|Singles from She Wolf|
She Wolf (Spanish: Loba) is the sixth studio album by Colombian singer-songwriter Shakira, released on October 9, 2009, by Epic Records and Sony Music Latin. It was her final studio album for Epic Records and Sony Music Latin, marking the end of a 18 year recording history with SML and 8 years with Epic. The album sees Shakira shift from Latin pop and pop rock to electropop while also exploring dancehall. She co-wrote and co-produced all of the album, apart from her second US single, which was produced by Pharrell Williams and his production outfit.
The album was preceded by the title single "She Wolf" ("Loba", in Spanish-speaking countries) which reached top 10 worldwide. "Did It Again" ("Lo Hecho Está Hecho" for Latin America) was released internationally as the second single whilst the US and Canada received the Timbaland-produced "Give It Up to Me". According to Nielsen Soundscan, She Wolf has sold 410,000 copies in the United States and estimated 2 million worldwide.
Background and production 
When speaking about the album Shakira said "I felt very curious and intrigued about the electro-pop world and everything it has to offer, I wanted to make sure that this album was very bassy and that the kicks hit really hard, and I wanted to concentrate on the beat. But my music, to a certain extent, is very complex -- because I always try to experiment with sounds from other parts of the world." In addition to the disco-influenced title track, there's "Good Stuff", a synthed-out snake-charmer punctuated by ululating and staccato beats; "Long Time", a percussive midtempo groove with a Colombian Gaita bridge; and "Why Wait", a dancefloor scorcher by way of Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir". (Shakira worked on the arrangement with Hossam Ramzy, who had worked on "Kashmir" with Jimmy Page and Robert Plant.) "It's an electronic album generally speaking, but it does have different organic instruments that, combined with the synthesizers, create a different sort of ambience," Shakira said. "You've got to put together a nice meal and make sure the spices don't take over the main ingredient. And at the end of the day, it gives a nice flavor in your mouth." Shakira told Rolling Stone magazine that the album was recorded by Gustavo Celis during a series of 12-hour-a-day sessions mostly in the Bahamas with John Hill, Pharrell and other collaborators. The hard work helped transform her sound from the slithery Latin-tinged pop of “Hips Don’t Lie” to something more glitchy, buzzing and fiercely danceable. "It's very electronic and dance-oriented, club-oriented. It’s designed for people to have fun and enjoy themselves and forget about their troubles and the crisis,” says Shakira. She also says that she always wanted to do a bass-heavy record without losing “the fusion, which is something I’m always very interested in—bringing in elements from different cultures. So you’re going to find Colombian, Middle Eastern influences, but always with the synthesizers as a dominant element...The worst that can happen to me is repeating myself and repeating the same old formula,” Shakira tells Rolling Stone, adding that she takes a long time between records “because I really want to be sure every detail makes me happy". Shakira also said that she was very pleased to work once again with Wyclef Jean. She attributes some of their creative synergy to the fact that they "both come from the developing world and we have been close to extreme poverty.” Pharrell forced her to step outside of her box and learn to work more quickly, while Hill introduced her to electro acts like Crystal Castles: “They’re a good example of how electronica can take you to different places". Shakira worked with Timbaland to produce her second US single "Give It Up To Me" which was originally recorded for his own album Timbaland Presents Shock Value 2. Rolling Stone magazine confirmed that the song initially featured Timbaland rapping but his verse was replaced with Flo Rida and then later Lil Wayne. President of Epic Records Amanda Ghost, said of the recording "everyone’s breath was taken away when Lil Wayne said he wanted to jump on the record." The decision for Shakira to record the song is responsible for the delay of the album's release in the US. In an interview with El Universal Shakira went on to speak about the album. She mentioned 9 of the 12 songs which appear on the track-listing as well as two others an English song titled "Send Me an Angel" and a Spanish song "Devoción" featuring Gustavo Cerati. For undisclosed reasons these two song are not included in the album. "Devocion" was later included in her next studio album, Sale El Sol.

The title track "She Wolf" is a sleek, hi-NRG/Italo throwback that's drenched in disco strings and which disguises Shakira's quirky vocal tics with heaps of robot effects. The music video was shot in Los Angeles; however, it takes place on a weary night in the city of San Francisco.The song's lyrics walk a fine line between campy and really campy ("I'm starting to feel just a little abused like a coffee machine in an office"), and Shakira's ability to make likening oneself to a kitchen appliance sexy with just a simple moan is unrivaled. "Did It Again" is a bawdy electro-number where the Neptunes get bubbly synths and military drum patterns surround Shakira’s vixen-as-tease lyrics—arguably Shakira’s strongest suit—the whole thing perfectly apt for a weekend club excursion". "Why Wait" relies heavily on the Neptunes’ trademark “dry drum” sound, using their old textural paintbrushes, while it is propelled by a driving 4/4 stomp, "Why Wait" has a Middle Eastern sound to it. The Wyclef Jean track "Spy", meanwhile, carries on the disco-update theme of “She Wolf”, as thundering string quartets swirl around Shakira’s call-and-response vocals with Jean. The pulsating John Hill electro-number "Men in this Town" is an ode to L.A. nightlife crammed with references to Matt Damon, Angelina Jolie, SkyBar, and the Standard Hotel. It was also described as an 1980s-style electro stomper, a bit reminiscent of No Doubt". "Long Time" and "Good Stuff" are filled with a hybrid of dancehall and Latin-pop rhythms. While 'Long Time' was described as "a sparse, carnivaly party tune"; 'Good Stuff' is a midtempo track also with a Middle Eastern feel and a chorus that's a bit 1980s radio. In "Mon Amour", a noisy hunk of stadium rock, Shakira wishes her ex and his new girlfriend a terrible vacation in Paris. "Hope the French fleas eat you both alive," she sings, "And your room smells, and the toilet doesn't flush, and the locals treat you mean, and the service takes too long..." 'Gypsy', an Amanda Ghost co-write got a countryish feel to it, complete with mandolin and strings."
|The New York Times||(unfavorable)|
The reception to 'She Wolf' was positive. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 72. David Balls of Digital Spy gave the album 4 out of 5 stars and said "At just over 30 minutes in length, this is a bantamweight boxer of a pop album – a bit on the slight side, but there's barely an ounce of fat on it. ... Her ability to mix this album's eclectic range of influences into a listenable, cohesive collection of songs should be ample compensation. Holding it all together, of course, is that distinctive voice." Niel McCormick from The Telegraph agreed, saying, "In her quest to extend her appeal from her Spanish language base to global superstardom, there is a sense that Shakira is genuinely trying to invent something original. The 32-year-old’s Latin rhythms, vocal tricks and ear for eccentric hooklines have lifted her out of pop rock homogeneity. ... The result is a groovier, more modern and electro-flavoured collection, yet it is Shakira’s weird mash of melodies, multiplicitous vocals and man-eating lyrics that define its character. ... When it comes together, the result can be so inventive and surprising you can hardly believe your ears." Dan Cairns of Times Online said, "In a world not short of female singers who foreground their sexuality while in the process obscuring their identity, Shakira stands out.She was on Disney Channel's Wizards of Waverly Place. She sang with Selena Gomez (Alex in the show). They sang 'Gypsy' together. She defines the terms of her sexuality, she’s also defending her inalienable right to be, well, a bit silly. She remains poised on the brink of perpetual laughter, it shouldn’t detract from the meticulous attention to detail that distinguishes this as a superior pop album." Johnny Davis from The Guardian also commended the album by saying "Sure, a combination of Latin licentiousness and English self-taught via Bob Dylan lyrics and a thesaurus means you're never quite sure the Colombian singer knows what she's saying, but third English language album proves she does. The music's Pharrell Williams-assisted dancefloor pop; the words entirely Shakira's. Preposterously brilliant." Mike Diver from BBC Music echoed previous reviews stating that "the darkness that creeps in from the edges of this record is always kept at bay by playful and inventive instrumentation and quirky wordplay from the singer, at her best when making like Mariah Carey after a quarter-bottle of tequila and a weekend lost in the rainforest: you sense she could hit the highest of notes if she wanted, but a deliberate weariness keeps her histrionics in check. One can conclude She Wolf is perhaps the most enjoyably varied pop album of 2009." On the Allmusic review, the album received 4.5 out of 5 stars. "This time, she focuses on one sound only: a pulsating electro-disco that crosses all boundaries and welcomes all nationalities. Such concentration behooves Shakira, freeing her to release her inner She Wolf, a wild wacko who's as coo coo as she is carnal. ... this blend of cheerful weirdness and sick beats — often supplied by the Neptunes, delivering tough, sensual rhythms in a way they haven’t in a long time, but also John Hill and Wyclef Jean — is giddily addicting, a celebration of all the strange sensuality that comes out at night". Jim Cantiello from MTV News called the album "jaw-droppingly wild and deliciously unpredictable" and even went as far as saying "is one of my favorite pop albums of the year (if not the decade — yes, I said decade)" Tamara Palmer from Metromix said "it’s all about those snappy and nimble Neptunes tracks, which refreshingly don’t sound like the predictable Pharrell-and-Chad beats from years past." Andy Gill from The Independent also commented on the style of the album "There's also a significant sea-change in Shakira's sound, mostly courtesy of The Neptunes, which brings her more in line with the contemporary generic dancefloor electro employed by less distinctive pop divas." Johnny Dee from Virgin Media said "With 'She Wolf', Shakira has made one of the most ridiculously catchy and properly bonkers pop singles of the decade. Shakira’s talent is she turning these soap opera lyrics into excellent pop songs."
Chart performance 
"She Wolf" debuted at number fifteen on the Billboard 200 chart with sales of 89,000 units. According to Nielsen Soundscan, the album was Shakira's lowest charted album in about 10 years. After two weeks, the album sales total was 158,000 units. About the sales, a spokeswoman from Epic Records said, "After a four year hiatus, Shakira came back with a great album and we are very happy with its progress, this project was never about the first month for us". According to Nielsen Soundscan, "She Wolf" has sold 379,000 copies alone in the U.S. However, the album has been moderately successful worldwide, having been certified Gold in Russia, Ireland, Switzerland, Poland, France, Argentina, Greece, and Hungary, Platinum in Spain, the United Kingdom, and the Middle East, 2x Platinum in Colombia and Mexico, and 3x Platinum in Taiwan. Before the release of She Wolf in the U.S., the album sold more than 2 million copies worldwide and reached number one in 18 countries according to her label. The album debuted at number two at Billboard European Top 100 Albums. In February 2010, She Wolf was certified Platinum in the GCC by IFPI Middle East.
Shakira's official website announced that "the full album was due out in October 2009 from Epic" and it "features a predominantly English track list". The site also announced that a Spanish album would be released in 2010. Shakira premiered "She Wolf" on Z100 and KIIS-FM on July 13, 2009. Shakira stated in an interview that the album will have three Spanish songs. It was since revealed on her official website that the album would be released November 23 in the USA with exclusive bonus content that would not be available elsewhere. In Argentina and Colombia (and possibly other Spanish-speaking countries), Loba was re-released on March 22, 2010 with extra features like the Spanish version of the single "Gypsy" ("Gitana") and remixes.
- "Loba" was released as the lead single from the album on July 6 and "She Wolf" on July 13. Written by Shakira and John Hill, the song was well received by critics. The single reached the top-ten worldwide.
- "Did It Again" was released as the official second single internationally on October 16, 2009. It was released with a Spanish counterpart title "Lo Hecho Está Hecho" and has reached the top 40 in most countries including #17 in Ireland, #26 in Switzerland, #29 in the UK and #34 in Germany and Austria.
- "Give It Up to Me" was released as the second single from the album (third overall) in Canada and the US on November 10, 2009 and features rapper Lil Wayne. It was produced by in-demand hip-hop producer Timbaland and had originally been recorded for his album Shock Value II. It reached 29 and 31 in the US and Canada respectively. The song doesn't appear on any version released in Spanish speaking territories.
- "Gypsy" is the fourth and final single from the album, although it is the third single in each country, it is being serviced with Spanish version "Gitana" which is included on the latin American version of the album. "Gypsy" and "Gitana" were sent to radio stations around the world on February 22, 2010 and the song's video features tennis star Rafael Nadal.
