Watch: Nelly Furtado Releases Homemade Music Video For ‘Big Hoops’


Nelly Furtado has released an alternative music video for her new single Big Hoops (Bigger the Better). We got to see her original video in May and today we have a brand new “homemade” video for Big Hoops which Nelly filmed in a parking lot on Sunset Boulevard in L.A. during shoots for her album artwork. Check it out below and compare it to the original (“real”) one. I’m interested to see which one you like better…

On Thursday Nelly tweeted “Some like it HOME-MADE” alongside a link to the video on her official Twitter account. The video is fun y’all. It definitely doesn’t feel homemade in an amateur way. It is more personal that the original video for sure, and captures the spirit of Nelly a lot more, IMHO.

I didn’t love the song when I first heard it, but now that I’ve played it a few times it has really grown on me. It is catchy as hell and I luurve the idea of the song – getting your power from your big hoop earrings. As someone who loves her own hoop earrings, I found the concept totally adorable.

Nelly’s new album The Spirit Indestructible is due for release in September. If this track is anything to go by I think it could be a great album. Watch her alternate homemade video to ‘Big Hoops (Bigger the Better)…

And, just for comparison sakes – here is the original music video..which one do you prefer??

    Home-made ftw! I love her rainbow skirt! Gaga should pay attention and take a lesson. Nelly is a true talent and true artist. She makes art for the sake of creating, not for the sake of adoration and worship. I like this song. It’s going on my playlist STAT!
