MY THOUGHTS ON… ‘Shakira.’ by Shakira
Shakira’s new self-titled album just dropped a few days ago. Overall I feel like this isn’t a good album. Lyrically, its about love & empowerment.
The first single “Can’t Remember To Forget You” was a hit and i , personally, liked it WAAAAAY better than “Beautiful Liar.” Its fun and catchy. The second single “Empire” sounded a little TOO similar to “Anything Can Happen” by Ellie Goulding.
Some songs on the album are very catchy & make you wanna dance, like “Dare (La La La).” There are songs that make you remember your unfaithful love (“Cut Me Deep”, “You Don’t Care About Me”). And then there are songs that are just fun to sing along like “Loca Por Ti.”
Another thing I liked about this album is that she went back to her roots. She did a lot of acoustic instruments. Sort of a throwback feel. :)
Something I did not like about this album is the cover & the physical copy. The album cover is of Shakira holding a guitar in a bra. Like, honestly!!!! what does you being in a bra have to do with being yourself? The cover/photoshoot could’ve been WAY better.
Overall, its a good album but, I did not really like the album. I felt like it had nothing special to it. Shakira should’ve had more spanish songs. She only had like 2. I’ll occasionaly look up the videos, but its not worth buying/owning.
