Acclaimed singer-songwriter and all-around beauty Nelly Furtado has a “best of” album dropping Nov. 16.

It’s incredibly hard to believe it, but the “I’m Like a Bird” singer has already been around for 10 years. Her first album, Whoa Nelly! was double platinum. She dropped a big, but followed up with a 2003 gold album called Folklore.

The new album, The Best of Nelly Furtado, will feature her original hits and three previously unreleased songs. There will be a standard and 2-disc edition.

Of the previously unreleased recordings, “Night Is Young,” the album’s first single, was co-produced by Salaam Remi (Nas, The Fugees, Amy Winehouse) and Staybent Krunk-A-Delic, and co-written by Nelly Furtado. Producer Remi and Furtado also co-wrote “Girlfriend” while “Stars,” was produced by Lester Mendez who co-wrote the track with Furtado.

Furtado is working on a video for “Night is Young.” She has a fifth original album coming early next year.
