Towards the end of the video clip Nelly Furtado went on to say that an apparent K-pop or J-pop collaboration was in the works although not specifying with whom just yet.
“I’ve already enjoyed K-Pop over the years. I’m really lucky enough to live in a city where you can go to a little Korean barbeque place and watch as many K-pop videos you want on the TV screen,” during a press conference that was recently held in Singapore, the ‘international artiste’ who is a fan of K-Pop and J-Pop talked about Psy‘s “Gangnam Style” MV that’s gone viral on the ‘net, and even admitted that she’d like to collaborate with none other than Big Bang‘s T.O.P!

She added that she envisioned that a collaboration would happen at some point between her and a K-Pop or J-Pop artist, this made fans all over the world would love to see.
