New Song: Shakira – ‘Empire’

Published: Monday 24th Feb 2014 by Sam

With the release of Shakira‘s new self-titled album drawing nearer, the Colombian beauty builds heightened buzz with the roll-out of new promo song ‘Empire’.

The anthemic cut follows official single ‘Can’t Remember To Forget You (ft. Rihanna)’, which folk ironically forget quite quickly.

Can this new number re-rev up interest ahead of the LP’s March 25th release? You decide after the jump…

Your thoughts?

    I’ll start watching the voice now that she is on it and not ButcherTina.

  3. HIMEROS February 24, 2014

    I love it. It’s kind of a big departure from all of her previous efforts.

    ^^^^^oh please shut up! Crtfy is almost at 200 million views and she owes that to the navy no one would have checked for her without rih on the track.

  12. Molly February 24, 2014

    I don’t like her voice

  13. Stephy Tha Lambily February 24, 2014

    Wait, when did Christina A. become a legend?

  14. Molly February 24, 2014

    @Stephy they think cause Britneys a legend so is Xtina when its not the case.

  15. xtina 1 February 24, 2014

    um….Molly, Go Pop yourself and die you irrelevant b****!! Britney can’t touch Christina on vocals.

  16. JJ February 24, 2014

    Probably the same people which helped Waka Waka become a worldwide would. And a lot of fans of Shakira, including me, would rather prefer she didn’t get involved with a trashy singer.

  17. JER February 24, 2014

    This song sounds like a joke. Shakira’s voice and accent have only gotten worse with time Ch……….. BYE!

  18. J.E February 24, 2014

    Personality Wise, I like Shakira. @ slayriah… At least we can say that Christina did better coaching than Mariah when they are both in a reality show.
    I like Britney and overall (sales wise she did better than Xtina) however Xtina had multiple 1’s, grammy and greater debut sales (1st week) on her Debut Era. Britney is a Legend and so is Christina, inspiring most of the singer now. End of story.

    I absolutely love it! Shakira is a beast though, musically. Her concepts and her originality! She doesn’t care either, she puts out what she thinks is dope. I love it!

  20. metzo February 25, 2014

    LOLLL. is this song a joke or is It forreal a single?

  21. metzo February 25, 2014

    LOLLL. is this song a joke or is It forreal a single? …

  22. Stephy Tha Lambily February 25, 2014

    So wait…

    When exactly did Britney Spears become a legend? huh

  23. HIMEROS February 25, 2014

    @Stephy, Britney is a legend because doesn’t she too have a vanguard award and a diamond? She may have flopped this time around but Britney is still a legend

  24. JOHNVIDAL February 25, 2014

    See? Much better with just Shakira displaying her talent, without Rihanna, a political move that didn´t even work. Shakira´s voice is weird and I know many people don´t like it, but she has a voice, unlike others. Also songwriting skills and unique style. Her best work keeps being the pre mega hit that was her first English album. Her Spanish material before debuting in English is her best.
    @stephy I agree, those two are not legends.

  25. dohdohsaidwhat February 25, 2014

    wait what miss me with that. Shakira sells way more singles and has more number 1 albums than Rihanna check her catalog boo. before you try and come for the one who started it all.

  26. Ac February 25, 2014

    Sit ur ass down! Did Rihanna got those 100 millions views for that Pour it up video in such a short time?? NO. And she is is wearing less clothes in that video…so, Can’t remember to forget actually got those millions in less than two weeks thanks to both Shakira and Rihanna. And let me remind that Shakira is the second most popular singer on facebook, right behind Rihanna. Ur fave has never looked so classy in a steamy video. Thanks to Shakira of course.
