Singer/songwriter Nelly Furtado knew she'd made the right decision to work with hip-hop supremo Timbaland on her new album LOOSE when speakers in the studio burst into flames. The LIKE A BIRD hitmaker chose to work with the producer/rapper on her third album and was thrilled when she received a good omen in the studio. She explains, "I felt a real intense energy, really loud. Then we smelled smoke. There were flames coming out of the speakers. It was like an omen - like the (biblical) burning bush, but a burning speaker."
