Nelly Furtado has worked with her husband, Demacio “Demo” Castellon for years now, and quite well. The couple has collaborated and produced two successful albums, Loose 2006 and the follow-up Mi Plan, Spanish-language album, 2009. Castellon reportedly admitted they make a good team, but according to People, Furtado explains, just because they work well together doesn’t mean its smooth sailings all the time. The singer went on to say they have a “healthy tension” when working together and how he helps “challenge” her as an artist. The lovebirds don’t work together all the time and have separate projects according to Furtado, but they will come together this year to work in the studio.
