Nelly Furtado wants to see more artist integrity in music

Nelly Furtado has spoken out about the importance of songwriting and how it should feature more in today’s music.

In an interview with Associated Press the ‘Try’ singer explained:

“I think nowadays everybody feels like they can become a star just because they're on YouTube, but that's not the only part of the equation.”

She has enjoyed great longevity in the music industry and feels that it’s because she fought to keep her integrity:

“Write your own songs - even if you don't end up using it, it shows you what you want to say and you get in touch with what you want to say and who you are as an artist.”
