The Latina superstar’s latest album boasts an infectious sound with a slightly more dancey beat.
LATINA superstar Shakira is back with a new album She Wolf today, following the release of the first single of the same title recently.
Shakira wrote and produced She Wolf with John Hill (Santogold) and penned the, as usual, quirky lyrics. She weaves a mischievous tale of a metaphorical she wolf in the distinctively dance fusion style that fans have come to expect. An inventively sexy video directed by Jake Nava and featuring the metamorphosis of a woman told through her unique dance techniques, was also released recently.
She Wolf boasts the infectious and energising sound that made Shakira a household name, with a slightly more dancey/electronic beat.
The song has an organic disco feel with a chorus: There’s a she wolf in the closet, open up and set it free, there’s a she wolf in the closet, let it out so it can breathe. At the start of the song, an ominous fanfare through a vocoder hooks the listener “there’s a she wolf in disguise, coming out, coming out, coming out.” Then a vibrant string section builds to a final crescendo at the end of the song.
The album features a predominantly English track list with a follow-up album of new and unique repertoire in Spanish coming in 2010. Though most tracks on the upcoming album will be in English, Shakira chose to release the Spanish version called Loba first, two weeks before the English single was launched.
Loba is now available globally in recognition of Shakira’s longstanding fan base and unique bi-lingual appeal.
Shakira boasts a string of chart-topping hits in English and Spanish and sales of over 50 million records. Her last project, Oral Fixation Volumes 1&2, has sold in excess of eight million copies worldwide with the singles La Tortura and Hips Don’t Lie having earned over 10 million digital downloads.
