With the genius that is Jay Brown now in her corner, there’s little doubt in anyone’s mind that Shakira‘s new album will go down as one of 2014’s strongest releases…from every angle.
For, as if Roc Nation’s muscle power wasn’t enough to ensure the LP was afforded the ‘red carpet treatment’ laid out for Rihanna LPs, Shakira has revealed that the project is her strongest to date- seeing her return to the ‘purity’ her first release had served in abundance.
Meet us after the jump!
Speaking to Colombia’s Elenco Magazine, the Pop royal revealed:
“I figured out how to make songs again with attitude, more rock and roll sounding, the kind of sound I first began experimenting with during the first stage of my musical career. Of course, evolving and hopefully making progress. I am happy with this (new) material. It took me some time to reach it, with some interruptions, the pregnant.”
For, if ‘industry murmurings’ are to be believed, ‘Bijoux 22‘ performer Elijah Blake is one of a few chart toppers hand picked by the ‘Se quiere, Se Mata’ to aid in the album’s conception, reportedly doing so after be introduced his own material in the latter part of last year.
Bring on 2014!
