The Ever-transforming Colombiana, Shakira, Joins Roc Nation.
Exciting news for Shakira fans! The music-scene is a-buzz with rumors of this new partnership and while our Shaki hasn’t made a public statement yet, all signs point to true! The word on the calle is that Shakira has signed with Jay-Z‘s record label and will be joining Rihanna and Willow Smith as part of the Roc Nation family.
As a long-time Shakira fan, I must say, this is probably the most exciting move for her since she went rubia! From rockera, to cross-over pop to merengue, whether you’ve enjoyed her musical adventures or not, you can’t deny she loves taking risks and pushing the limits of her music. Also, it’s fun to imagine that this business partnership is a result of Shaki making friends with Jay-Z while recording ‘Beautiful Liar” with Beyoncé several years back. 🙂
While I do admit Shakira has been misguided in the past (especially in the realm of her English-language work), I have no doubts she will be in good hands with Jay-Z and her next album is sure to be a power house!
