Shakira Reveals Album Title Will Be ‘Shakira’


Shakira revealed in an open letter on her Facebook her upcoming album will be self-titled.

The Columbian songstress wrote to her fans: “When the time came to put a name to this album, I realized that it’s not exactly a thematic album … It’s also not necessarily conceptual, as some of my albums have been in the past. In the end, what I realized is that throughout the course of creating this body of work, I learned a lot about myself.”

Resulting in the singer to name her upcoming tenth album simply, Shakira, which we’ve gotten a taste of with new track featuring Rihanna, “Can’t Remember to Forget You“.

We’re expecting a broad range of jams as Shakira goes on to reveal in her open letter: “I am sometimes extremely sensitive, sometimes upbeat, others dreamy and romantic, and even at times a little melodramatic.”

And despite having spent two years on this album, and been releasing albums since she was 14, Shakira says making music will never bore her.

“There are so many things about the process of making music that keeps me wondering about the mysteries of music, I guess that’s what keeps me going.”
