Description

Music video by Nelly Furtado performing Força.

(C) 2004 Geffen Records

"Força" (Portuguese for "strength") is a pop folk song written by Canadian singer Nelly Furtado, and Gerald Eaton and Brian West for Furtado's second studio album, Folklore. It is sung mainly in English, with the chorus completely in the Portuguese language. It was produced by Track & Field and received a positive reception from music critics.

Released in June 2004, the song was chosen as the official anthem of the 2004 European Football Championship held in Portugal.

Furtado said about the song: "When I was touring in Portugal, people would frequently say goodbye to me by saying "Força", which is Portuguese slang. It translates as "Keep going", or "Kick ass". It's also associated with sports, especially football. I put a feminine twist on the idea of how you feel when you’re watching your favorite team. When you tie that into nationality, it becomes pretty intense. So this is a happy song, a burst of energy. Plus, we have [banjoist] Béla Fleck playing on the song. His contribution here is amazing.".

The music video was shot in Toronto, Ontario and directed by Ulf Buddensiek.
