For anyone who thought her plan after the wildly successful hip-pop of Loose was to ease into big-time mainstream pop stardom, Nelly Furtado would like to introduce you to her wrench. Entirely in Spanish, Mi Plan zigzags across Latin music. Furtado tries on accordion alt-pop and romantic balladry. She duets with flamenco artists, merengue stars and, uh, Josh Groban?! She makes almost all of it work, grounding those diverse styles in nearly universally beloved pop aesthetics and singing the Spanish lyrics with a new vocal richness. Nelly's plan? Experimentation -- and lots of it.
