Shakira fought label to release Hips Don't Lie

Featured Posts

Why has Latin pop become so big? “Well, it was about time,” says Shakira. Now 42, she wrote her first songs at just eight and recorded her first album, Magia, at 13. “When I started, Colombia had a nonexistent pop scene. I had to overcome so many obstacles to become an international pop singer. Later on, even when I crossed over to the Anglo-American market, I had to fight my own record company to put out music like Hips Don’t Lie. My music always had some kind of fusion – Colombian and Middle Eastern influences, so it made my path even harder.”

Hips don't lie was a superhit.

She's the most successful latin artist of the decade.

I really wish she would come back to the English market again, she's been missing.

I just hope she would come back to her original style, songs like Ojos Asi or Objections, it feels like since Hips Don't Lie she's stuck with this style.

I'm not serious 99% of the times ;)

I would say that's Paulina Rubio just for the sake of it :hor: but you're right perra!

I know Paulina is fantastic and so talented. but Shaks mainstream talent  is unparalleled, Waka Waka, Chantaje, La Bicicleta, La la la all have more than a billion views :firega:

Shakira's team was much smarter than Paulina's. Both had their crossover eras and Paulina's English album even certified gold in the US but for some reason she never released another English album and rather remained loyal to her Spanish-language pop sound :legend:

I don't agree with that statement at all tho. Her self-titled album and She Wolf had very different styles from Hips Don't Lie. It's only on her spanish albums that she focuses more on reggaeton

I still listen to this song on mainstream radio! It's a cute one.

 

I agree with you, for years now Shakira has kept her sound very stagnant. That or she has hopped into trendy Latin tunes (they all sound the same, you can't even tell if the singer is Shakira or any other).

(I don't listen to her albums though, just the singles I catch on the radio).

I love "Underneath Your Clothes", and "Don't Bother" is for me one of the best songs she has ever released (or any Latin artist for that matter).

Hips Don’t Lie was huge and I’m happy that it got so much recognition but that’s around the time I listened to Shakira’s music less and less. I prefer her more chill albums and that’s just me but it’s great to see more people loving her music today. She rarely writes her own music anymore (nothing wrong with that) so that’s probably why I feel like her songs don’t sound as personal as they did but she’s still an icon.

But did Shakira get kicked out of her label for low sales? :coffee:

Mrs. Caca's career found dead in a ditch, re-evaluation process started.
