[Video Spam] Alison Moyet, Dido, Fantasia and Nelly Furtado All Debut New Music Videos

If the increased nasality- wow I thought I'd made that word up, but spell check isn't arguing with me, so I'm using it- wasn't enough, Nelly just didn't seem to give a fig muffin: speak-singing through some of it, singing off key at other moments and just lacking any of that indestructible spirit (see what I did there?). Not her finest moment. Not by a long shot.
