Shakira has reportedly signed an Arabic-American singer to team up with her in an Arabic-Stereotype single.
Ambassador for Latin pop music, Shakira, has reportedly revealed that she is now in the recording room to get her new song done. An Arabic-American singer named Dania Youssef is chosen to be her partner in the not-yet-titled song.
The song, that is still in the work, is written in half English and half Arabic lyrics, which will see Arab world from a positive point of view. Furthermore, an Egyptian composer Mohamed Saad is reportedly writing the Arabic portion of the song, as well as the music.
The rumor continues floating with a claim that a U.S. director is already hired to film a music video for the song, which is reported to encourage tolerance and peace. "The video will be shot in the United Arab Emirates and is expected to premiere before the end of the year," a source says in a press release. However, there is no available statement from Shakira's representative firm.
