Sale el Sol was recorded in the Bahamas, London, Barcelona, and the Dominican Republic. The title track, Sale el Sol was co-written with her friend and collaborator, Luis Fernando Ochoa. Shakira dedicated this song to her close friend Gustavo Cerati during the Rock in Rio show in Madrid in June, 2010. Shakira teamed up with El Cata, a famous Dominical reggaeton artist for the tracks Rabiosa and Loca con el Tigre , adding an urban edge (twist) to these up-tempo dance tracks. Gordita is a collaboration with René Pérez, frontman and contentious lyricist from Calle 13. In the track René admits that he liked Shakira more with dark hair and a bit heavier ( me gustabas cuando estabas mas gordita/con el pelito negrito/ y la cara redondita ) They performed the song together at Rock in Rio in Madrid, and the Glastonbury Music Festival in June of 2010. Mariposa is a ballad which features legendary guitarist , Gustavo Cerati, as well as the renowned pianist Alejandro Menéndez. Gustavo Cerati also plays guitar on the song Tu Boca . Sale el Sol reminds fans of Shakira s talent for writing songs that leave a mark on their generation with her inspired lyrics and unforgettable style.

Top Customer Reviews
I have to say that I am very impressed with this new album. I enjoyed this album since my very first listen. As many other reviewers have stated, Shakira does return to some of her previous roots but at the same time offers something very fresh and new. This album has to be Shakira's most experimental as she explores different genres to bring us a good blend of music. The title track, Sale El Sol, explains that there is hope after our moments of sorrow and that after the storm, the sun comes out. Antes De Las Seis channels the mellow songs featured on Ladrones/Fixation and talks about a person who is being vulnerable and giving their all only to be shun by the other person.
The album also features some fantastic dance songs which are absolutely infectious and impossible not to dance along to. Loca, Addicted To You, Gordita, and Rabiosa are very fast paced and full of energy. Shakira teases with El Cata, Calle 13, and Pitbull to bring a fun filled atmosphere to the album. These songs are meant to make the listener feel as if they were on the dance floor in the way La Tortura, Loba, and Ojos Asi previously did.
Shakira continues to demonstrates that she has a beautiful voice and is able to convey such emotion in songs such as Lo Que Mas where she sings about making the difficult decision to move on from a broken relationship. Devocion and Tu Boca feature a very edgy sound and loud vocals by Shakira which were evident in her Ladrones album while Mariposas brings some of the style that she displayed in Laundry Service.
Sale El Sol also contains remixed versions of Waka Waka and a wonderful cover of the XX's, Islands. Shakira's version has a faster pace and sounds more uplifting than the original.
This album serves as a great summary of the previous albums she has done in the past. Rather than creating a sequel, she borrows elements from past albums to create Sale El Sol. This album has a little bit of everything and doesn't fail to please the listener. Whether you're a die hard fan or a new listener, you will be able to enjoy this album and appreciate the effort that Shakira put into the album.
Sale El Sol is a beautiful set of songs that reminds us how diverse Shakira is. She is not afraid to explore different musical styles and this album is a perfect example. Shakira demonstrates that she will not settle with only one style and will continue to challenge herself to explore other areas. No matter what the next album will bring, Shakira will continue to shine...
After Laundry Service, I thought Shakira will never go back to her roots.
Laundry Service was still a Shakira album, however she missed the Latino flav.
She nearly hit them with Fijacion Oral Vol. 1 but it was not exactly that same, as she was
in the 90'.
If I did know the date of the release of Sale El Sol, I would definetly think it's one of her
But hey! It's 2010!
And damn, she got back to her roots like crazy.
The album is a masterpiece.
It contains the rock,soft-ballad and Latin power Shakira had since her beginning.
The dance song Loca is great as a fun song, however if you listen to the whole album you will notice it is one of the least favorites.
The album begins with Sale El Sol, which totally reminds me on Pies Descalzos album.
Antes De Las Seis is one of the highlights, it is a beautiful written and vocally performed ballad.
Gordita has an amazing reggae beat, a pretty unusual sound.
Lo Que Mas, is as Antes De Las Seis another great ballad, specially if you speak Spanish and know the lyrics.
THE highlight as for me right now is Devocion.
It is perfect. It contains great lyrics, it's deep,aggressive, sad, rock-influent and it's just WOW.
On this song, you can perfectly see, Shakira is a great vocal performance.
The album also contains the worldwide hit Waka, Waka.
Forget all the mainstream music produced by same producers as Dr. Luke or Max Martin (nothing against them, but hey, it's little bit too much on the radio from them)
and buy the real music!
-Antes de las seis
The rest are decent. Anyway, if you are a Shaki fan, you will see by listening to the album that she really tried to make an album for those who have followed her throughout her career. It is a rebirth of the Shakira from the beginning.
