Shakira Readies New Album

Published: Thursday 29th Apr 2010 by Sam

According to our friends over at Rap-Up, gyrating Pop starlet Shakira is already hard at work on the follow-up to last year’s ‘She Wolf’ LP. Indeed, the 32 year old recently clocked up studio time in Miami with hitmaker Rico Love, who dished on the project. Check out what he had to say below…

I worked with Shakira a few weeks ago in Miami. We did two sessions together,” Rico told Rap-Up TV. “She’s working on another album.”

Fans of the “Gypsy” can expect to see her shake her famous hips once again with the new music, which Rico described as having a “more pop, edgy” sound. “She wanted to really dance on this record and do what made her famous in America, a ‘Whenever, Wherever’-type vibe,” he revealed.

Despite her global superstar status, there were no diva antics in the lab. “She’s really a sweetheart. We got along really good,” said Rico. “She understands what she wants, she knows her strong points, and she demands that.” {Source}

News of a new Shakira album comes as little surprise. For, despite spawning a hit with the ‘She Wolf’ single, the album and its follow-up releases didn’t exactly blow up the charts. With the industry still financially worse for wear, it’s pretty much a given that her label Epic are behind her swift return to the studio. One can only hope she strikes it lucky with her next release, as next to no artist is safe from the label axe these days.

    I really enjoyed the ‘She Wolf’ album. I heard she is working with Pharrell again. I hope so because they have great chemistry. Adding Rico will definitely spark interest in her next project.

    I think she really pop-sized it bit too much for her last record. However, her last record kinda lacked personality, lacked the spice of a “Hips Don’t Lie,” “La Totura” type of feel. “Give it Up To Me” was kinda cool, her AMA09 performance was stellar by the way. It’s funny, “La Totura” was such a popular song on the pop charts back in 05 despite it being all in Espanol. But her true ethnic personality was what made it so popular. Basically she needs to stick to her roots like someone said.
