“Say It Right” is an R&B song recorded by Canadian singer-songwriter Nelly Furtado for her third studio album, Loose (2006). Written by Furtado, Tim “Timbaland” Mosley and Nate “Danja” Hills and produced by Timbaland, Danja & Jim Beanz, the song was inspired by, as Furtado described it, the “spooky, keyboard-driven pop sound” of the band Eurythmics, specifically their 1983 song titled, “Here Comes the Rain Again”. The song released as the album’s third single in North America and Australia. The song served as the album’s fourth single in certain European and Asian countries.
“Say It Right” attained worldwide success, topping the charts in more than seven countries, including the United States, France, New Zealand and many European countries. The accompanying music video for the song, directed by Rankin & Chris, portrays Furtado singing in various costumes and in various locations.
