Nelly Furtado joins Billion Views Club

Nelly Furtado is officially a member of YouTube's Billion Views Club.

The singer's Say It Right music video featuring Timbaland has joined a star-studded list to hit the milestone, just shy of 15 years after it was first uploaded, as reported by Billboard.

Posted on the platform in June 2009, Say It Right sees Furtado performing the track atop a Los Angeles skyscraper, standing on a helicopter pad emblazoned with her name.

Clips of a trio of male dancers, as well as scenes of Timbaland providing the song's signature backup vocals, are spliced in between shots of the Canadian artist singing to the camera.

The track snagged Furtado a Grammy nomination at the 50th annual awards for best female pop vocal performance in 2008.

Released as a single from her third studio album Loose, Say It Right peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2007 and catapulted the LP to the top of the Billboard 200.

The album also features the Timbaland-assisted hit Promiscuous, which spent six weeks at the top of the charts.

Fifteen years later, Furtado is six albums into her music career.

Her newest single, Love Bites featuring Tove Lo and SG Lewis, dropped on 22 May.

An early metric of a video's popularity, the YouTube Billion View Club includes clips that have succeeded in reaching over a billion views since their initial upload.

Furtado joins the list that stars the likes of Luis Fonsi with Despacito, Ed Sheeran with Shape of You, and Mark Ronson with Uptown Funk.

In December 2012, Gangnam Style became the first video ever to reach one billion views.

In January 2022, Pinkfong's Baby Shark became the first video to hit 10 billion views.
