Album: Whoa, Nelly! (2000)
Charted: 18
  • Furtado wrote this as a response to people who criticized her for selling out to the mainstream. She feels she has remained true to herself despite her Pop success.
  • This was Furtado's third single. It has a different sound than her first two: "I'm Like A Bird" and "Turn Off The Light."
  • The video was directed by Hype Williams, who previously worked with many hip-hop artists such as Kanye West and Busta Rhymes. The clip opens with Furtado singing in her bedroom before she takes it to the streets with her old school radio. Canadian hip-hop group Swollen Members makes a cameo appearance.
  • This is Furtado's favorite song on the album. It got a lot of attention when she performed it on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
  • The official title of this song is "S--t on the Radio (Remember the Days)." The offending word was edited out for radio. >>

  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnHot track, I love how blunt the lyrics are. My fave song from Whoa Nelly!
  • Brian from Edmonton, CanadaOn the album, this song is actually called "S*** On The Radio".

    For obvious reasons, the profanity was omitted from the song title when it was commercially released as a single.

    During the song, Furtado also uses the phrase "S*** On The Radio" several times. For the single version, the word "S***" is blanked out in all instances it is used.
