Album Watch: Shakira To Unleash The Beast

Monday, June 15, 2009

There's something afoot in Shakira Land. Something that is quite mysterious and unexplainable. For the past couple of weeks, there has been jabber about the Colombian hip thruster's new English album and that the rumored first single is to be entitled, "She Wolf". While that sounds all hunky dory, I'm a tad befuddled at the Blair Witch Project-esque campaign that is swirling around the new single. Viewing the promo video was a bizarre experience, a very bizarre experience indeed. On viewing, it's all quite anticipating, especially since this thrown together site cryptically explains what the hell is going on. There's a lot of wrap your head around, but still I'm highly curious as to what ghoulish things are in store. Also, since the new album is getting an October release, it sorta explains the direction why a rampant "she-wolf" is being used. Halloween anyone? Whatever the case, it sounds like this is building up to be something worth checking out. Shakira's as-yet-untitled effort is to be featuring productions by Wycelf Jean, RedOne, and Pharrell Williams. "She Wolf", the single, will be making an appearance come later this month.

  1. Shakira + Pharrell??? Hmmmmm as much as I hated the Neptunes at the start of the decade I kind of miss them now. I mean they were at a point where every song on the radio was dominated by their beat or lyrics or some kind of production credit now it's like Pharrell will work on a Jay-Z record every once in a while and who knows what happen to Chad and that other guy (even though Chad did do a pretty good job on writing Bittersweet World but I digress). I could never really see Shakira jumping on an "urban" band wagon but we'll see how it goes. According to that website the single is going to be explosive so I'm pumped. Maybe it's just one of those things that you can't judge it until you listen to it.
