''At the moment that they made their first big hit together, Furtado and Timbaland were both coming out of minor career slumps, so they helped each other with the process of reinvention. Together, they nudged pop music in a slightly different direction. That’s one of the secrets to selling out. You can’t just attempt to meet the mainstream where it is; you also have to move the mainstream closer to where you are.If you weren’t paying close attention to Nelly Furtado’s whole arc, “Promiscuous” must’ve seemed like a wild, out-of-nowhere zag. Furtado first came into the mainstream in the dying days of the whole Lilith Fair MOR singer-songwriter boom. Her music was giddy and eclectic, but it seemed to have some basis in idealistic coffeehouse folk-pop. A few years and one sophomore slump later, she was half-rapping about being horny over a clattering club beat. “Promiscuous,” Nelly Furtado’s first chart-topper, was a clear bid for the mainstream success that she’d seen slip away. But the song also made sense. With “Promiscuous,” Furtado streamlined and foregrounded a few elements that had existed in her music from the beginning. She also made a pretty good song. That was important, too.'' (StereoGum)
