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.
