Shakira Unleashes Audio Stream and Cover Art for New Single 'Loca'


Recorded in English and Spanish, the 'Sale El Sol' first offering has an artwork featuring Shakira wearing glimmering gold get-up and jumping high in the air.

Shakira has a new single called "Loca" and she has revealed it on her official website along with the artwork which is seemingly taken from the video shoot. A remake of El Cata's song "Loca Con Su Tiguere", it is recorded in English with Dizzee Rascal as a featured guest and in Spanish with the addition of El Cata's vocal.

Recorded in the Dominican Republic, Shakira brings her signature fusion of musical identities to this production of "Loca" by blending the horn-heavy elements of meringue with a synthesis of techno percussion laid out to a dance back beat. She will list the song in her upcoming studio album "Sale El Sol".

Commenting on his work with Shakira, Rascal recently told BBC Radio 1, "I know it sounds a bit mad now, but you'll see it and see what's going on. It's me doing something different man, on a merengue tip." He additionally praised the Colombian singer/songwriter, "[She's a] nice girl to work with - it was easy. It was one of those ones off the cuff: 'Oh do you want to work with Shakira, she's in town?... Yeah!' "

Last month, Shakira took to the streets of Barcelona with Dizzee Rascal and a hand-held camera to film visuals for the track. In an attempt to capture the true interpretation of the song, Shakira opted to go away from the traditional big production music video to portray a spirited, fun-filled day being "loca" in the streets with the people of Barcelona.

"Barcelona is one of my favorite cities and has become a second home to me," said Shakira. "The video is just about having fun and being real in this amazing place with real people." She is expected to premiere the clip sometime soon and plans to release the album, which includes 2010 World Cup hit single "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)", in United States on November 2.
