Fourteen years later and five albums under the arm the story seems to be the same. Or almost, at least. She Wolf finds her at a point in her life where everything has fallen finally into place, but maybe this has not quite sparked the flame to create an outstanding record. To put it simply, not even her last song in English (that sexy duet with Beyonce) could have prompted me to think twice whether to continue listening or turn off the stereo.
There are many factors that contribute to make Shewolf an utter disappointment for any true fan. First, she cannot convey in English what she transmits when she sings in Spanish. That has been a fact with very few exceptions (Hips don't lie and Underneath your clothes) that no matter how much we try to defend, has no escaping. Her voice finds a wall every time she delivers her verses in a foreign language and, in this case, the added synthesizers and dance beats help no further.
Second, she has allowed individual producers to slaughter her unique style hoping to obtain a more universal appeal. Unfortunately, that gamble results in a lifeless performance that any Britney could replicate.
Third, Shakira has never needed to prove herself to anyone, but in She Wolf she sounds as if every note was written to do so.Read more ›
A note to the She Wolf haters: did you somehow mistake Laundry Service for Hamlet? Get a grip. She is still at the head of the pack, and will very likely remain there despite any number of personal reinventions. Pick up the soundtrack to Love in the Time of Cholera--that is very recent new music from Shakira, and it is much more traditional, maybe you'll like it better. Personally I can listen to Did It Again a thousand times in a row before I start getting sleepy. And have you seen that video?! Oh my god she can dance like no other. Those hips don't lie.

I love that you could dance to any song on this album, but still feel connected to the album. It is absolutely original and she always did find a way to reinvent herself. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Gabriela

|She Wolf CD||
Thanks for the scoop. Seems like everyone else is a blind fan. This CD seems like a continuation of the direction her music has gone in since moving the production from South America to North America. Which is to say that it has changed so much it might as well be a different...

I was a little disappointed too but then realized this is the import version. There isn't a US release yet.

No, this won't be it. I believe it is still undetermined but if it were gonna be any of her existing pictures/covers then it would most likely be the cover from her single She Wolf. The one with her in the cage. I am almost positive it won't be either of the two. It should be released soon.

Yes. She Wolf is not Hips Don't Lie. Thank goodness. I listen to that song now and it's just like . . . eh. She Wolf is a new sound for Shakira and I enjoy it. And I just saw the video for Did It Again and I'm sold. I'll be picking it up.
