Yeah, you read that right: SHAKIRA. I’m the first to admit that she’s an unlikely artist choice for ‘Buddha, but seeing as she’s gone all electropop for her latest single (and upcoming album, for that matter), She Wolf, I’m willing to admit to give it a go. And I’ll admit it’s a damn catchy tune. Oddly enough I far prefer the Spanish language version*, but for some asinine reason Shakira is yet another artist who has decided that allowing your clips to be embedded is tantamount to letting you rifle through her wallet**.
The song is earworm-y enough to warrant some love, but what really earns the post is the choreography, which rather beautifully showcases Shakira’s considerable dance ability.
*I don’t have a good explanation for it beyond the fact that for some reason her voice really bugs me when she sings in English, but I’m okay with it when she sings in Spanish. Weird, I know.
**As you can see from the ‘buddha hosted version, I’m totally down with rifling through her wallet. No, that’s not innuendo, you dirty dirty person you.
