After seeing her talents enlisted by the likes of pop divas Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, and Ariana Grande, today comes with reports that Iggy Azalea will now add another big name to her impressive list of guest appearances – Shakira.

As record buyers forgot about her eponymous 10th album, kicked off with the Rihanna-assisted single ‘Can’t Remember To Forget You,’ Shaki is piecing together its yet-titled follow-up with a little help from down under.

Read more down under the jump:

Via Billboard:

Shakira‘s hard at work on her 11th album, reports Spanish newspaper El Mundo, and it’s going to feature a collaboration with Iggy Azalea.

Columbian superstar’s new LP is said to be a multi-national affair, including other team ups with the Mexican rock band Maná, Spanish singer Alejandro Sanz, and English MC Dizzee Rascal. Though, it’s too soon to say whether all those will make the final album or not.”

    I know Shakira is an icon in Latin America, but in the US, she have a hit once every 5 years. Other artist pretty much have to carry her (Wyclef, Lil Wayne/Timberland, Rihanna). So my question is, can Iggy carry her for a hit?

    • Realest January 7, 2015

      Every judge on “The Voice” is music icon, including Shakira. You don’t have to have back to back generic hits or be on top of the charts to have iconic types of works, performances, videos, offerings to the game. People mistake being popular for being iconic

    • JOHNVIDAL January 7, 2015

      Rihanna has sold more albums than Rihanna though. And how did Rihanna carried her when the song was a flop anyway 🙂
      Shakira has been incredibly successful for at least 15 years, the uSA has not been her biggest force, I know. And I don´t really care about her. But you can´t deny she has been slaying seaon after season with hit after hit in big parts of the world.

      • JOHNVIDAL January 7, 2015

        I meant Shakira has sold more albums than Ri. Sorry.

    • Fuse January 7, 2015

      How did Rihanna carry her when the song was a big flop. Girl sit.

  6. DanYiel Teflon January 7, 2015

    Well I Semi like Shakira lol whatever song she’s has out with Beyoncé …I like Iggy’s style she makes cool music in my opinion…

    • Mark111 January 7, 2015

      I forgot about Beyonce.

      • Erotica January 7, 2015

        That just goes to show you how rememberable her music is. Other than “Hips Don’t Lie” and “She Wolf” I’ve never really heard her in the radio.

  7. Cici da baddest January 7, 2015

    Two flops on one track is a disaster. It is gonna flop worst than can’t remember to forget you lol

    • MisdamenorFan January 7, 2015

      No Future…

  8. ok January 7, 2015

    oh no!!!! but they should do it!!! but I’d always wanted a jlo/Nicki collab not cause its jlo(hate her) but cause I want a Spanglish collab like nickis animals verse!!!! but I can’t take shakira doing a collab with Iggy!!! this might make me like Iggy !!! cause I can’t hate shakira!!! yes at shakiras collab Alejandro Sanz I’ve always been a fan of their telenovela songs!!!!
    on another note!! shakira always release an album after every four years! $o dont know but elmundo is somehow just worthless, I don’t trust them for latest Latin news!!
    but their collabo is expected they affiliated to almost same label

  9. MISHKA January 7, 2015

    I guess they gonna show some bootay and lick each other faces because other than that, the duet is already a certifed blahhh.

    We all have love for Shakira though, we’ll always do.

    Iggy, you keep doing your “pop-rap” thing gurl. I think she’ll keep her career on the right track if she’s stays away of serious hip hop, like Rihanna stays away from serious R&B.

  10. Suicide Blonde January 7, 2015

    Shakira’s music is not the same anymore, she’s a sell out, funny how Madonna was criticazed for collab. with younger artists (two times for a lead single, in her whole career) but others get a pass.

    • Erotica January 7, 2015

      Amen! Look at it from a vanity stand point, they were just expecting bigger and better from a legend.

      • Suicide Blonde January 7, 2015

        Love your username, give it up do as i say 😀

    • JOHNVIDAL January 7, 2015

      BOY!!!! LOL You were crazy about her until 3 years ago, when she started a relationship with a football player you don´t like 🙂 How basic. Why is she a sell out now? Cause she did a collabo with Rihanna (nother “artist” you like?).

    • JOHNVIDAL January 7, 2015

      If at least you would have started your bashing campaign when she released Loba or something… cause it was electronic and not Latin pop/rock, which is supposed to be her style…
      It´s just not credible. Same as you did with Gaga. You were still liking her with Born This Way album out and proud (album which is supposed to be the reason why Madonna decided to “satnd up”) and it wasn´t until a year later, when Madonna spoke, that you started the hating campaign.
      In both cases your opinion seems so forced. Like I´m saying, if you would have changed your mind before when the events you don´t like happened… 🙂

    • TRUTH SERUM January 7, 2015

      I agree!! When Shakira started off her sound was completely different.

  11. MariahIsMusic1 January 7, 2015

    I think Iggy might save her.

  12. TMZ January 7, 2015

    The b**** need to collab with Nicki Minaj

  13. gilbert January 7, 2015

    How much did her last album sell to date? can someone tell me pls? thanks 🙂

  14. Musika January 7, 2015

    TSk tsk should’ve gotten Nicki instead cuz she speaks Spanish t!

  15. Flop Who? January 7, 2015

    Nicki and Beyonce are a laughing stock. Bunch of clowns. Have a problem with Iggy cos she collabing with a legend. Stop worrying about Iggy and start worrying about your own favs acting like h*es. *sips Iggy’s success*

  16. ontherun January 7, 2015

    Iggysis always collabing with flops a la rita ora

  17. Paulo January 7, 2015

    I see some folks shading when they favs never got half as much acclaim as Shakira. GLOBAL legend.

    But yes her last album was crap. I’m here for Dizzee and Alejandro again but she can keep this Iggy and Manah collabs.

  18. TheElusiveLamb January 7, 2015

    Interesting. I’ll give it a spin.

  19. Hahaha January 7, 2015

    COl labs have become about WHO’s on the track rather than the music itself

  20. JOHNVIDAL January 7, 2015

    Shakira´s last album really came and went. I never thought we were going to see her being ignored that way. I mean she´s been consistent with her album sales for years and years (like 15 or 20 years), always in the Spanish (and big part of other European countries) and Latin market at least. This time… not even with a single half supported by radio thanks to a collabo (like someone said here the other day, nowadays people focus on who collaborated with who, instead of how good the music actually is). She needs at least a Spanish hit for the clubs next go round.

    • Paulo January 7, 2015

      she needs to stop trying to appease the US market, really… racist Americans will never take her lyrical game seriously anyway and her lyrics were always a big part of her as an artist. this last album was on some Britney Jean s*** it was really awful. I’m here for more Oral Fixation nerdy Shaki

      • Pause January 7, 2015

        The US market is the biggest and most important music market in the world. If you don’t “appease” it, you flop. It’s not American’s faults that Shakira has trouble appealing to them. She’s weird and has a weird voice. Nobody likes weird.

      • Paulo January 7, 2015

        isn’t it weird then that Shakira had sold at least 20 million worldwide before even recording a single song in English… “you know nothing, Jon Snow”.

    • JOHNVIDAL January 7, 2015

      The US market market is very important, you want to have it, but if you don´t, you still can have a very long and successful career: like Shakira or Kylie Minogue for example, who have sold more albums than Rihanna or Katy Perry will ever sell 🙂

  21. blue January 7, 2015

    shakira and alejandro are dynamite, cant wait for that song and the album

  22. TRUTH SERUM January 7, 2015

    Noooo shakira!!! Please go back to your pop rock era.

  23. metzo January 7, 2015

    Shakira is dope I like her

  24. Kitty Puurrzz January 7, 2015

    Everyone wants Iggy on the track & i love it. No matter if you like Iggy or NOT you can’t knock her hustle. I think it’s smart that her team has her hopping on all the big names tracks in hopes to grow her fanbase. Have no fear… Iggy’s next album will be HUGE. She’s getting all the pop girls’ fans to live for her. Who cares if she’s real hip hop when Taylor Swift, Ariana, Britney & now Shakira fans are gonna adore you … Lol

    • Absolved January 7, 2015

      LOL! Last time I checked, she currently had 2 albums out…neither of which are anywhere near the word “huge” and are selling very poorly. So you asserting that her next album is going to be is just you projecting and trying to save face that she’s been losing. If the GP were interested, they’d be supporting her NOW. That’s like buying a lottery ticket, losing, and then saying “Just you wait, the next one is gonna be a winner.” So sad.
      If you actually believe that her making cameo appearances on OTHER peoples songs is going to boost HER own interest, then I got some magic beans I’d like to sell you. Hell, she already worked with Ariana and Jennifer Lopez…and still The New Crisis is in rigor. Care to explain why? Face it, she’s a 15-minutes-of-fame fad. A latter day version of Vanilla Ice.

      • Kitty Puurrzz January 7, 2015

        It’s almost gold. Fancy is 4x platinum. Black Widow 3x platinum. Work platinum. & Beg for it gold. 2AMAs, multiple award nominations & 4 Grammy nods. Doesn’t sound like a bad era to me.

      • Brian310 January 7, 2015

        Last time I checked she has 1 album and a re-release out and her album is creeping it’s way to gold which is good. She is winning so take it and do whatever you need to do to deal with it.

      • XoMoDe January 7, 2015

        “Creeping to gold” after being out for almost a year is not good. 😆

    • Essa January 7, 2015

      “Who cares if she’s real hip hop when Taylor Swift, Ariana, Britney & now Shakira fans are gonna adore you … Lol”


      Are you really that simple?! No one is going to “adore” Iggy just because her people manage to weasel her a guest spot on bigger artists material. This just goes to show what airheads Iggy’s very few fans truly are. They see that her numbers aren’t matching her hype and that she’s been largely unable to attain real prowess through her own music, so now they desperately hope she can leech off others fame (and don’t even care how pathetic it would be for her if she actually could.) I know I should pick on 12 year olds and their naiveté, but damn.

    Sounds interesting.
