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.

Like Donde Estan Los Ladrones, SALE EL SOL covers lots of musical ground. I can't say I'm much of a reggaeton fan, but I must admit two of my favorites are Gordita and Rabiosa. Both are kind of obnoxious--but in a GOOD way! If my vote counts for anything, I'd like to see Devocion released as a single--it's "classic" Shakira. There's a LOT to like about this album! Lyrics included in the booklet.
As a note, be aware that the WAKA WAKA versions on this album are remixes and NOT the single/video versions which feature other female vocalists. So, if you're expecting what you've heard on the radio, this isn't it. Although living in the backwoods of the midwest, I hate to report that we don't get to hear Shakira on the radio at all--not even "Hips Don't Lie." So, I'm forced to get my Latin musical fixes off the TV music channels and internet radio feeds!
I give FIVE STARS to SALE EL SOL. I liked it from start to finish and can't even muster a petty gripe about it! In my opinion, as a complete album, it's the best Shakira album of the century--so far!
With this new album, though, she is back to prove once again why she is the best. Her new songs show much of her latin yet rock-infused creations. You can hear a little bit of Pies Descalzos and Donde Estan Los Ladrones in some of these songs. There is an evident Dominican merengue influence as well.
I truly admire her voice and all she can do with it, but I wish she would work on her vocalization. I am originally from her same country, and I have a hard time understanding her lyrics in Spanish. My wife is American and she can't understand her lyrics in English. You pretty much have to follow the booklet to fully understand her lyrics regardless of the language, but nevertheless she is awesome on this new CD. Highly recommended.
Loca is fun and zany, while Rabiosa is cheeky and sexy. Lo Que Ma is a sad and beautiful piano ballad, all grace and softness. There are two versions of Loca, Rabiosa and Waka Waka (Spanish and English). The songs are energetic, beautiful and filled with emotion and life. A must buy.
