Shakira Hints At Rock Leaning New Album

Published: Saturday 23rd Nov 2013 by David

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.”

Exciting right?!

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!

    I’m excited for her album, she normally doesn’t disappoint musically.

    Beyonce better push that album back, Shakira always comes hard.

  3. RockinRiri November 23, 2013

    Watch Fraudonce suddenly say she wants Elijah too.

  4. MalikOnMyMind November 23, 2013

    The competition will be so real next year.
    Beyonce. Nicki. Shakira. Mariah. Gaga. Rihanna.

    • NT November 23, 2013

      Gaga has another album coming out next year?

    • miss ross the boss *icon* November 23, 2013

      you guys said the same about this year and everyone disappointed. i ain’t tryna hear that s***.

      • Apologetic November 23, 2013

        Well said!!

        All of the big promises were disappointments: Katy, Britney, Gaga, Beyoncé…

        The only real surprise at this year’s music industry were Miley Cyrus’ mainstream breakthrough and Christina Aguilera’s weight loss and unexpected songs like Say Something and We Remain.
        The rest of the industry was only hype but nothing else.

    @TurnupforCiCi why is Beyoncé on your mind before your own fave? Making comment about her when there’s a Ciara post below.

    • TurntUp4Cici November 23, 2013

      It’s a free country b****.

  6. Katy B 4 Rita O November 23, 2013

    Elijah must be balling.

  7. H** HUSH November 23, 2013

    Yas for the girl that Oldonce desperately tries to be but she fails. Go Shakira, true talent!

  8. How Many Drinks (Miguels Wifey) November 23, 2013

    Who said it wasn’t? Beyoncé on your mind over your own fave kiii.

  9. Kisses Down Low November 23, 2013

    DEAD why is Beyoncé mentioned in almost every comment more than Shakira? Her power over yall is real.

    • H** HUSH November 23, 2013

      B**** go worry about Kelly, she’s a true definition of flop. When will she finally get a Platinum album in the USA? How come that she only has 2 hits in career, Dilemma and When Love Takes Over and she’s not even a lead artist on them? Lmaoooooo she’s pure struggle.

    • Charles November 23, 2013

      I like Beyoncé but the reality she is not doing well. People just got bored with her. Shakira is a megar star and she sold more records than Beyoncé. She is very popular across the globe. I don’t Know, Beyoncé flopped badly, Shakira so far never had a flopped record.

  10. miss ross the boss *icon* November 23, 2013

    people outside of mexico listen to her music?

  11. Michael November 23, 2013

    the ignorance! first, she isn’t even mexican (although she is one of the biggest artists there). second, of course they do, she is one of the most globally successful artists of this generation. her last lead single, loca, was #1 in 31 countries with little promotion. in addition, she has had 3 extremely successful world tours in the past 10 years, selling out dates across the globe (including massive stadiums). and just to show how much of a force she is…her last album (a spanish album) sold over 500,000 copies in FRANCE alone (that’s more than the opening week of lady gaga’s new album in her 3 key markets, the US, the UK & Japan). shakira is coming for those consecutive worldwide hits this time around – she’s worked with a diverse group of musicians across all genres (Afrojack, skrillex, ester dean, Fernando garibay, carlinhos brown, Dave clauss, Sia, Venus-X, Baluji, Lester mendez, Billboard, redone, dr. Luke, max Martin, Benny blanco, tiesto) for this album from all over the world, so you can bet that she’s coming strong with this next album which will only make your comment look even more stupid that it already is.

    She is so beautiful.

  14. Kay November 23, 2013

    Her face reminds me of Mariah Carey

  15. Skyfall November 23, 2013

    2014 is gonna be a good year for music
    Toni Braxton
    Mariah Carey
    Lady Gaga *if she loses the gimmicks and just sing*

    @Charles stop lying Shakira HAS NOT sold more records than Beyonce. Where is her 100 mill grossing Tour? She has not made half as much impact on pop as her. Stop with the delusion Shakira is big in South America not really anywhere else.

    • H** HUSH November 23, 2013

      Lmaoooo you are so delusional. Shakira has sold more records than Beyonce, more importantly albums. Beyonce has never had as big era as Laundry Service. And Shakira is bigger than Beyonce in all European countries beside UK/Ireland. Her Spanish album went Diamond selling over 500 000 in France, more than all Beyonce albums combined. She is bigger in Germany, Italy, Spain which are in top 10 biggest music markets. And Shakira has $100 tour and she achieved it before Beyonce. So stop it., Shakira is only 1 more of Beyonce peers that are more successful than her beside Britney, Christina, P!nk; Avril Lavigne and Alicia in album sales too.

  18. Paul November 23, 2013

    Shakira always brings something different from what we listen to on the radios. 100% excited!!

    • Jason November 24, 2013

      lol funny how shakiras last spanish album will likely outsell artpop at this point though. also, shakira doesn’t need to worry about her next tour not selling (unlike lady gaga) since she has had 3 highly successful world tours & has had a massive, loyal (keyword: loyal) fan base worldwide for 20 years now.

      if she was only popular to hispanics explain how she tours worldwide and usually sells out all dates in countless of countries where spanish isn’t the official language?

      both of her last albums have been multi-platinum & her next album will be a major worldwide release under Live/Roc Nation so be prepared for her to take over again.

      come back when a lady gaga album sells 13+ million though.

  20. Zzzz… November 23, 2013

    Never heard of this chick.

  21. Lolz November 23, 2013

    Lol you people need to stop being blind. Shakira is not a household name like Beyonce, she will never have her impact. You can throw around numbers but stats =/= impact.

  22. Lolz November 23, 2013

    J Lois an absolute flop statistically compared to her but history J Lo>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Shakira.

  23. Lolz November 23, 2013

    in history*

  24. Lolz November 23, 2013

    There’s a difference between being successful, and being an iconic figure of your time.

  25. KING B November 23, 2013

    She reminds me so much of BEYONCE it’s crazy! their look (hair, the way they dress etc..) NO SHADES!
