Released by DreamWorks Records in North America on October 24, 2000.
The sound of the album was strongly influenced by musicians who had traversed cultures and "the challenge of making heartfelt, emotional music that's upbeat and hopeful."
Released by DreamWorks Records in North America on 25 November 2003.
The album's title was influenced by Furtado's parents' immigration to Canada, "When I look at my old photo albums, I see pictures of their first experiences going to very North American-type places(...)When you have that in your blood, you never really part with it—it becomes your own personal folklore."
Released by Geffen Records June 20, 2006 in North America.
Furtado said that with the release of her albums before Loose, she had wanted to prove herself as a musician and earn respect from listeners through using many different instruments on an album, which most hip hop musicians did not do.
Released in North America on September 15, 2009.
Furtado spoke about the inspiration behind Mi Plan: "I love being a multicultural artist, I love being a global artist. [The album] is almost like a literal reflection of that this time..."
