"Hey, Man!" is a song by Canadian singer-songwriter Nelly Furtado, produced by Gerald Eaton and Brian West for Furtado's debut album, Whoa, Nelly!. The song was released as the album's fourth single in only some European countries, but it charted only in Germany, where it reached number 49, Netherlands, where it reached number 87, and Romania, where it reached number 65. "Hey, Man!" samples "White Man Sleeps" from the Kronos Quartet's album Pieces of Africa. Furtado has said of the song: "It's a big pop song and kind of rocking now because we went back to the demo version of it. Brian West had his 'Pieces of Africa' disc, and he wanted something distinct to happen in the chorus. So he chopped up 'White Man Sleeps' by The Kronos Quartet."
