Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 (English: Oral Fixation, Vol. 1) is the sixth studio album by Colombian recording artist Shakira. It was released on 3 June 2005 by Epic Records. After attaining international success in 2001 with her first English record, Laundry Service, Shakira wanted to release a fifth Spanish-language project as its followup. In the vein of her earlier work, Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 is a Latin pop album. Shakira enlisted Rick Rubin as executive producer, also working with Gustavo Cerati, Lester Mendez, Luis F. Ochoa and Jose "Gocho" Torres.

At its release Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 received generally favorable reviews from music critics, who complimented Shakira's evolution from her earlier work. The album debuted at number four on the US Billboard 200, with first-week sales of 157,000 copies. It set a record as the highest debut for a full-length Spanish-language album in the country which still stands. Internationally, the album topped the charts in Argentina, Germany, Mexico and Spain. Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 was the Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album at the 2006 Grammy Awards, and the Album of the Year and the Best Female Pop Vocal Album at the Latin Grammy Awards. Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 became the highest selling Latin pop album of the decade in the United States and the second highest selling Latin album overall. As of May 2013, over four million copies of the album were sold worldwide and it is one of the best-selling Latin albums in the United States.

Four singles were released to promote the album. Although its lead single ("La Tortura") was the only track to reach the US Billboard Hot 100, the follow-up singles "No", "Día de Enero" and "Las de la Intuición" enjoyed moderate success on the Hot Latin Songs, Tropical Songs and Latin Pop Airplay charts. In November 2005 Shakira supplemented the album with her second English-language record, Oral Fixation, Vol. 2. The two were packaged together as a box set and released as Oral Fixation, Vol. 1 & 2 in January 2007. The projects were promoted with the Oral Fixation Tour in 2006 and 2007, which visited the Americas, Africa, Asia and Europe. A performance in Miami, Florida was filmed and released as a live album in November 2007.

Background[edit]

After achieving international success in 2001 with her first English album, Laundry Service, Shakira released a Spanish-language record as its followup (her first since 1998's Dónde Están los Ladrones?). Having co-written nearly sixty songs for the project, she decided to divide the release into two volumes and put herself "on the mission of selecting [her] favorite ones" to record. Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 contains all Spanish-language songs and Oral Fixation, Vol. 2 features all English-language tracks.[1] Shakira initially said that the second volume would have a "completely new repertory of songs",[1] although the completed album included two English translations of songs from the first record.[2] It was reissued in 2006 as an expanded version with an additional translated recording and her future international-hit single, "Hips Don't Lie".[3] When recording the albums, she worked with previous collaborators Lester Mendez and Luis Fernando Ochoa and new partners Gustavo Cerati and Jose "Gocho" Torres.[4]

Cover art[edit]

The album's cover was influenced by the biblical figure of Eve (pictured).

The artwork for both Oral Fixation albums was inspired by Eve, the first woman; Shakira said "[she wanted] to attribute to Eve one more reason to bite the forbidden fruit, and that would be her oral fixation" and that "[she always felt] that [she has] been a very oral person. [It is her] biggest source of pleasure". The first volume's cover sees Shakira holding a baby girl in her arms; the artwork for the second album shows a nude Shakira (covered by tree branches), with the infant sitting in the tree. She stated that both covers alluded to psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud's theory that infants begin discovering the world through their mouths during the oral stage of psychosexual development.[5]

For Jon Pareles of The New York Times, "For obvious reasons, it's eye-catching, as was the cover of the Spanish-language companion album, "Fijación Oral, Vol. 1".[6] In Middle Easts version of the album, Shakira was covered up with leaves.[7] Complex Magazine selected "Oral Fixation" album cover as the eleventh "sexiest album cover of all time", writing that it is "the hottest portrayal of Eve in the Garden of Eden we can imagine."[8] Maxim also listed the album's cover as one of the "sexiest album covers", writing that, "A naked girl holding up an apple in a garden is played out, but not when the girl is hip-shaking Shakira. Damn, it could happen all over again, couldn't it?."[9]

Composition[edit]

Sample of Shakira's "La Tortura", the lead single from Fijación Oral, Vol. 1. The song has a back-and-forth dialogue between Shakira and Alejandro Sanz in the chorus.

Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 is a Latin pop album.[10] The introductory track, "En Tus Pupilas" ("In Your Pupils"), incorporates folk music styles[11] and its opening verse includes French-language lyrics.[4] "La Pared" ("The Wall") has been compared stylistically to the 1980s duo Eurythmics.[11] "La Tortura" ("The Torture") features Spanish singer-songwriter Alejandro Sanz, with elements of Colombian cumbia music, dancehall and electronica.[12] "Obtener un Sí" ("Obtain a Yes") is a bossa nova song with cha-cha elements against an orchestral background.[12] "Día Especial" ("Special Day") features Argentinean singer-songwriter Gustavo Cerati on guitar.[13]

The sixth track, "Escondite Inglés", has a new wave feel.[12] "No" also features Cerati on guitar, using a simple melody to emphasize Shakira's vocals.[11] "Las de la Intuición" ("The Ones with the Intuition") has synthpop elements,[12] while "Día de Enero" ("January Day") has been compared to Mexican singer-songwriter Natalia Lafourcade.[11] "Lo Imprescindible" ("Bare Essentials") has German-language verses in which Shakira lyrically expresses "Come baby come. Don't ever leave me".[14] The disc concludes with an acoustic version of "La Pared" and the Shaketon remix of "La Tortura".[15]

Singles[edit]

"La Tortura" was released as the lead single from Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 on 12 April 2005.[16] It features Spanish singer-songwriter Alejandro Sanz, and was praised for its production and reggaeton influence.[12] "La Tortura" was the only single from the album to chart on the US Billboard Hot 100 (peaking at number twenty-three), and reached number one on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs, Tropical Songs, and Latin Pop Airplay charts.[17] The song set a record for the most weeks at number one,[18] and additionally became the best-performing Latin single of the year.[19] The track was eventually certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shipments of 100,000 copies.[20] Internationally, "La Tortura" topped the Hungarian Rádiós Top 40 and the Spanish and Venezuelan singles charts.[21][22][23] Its music video was directed by Michael Haussman, depicting a fictionally-romantic Shakira and Sanz.[24]

The followup singles were also successful. The second single, "No", features Argentinian singer-songwriter Gustavo Cerati and reached numbers two and eleven, respectively, on the Billboard Latin Pop Songs and Latin Songs charts.[17][25] The video was filmed in a black-and-white effect,[26] and was directed by Jaume de Laiguana.[27] After the release of "Don't Bother" as the lead single from Oral Fixation, Vol. 2 in late 2005,[28] "Dia de Enero" was the third single from Fijación Oral, Vol. 1.[29] It peaked at numbers seven and twenty-nine on the Billboard Latin Pop Songs and Latin Songs charts, respectively.[17] Like "No", its accompanying video was directed by de Laiguana. The clip refers to Shakira's then-boyfriend Antonio de la Rúa as she writes the letters "S y A" in a heart drawn in the sand.[30]

Following the release of "Hips Don't Lie" and "Illegal" as the second and third singles from Oral Fixation, Vol. 2,[31][32]

The fourth and final single, "Las De La Intuición", reached numbers eleven and thirty-one, respectively, on the Billboard Latin Pop Songs and Latin Songs charts.[17][33] Its video shows Shakira in a purple wig.[34] Shakira later recorded an English-language version of the song, titled "Pure Intuition".[35]

Main article: Oral Fixation Tour

To promote Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 and Oral Fixation, Vol. 2, Shakira began her Oral Fixation Tour on 14 June 2006 at the Feria De Muestras in Zaragoza, Spain.[36] With assistance from the Creative Artists Agency, she visited twenty-seven cities and performed forty-one shows across five continents.[37] The tour was additionally sponsored by Spanish automobile manufacturer SEAT, with whom Shakira also collaborated to support her Pies Descalzos Foundation.[35] The tour concluded on 9 July 2007 at the Turkcell Kuruçeşme Arena in Istanbul, Turkey.[38] It grossed over $42 million in North and Latin America, and $100 million worldwide.[39] The set list consisted primarily of Spanish-language songs, and included singles from her earlier career.[40]

In November 2007 Epic Records released the Oral Fixation Tour live album on Blu-ray Disc, which was filmed during a December 2006 show in Miami, Florida. William Ruhlmann of Allmusic gave it a positive review, complimenting Shakira's vocals and dancing talent.[41]

At Metacritic (which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics) Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 received an average score of 79 based on 13 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[42] Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic said that "it's hard to wait for Oral Fixation, Vol. 2 to arrive", given the strength of the "commercial savvy and smart writing" displayed in the first volume.[10] Matt Cibula of PopMatters shared a similar sentiment, adding that his excitement about Oral Fixation, Vol. 2 is a "massive understatement".[11] Entertainment Weekly's Ernesto Lechner felt that Shakira "has found herself again" by "placing her operatic vocalizing at the service of Spanish poetry", adding that this was her strongest album to date.[43]

The Guardian's Dave Simpson noted that "the songs are catchy, with melodies good enough to tempt non-Spanish speakers to sing along".[44] Jon Pareles of The New York Times described the album as "blissfully pan-American", elaborating that "for Shakira it's all pop, taut structures for volatile passion".[12] Barry Walters of Rolling Stone said that executive producer Rick Rubin helped "restore Shakira's artistic integrity by keeping the industry at bay".[13] Yahoo! Music's Tom Townsend praised Shakira for being "wide awake and, as they used to say in Smash Hits, back, back, BACK!"[46] Paste's Mark Kemp gave it a mixed review, saying that the record was "stronger overall than Laundry Service but not as warm as Dónde Están los Ladrones?"[45]

Legacy[edit]

Grammy Award—trophy with horn speaker and turntable
Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 earned Shakira the Grammy Award for Best Latin Rock or Alternative Album at the 2006 ceremony.

Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic said that releasing the Spanish-language Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 after the success of the English-language Laundry Service was a "sharp move", complimenting the album for demonstrating that Shakira "can not only return to her roots, but expand upon them". He described "La Tortura" as a "natural for American radio", and felt that the parent album generated anticipation for the upcoming Oral Fixation, Vol. 2.[10] Writing for PopMatters, Matt Cibula praised the album for its musical departure from Laundry Service, applauding the integration of subtle samples across several songs as "great nods to the sounds of the 1980s".[11] Dave Simpson of The Guardian compared Shakira to a "Latin American Madonna", describing her vocals as reminiscent of "Cher and Hazel O'Connor, produced by Julio Iglesias".[44]

Jon Pareles of The New York Times found Shakira's "smart or ambitious" image to be uncharacteristic of a sex symbol. He praised the versatility of her multilingual lyrics and her experimentation in a number of genres, citing the "multiplicity" in "the arrangements, in the mixed emotions of the lyrics, [and] in Shakira's mercurial voice".[12] Writing for Paste, Mark Kemp complimented Shakira for dispelling notions she is"the Latin Britney, the female Ricky Martin [and] the pretty pop tart who sings in Spanish and sounds like Alanis"; he compared the mix of musical elements in Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 to a Pop-Tart with a "rich and nutritious filling".[45] Tom Townsend of Yahoo! Music called her "the greatest pop star we have", comparing her "consuming artistry" to that of Madonna and Prince. He credited the album for inspiring a revival of pop music, saying that the release proved that the genre "wasn't dead, just sleeping".[46]

Shakira's international success was solidified with Fijación Oral, Vol. 1's strong commercial performance. After it debuted at number 4 on the US Billboard 200 and became the highest-debuting full-length Spanish album in the country, her label Epic Records called her "the biggest female crossover artist in the world".[47] The album remains her second-highest-charting release in the nation, behind Laundry Service's peak position at number 3.[17] According to Billboard, it was the second best-selling Latin album of the decade in the US after Barrio Fino by Daddy Yankee.[72]

On January 23, 2007, Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 and Oral Fixation, Vol. 2 were released as a three-disc box set, titled Oral Fixation, Vol. 1 & 2. Each record was on a separate disc, and was packaged with a DVD featuring music videos and live recordings of album tracks.[73] The compilation peaked at numbers 13 and 27 on the Billboard Latin Pop Albums and Top Latin Albums charts.[74]

Accolades[edit]

At the 2005 Billboard Music Awards, Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 was the Latin Pop Album of the Year.[75] At the 2005 Mexican Oye! Awards, the album was the Pop Album of the Year by a Female Artist.[76] At the 2005 Premios Shock awards ceremony, it received an award for "Album of the Year".[77] The album was the Best Latin Rock or Alternative Album at the 2006 Grammy Awards,[78] and was Album of the Year, Best Engineered Album and the Best Female Pop Vocal Album at the Latin Grammy Awards of 2006.[79] That year, at the 13th Billboard Latin Music Awards, the album was the best Latin Pop Album by a Female.[80] It was the Pop Album of the Year at the 18th Lo Nuestro Awards.[81] Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 received an ALMA Award as Spanish Album of the Year.[82] At the 2006 Groovevolt Music Awards, it was named Best Latin Album.[83] At the Colombian Nuestra Tierra award ceremony, it was nominated Best Album of the Year which went to Fonseca for Corazón.[84]
