Listen: Shakira's New Single "Loca"

Shakira's first single, "Loca," off of her new Spanish-language album Sale el Sol hit the web today. The tune is a catchy merengue remix of the El Cata song "Loca Con Su Tiguere."

She's released the single in English with a verse featuring British grime rapper Dizzee Rascal and in Spanish featuring El Cata's original vocals. Last month, Shakira got into some hot water after she took to the streets of Barcelona with Rascal and a camera crew to film the video." [Shakira's] a nice girl to work with—it was easy," said Rascal. "It was one of those ones off the cuff: 'Oh do you want to work with Shakira? She's in town... Yeah!' "

"The video is just about having fun and being real in this amazing place with real people," Shakira said of the video, which will premiere in the next few weeks.

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
