Tony Duncan Talks Hoop Dance With Nelly Furtado

Earlier this month we told you about “Big Hoops (Bigger the Better)” – the new single by Nelly Furtado. Nelly was caught on camera on stilts in downtown Los Angeles and World Champion Hoop Dancer Tony Duncan was in the mix so needless to say we were super curious. Well the track has been released digitally now in the U.S. as the lead single from her upcoming fifth studio album “The Spirit Indestructible”. The song certainly has a great groove, but while the lyrics are clear that bigger is better there is little mention of hoops and she appears to be referring to big hoop ear rings. And yet a new behind-the-scenes sneak peak at the making of the music video for the single has Nelly hanging out in Los Angeles with not just Tony Duncan, but his wife Violet Duncan and his brother Kevin Duncan as well. The Yellow Bird Productions hoop dancers talk a little about hoop dance and show off some of their skills as well and we can see they are clearly in the video. So needless to say we’re still intrigued. As for the new album Nelly says, “This album is all about positivity, youth, good energy and the relentlessness of the spirit. I want people to live this music the way we did when we wrote it. I want them to jump, dance, scream, laugh, cry, love and vibe to it, and to turn it up very loud everywhere.” Listen to the new single “Big Hoops (Bigger is Better) with lyrics below and check out the sneak peak at the making of the music video with the Duncans.
