Shakira’s first English-Language album since She Wolf is a full-fledged mix of pop, electric and country. Cut Me Deep is a Ska-inflected collaboration with the band Magic!
The single 23, an ode to her baby daddy Gerard Pique, sounds like a Latin-infused version of a Taylor Swift song.
Shakira’s collaboration with Rihanna on Can’t Remember to Forget You doesn’t seem to resurrect the success Shakira had with Beautiful Liar with Beyonce.
