When pondering what Shakira would dress up as for Halloween, I would guess based on her recent album release and hot dance single with a video to match it that Columbian dance goddess would be donning some fangs and pointy ears as the big, bad, sexy wolf. Sadly Shakira´s November cover of Rolling Stone is only slightly dissapointing with no wolf costume, though Shakira still looks as gorgeous as ever as she talks about the album, the changes in her music and her upcoming tour.
She wolf, the first single off Shakira´s new album has brought her back into the spotlight after the major successes of her first few US albums, though this time Shakira isn´t just getting attention for her amazingly honest hips. Her ability to enter into a completely new arena with her music, in this case the world of dance and electronic pop, and create a fusion with all the world and latin influences she is known for has gained Shakira a round of applause from many critics.
"You've got to put together a nice meal and make sure the spices don't take over the main ingredient. And at the end of the day, it gives a nice flavor in your mouth." Shakira told Rolling Stone, explaining her hard work and experimentation with different beats and sounds.
Still, when you get down to it, She wolf and just about every other song the album is about, well, getting down. "From the beginning, I wanted an album that was dancy and fun. I wanted to have fun with this, and I want people to have fun with it as well, to forget about the economic crisis at least for 10 seconds on the dance floor,” Shakira told Time Magazine.
While we will have to wait and see how much Shakira´s upcoming single, Did it again and Give it up (featuring heavy hitters Timbaland and Lil Wayne) get people in the mood to move, She wolf has definitely hit the target. With lyrics like, ¨There´s a she wolf in the closet, open up and let her free,¨ She wolf is the perfect carefree anthem for girl´s night out.
Ladies, it´s time to start shaking those hips and reach for your inner animal, because Shakira´s She wolf is now available here on Red Karaoke. And if you prefer to howl in Spanish, give La Loba, the Spanish version a try.
