What can you do in four minutes? Well, if you’re Nelly Furtado, you can climb Vancouver’s famed Grouse Mountain, perform a fire dance, lead a spiritual drum session, AND work no fewer than six different outfits in record time. Impressive, right?! The Canadian singer channels her inner wild child–literally–in her new video for “Spirit Indestructible,” and truly becomes one with nature in the gorgeous cinematic clip. Before she hits the wilderness, the video opens with Nelly onstage, working her trademark look: a glammed-up cat eye, sleek ponytail, and tons of bling. Her jeweled dangle earrings are so amazing, they’d be worth a whole post of their own. But with five more outfits to cover, this ensemble is only the beginning.

Nelly Furtado has said that the concept behind the “Spirit Indestructible” video was returning to one’s basic elemental nature. First stop? A rugged mountaintop, obviously. Before you know it, the musician magically appears on the snowy peak, singing and dancing in the same striped blazer she rocked in the beginning. But now, we can get a closer look at Nelly’s sheer black paneled blouse, washed denim, and gold jewelery. Is it just us, or does her black and white jacket totally remind you of that Herve Leger bandage dress she originally wore to the 2006 Teen Choice Awards? Throwback!

Next up, Nelly takes cues from Cleopatra in a floor-length gold grown and serious metallic jewelry (including an embellished headpiece!). The result is Egyptian goddess-meets-Princess Jasmine, and we love the clash of the over the top ensemble against the au naturale backdrop. Sorry to steal your word, Christian Siriano, but there’s really no other way to describe this regal outfit besides just … fierce.

Ever the quick change artist, Nelly swaps out her all-gold frock for a green and blue gown in a split second . With its flowing sleeves, sheer layers, and nature-inspired color palette (duh), this is theme dressing at its absolute finest.

Fire dancer, anyone? Nelly’s changed into a sequined top for the night scene, where she rocks out next to the flames in a glittery headband and Vanessa Hudgens-esque feathered hair acccessory. It’s a boho-beachy look that we’re not familiar with on the singer (who told us that she usually opts for streetwear basics like tank tops, hoodies, and denim), but we’re digging it.

A ha! Now THIS is the Nelly Furtado that we’re used to seeing in music videos. For the drum circle, she’s returned to her urban-inspired roots with a gold jacket, bra with mesh overlay, and a navy maxi skirt. She’s cashed in on three of fashion’s biggest trends- cropped tops, metallics, and sporty looks- in a single outfit.

She continues the athletics-inspired theme for the final outfit, a varsity jacket with leather sleeves (and jazz hands!) We’ve been searching for a similar topper of our own ever since we first spotted Bethany Cosentino’s vintage version on the cover of Paste, and Nelly makes it official- we’ve GOT to have it.

She closes the whirlwind vid on the ultimate style note by revealing “Spirit Indestructible” emblazoned across the jacket’s back, ending this four-minute style show in the most epic way possible. And there you have it! Tell us which of Nelly Furtado’s six “Spirit Indestructible” outfits is your favorite below. And if you have to watch the video twice (or ten times) to decide, we totally don’t blame you…
