Is Shakira ready to dabble in some Euro techno beats? It certainly looks that way. Famed Dutch DJ Afrojack recently told reporters that he and Shaki are collaborating on a “top secret” project.
“I’ve been in the studio now a couple times with Shakira,” Afrojack told Billboard. “She’s really nice and that’s why we started working together. She has a unique voice and really loves the new dance thing. Like when a beat drops, she’s feeling it!”
As we all know, Shakira is due for another album. Her last record, Sale el Sol, sold over four million copies since its 2010 release. Now two years later, the time is right for her to drop some more crossover singles.
And Afrojack may be just the right guy to help her do it. His contributions to Beyonce’s “Run The World” helped propel it to the #1 slot on the Billboard Club charts. He also just delivered an incredible new set at Miami’s Ultra Festival, which may be a taste of what’s to come with Shaki.
