Nelly Furtado is back in the game!
It's been a decade since the pop singer dominated the radio with hits like Promiscuous and Maneater — but just like the bird that she is, Nelly could be flying back onto the radar any minute!
On Monday, the 37-year-old surprised fans by releasing a stripped-down acoustic cover of Calvin Harris's Feel So Close!
In a post on Facebook, the singer explained that the popularity of her live version of Calvin's hit, which she performed at a radio station back in 2012, made her want to record an official studio version!
Nelly posted the intimate cover exclusively on Spotify, because "they are very artist friendly and compensate musicians well for their art." (Jay Z and Taylor Swift would disagree with you on that, girl.)
We really hope this means a Furtado comeback is underway. The singer has been working on her album since late 2014 — and with fellow ‘00s radio divas Gwen Stefani and Fergie gearing up for comebacks, the timing for Nelly couldn't be better!
What do U think of Nelly's cover? Ch-ch-check out her live cover (below) and take a listen to the official version HERE!

Fergie's hubby was discussing the celeb couple's family with the Associated Press when he dropped the bomb on the music news, saying:
However, The Black Eyed Peas frontwoman let the teasing continue as she not only played the intro for her new track during her Rock in Rio show in Lisbon, Portugal, BUT she also performed her new Nicki Minaj collaboration titled, You Already Know. YAS KWEEN!
Obviously, this performance only built
This girl's got some attitude… and we are loving it!!

Thursday night was a very emotional night for quite a few basketball and sports fans as it marked Kobe Bryant's very last basketball game.
The Black Mamba certainly went out in fashion as he capped off the end of his 20 year career with the Los Angeles Lakers by beating the Utah Jazz 101-96 and scoring 60 points himself in his final outing!
After the 37-year-old scored his final bucket of the night at the free line, the entire El Lay crowd was immediately on their feet. Not to mention, the famous athlete walked over and gave Shaq O'Neal a hug and, once the final buzzer went off, took center stage to give the crowd a fitting speech (below).
Kobe addressed how blessed he has been throughout his career and thanked everyone from his friends, family, and teammates… before dropping the mic with a "Mamba Out!" LOVES it!
Of course, with #24 being one of the greatest players to ever play the game, he had the world watching him. Not surprisingly, several A-lister took to Twitter to praise the now retired NBA star — including Reese Witherspoon, Kanye West, and even President Barack Obama.
Ch-ch-check out all of the best celeb reactions online AND watch Kobe's highlights as well as hear his speech for yourself (below)!
This is so sweet.
