Nelly Furtado – ExplodeCategory: Music Videos
In a publicity release to promote the album, Furtado said: "This song came from a poem I wrote called Teenage Waste. When you're a teenager, you want to try everything; you're like a little firework. Your wiser self is there, somewhere deep down, depending on how young or old your soul is. But it doesn't always show itself. 'Explode' is visceral; it's guttural. That's why part of the song uses terms from Capoeira, the Brazilian martial arts form. It touches on teenage experimentation and bliss and fun, but also on some violence and aggression."
