Shakira, Shakira

shakira-cover-510March 27th marks the release of Shakira’s 10th studio album. I remember when I first heard her voice and saw her on MTV in the video ‘Whenever, Wherever.’My mom fell in love with her music as well that my youngest sister was named after her. Shakira is beyond a Latin sensation and has showcased that she can do just about anything. She’s a global sensation that shows no sign of slowing down.

Shakira has done just about every genre of music and with her upcoming self-titled album she’s going Country with fellow “Voice” judge, Blake Shelton.In her recent Billboard cover story, she discussed the process of this album:

It’s been two-and-a-half years of making songs, trashing them, doing them again, doing eight versions of each song, having a baby, doing “The Voice,” coming back to the studio, reconnecting with my songs.

In 2013 she gave birth to her son, Milan Piqué Mebarak with boyfriend/’soccer’ player Gerard Pique. She met Pique on the set of her ‘Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)’ video and has a song for him on her new album titled, ’23.’

At 37 she’s done basically everything. She has 10 albums under her belt, won over 200 awards including 4 AMAs, 6 Billboard awards, 2 Grammys, 8 Latin Grammys, and 5 VMAs. On top of music she’s balancing family and her new gig as The Voice judge and in my personal opinion she and Usher are my favs alongside Adam and Blake.

Her new album, Shakira, is available for pre-order on iTunes and hits stores 3.25.14.
