Natasha Bedingfield - Unwritten
Natasha Bedingfield asserted Nelly Furtado sensibilities in her last single, These Words. Bedingfield embraced the same freedom of spirit as Furtado did in I’m Like A Bird, and it was what Bedingfield exhibited in her chorus of These Words, where she sang I love you, I love you, I love you… with that ‘I’m free and at one with nature’ effect.
Her new single Unwritten is very similar to These Words. Furthermore, Unwritten is so much like These Words that they are both written about writing. Yet, both songs have the Furtado quality, and it does make for very contemporary pop.
However, even though she encapsulates the freedom and lightheartedness that Furtado expresses in her songs, she doesn’t have the same depths in her lyrics for her last two singles to be about anything else other than writing something yet to be written. Therefore, where Furtado is Like a Bird, Bedingfield is only thinking about it.
