.”

She’s expected to perform the new song on Late Night with Seth Meyers tonight.

“The Ride” will be out March 31. Get “Cold Hard Truth” as an instant grat when you pre-order!
