SHAKIRA IS BACK
"SHE WOLF" SINGLE REVIEW She's back, and on October 5th you'll have access to Shakira's new album "She Wolf". But don't expect to see the Colombian star you met in the release of her first English record "Laundry Service". If you're a true fan, this is definitely not the same Shakira from the 1995 "Pies Descalzos". The Barranquilla native has evolved throughout the years changing her looks, sultry dance moves and now her lyrics. The once poetic, socially conscious Shakira seems to have crossed over to a style that appeals to an audience who might be more interested in what bizarre, yet sexy positions she can do rather than what she has to say. Of course, it could all be intentional.
"It's a very electronic album," the singer told MTV News. "Dance-oriented. Club-oriented. I want people to have fun with it. Forget about the troubles. Forget about the crisis. Forget everything for a minute — at least while they listen to the music."
And forget about their problems they will. Take a look at the "She Wolf" video below and let me know what you think! I had to listen to the song about three times to fully understand what she was saying- the electronic beat washes her voice out. But in this "dance" record, I doubt anyone cares what Shakira has to say. They'll be too busy looking at her butt. I know I was. - Mercedes Sanchez
