"Dare (La La La)" is a song recorded by Colombian singer-songwriter Shakira from her self-titled tenth studio album Shakira (2014). The song was first released to contemporary hit radio in Italy on 24 April 2014, as the third single from the album and was later released in a remix bundle in the United States via RCA Records. The song was co-written by Shakira, Jay Singh (J2), Dr. Luke, Mathieu Jomphe-Lepine, Max Martin, Cirkut, Raelene Arreguin and John J. Conte, Jr. while the production was handled by J2, Dr. Luke, Shakira, Cirkut and Billboard. The song is an uptempo, electro house song built over drums and chants.

A reworked version of the song entitled "La La La (Brazil 2014)" was released on 27 May as the second theme song for the 2014 World Cup. This was Shakira's second time singing a theme song for the FIFA World Cup (the first being in 2010); it should be noted that she also sang the 2006 World Cup theme song, Hip's Don't Lie/Bamboo (featuring Wyclef Jean) which was a remake of her worldwide hit Hips Don't Lie. The song included new lyrics and features Brazilian musician Carlinhos Brown. The version was praised by music critics and fared well commercially. An accompanying video was directed by Shakira's long time collaborator Jaume de Laiguana, the music video is influenced by Afro-Brazilian heritage and tribal imagery and features cameos from a variety of football players including Lionel Messi, Neymar, Cesc Fàbregas, Sergio Agüero, Radamel Falcao, James Rodríguez and Eric Abidal, Shakira's boyfriend Gerard Piqué and their son Milan.

Background[edit]

After the success of her ninth studio album, Sale el Sol, in 2010, Shakira revealed in November 2011, "I've begun to explore in the recording studio whenever I have time in Barcelona and here in Miami. I'm working with different producers and DJs, and I try to feed off from that and find new sources of inspiration and new musical motivation. I'm anxious to return to the studio. My body is asking for it."[2] In 2012, it was reported that Shakira was shooting the video for the tentative-first single "Truth or Dare" in Lisboa, Portugal.[3] However, due to Shakira's pregnancy, the song was not released. Later, in March 2014, Shakira explained to Billboard that, "It's been two-and-a-half years of making songs, trashing them, doing them again, doing eight versions of each song, having a baby, doing "The Voice," coming back to the studio, reconnecting with my songs."[4]

Release[edit]

After a 2012 leak of the filming of the first version of the video, speculation aroused that the song would be her comeback single. The song was finally premiered in March 2014, prior to the album release, in the Activia launch commercial for the "Dare to feel good" campaign,[5] directed by Jaume Delaiguana.

After release the first two singles from the album, "Can't Remember to Forget You"[6] and "Empire".[7] RCA chose "Dare (La La La)" as third single. The song was first released to contemporary hit radio in Italy on 28 March 2014.[8][9] Only on 12 May 2014 the song was officially released worldwide with extended play remixed by Chuckie and Chus & Ceballos.[10] On 20 May, the song was released in Germany as double single with the "La La La (Brazil 2014)" version.[11] The World Cup version was officially released on 27 May to impact radio stations, features Brazilian musician Carlinhos Brown.[10] In the United Kingdom the song was released on 28 May.[12]

About a year after its release, the original recordings of the song, in both English and Spanish, were leaked in HQ on SoundCloud, entitled "Truth or Dare" and "Adentro" respectively. The two versions are extended out to 4:43 (which was the original length when the song was announced) with an extended intro and outro. The two versions have Shakira's voice more pronounced during the "La la la" chorus and a slightly different instrumentation.

Composition[edit]

"Dare (La La La)" is an uptempo dance track that contains Brazilian beats and takes influence from electro house,[13] with a Spanish version of the song also recorded for the album.[14] The song is built over big drums, and chants.[15] The song was originally named "Truth Or Dare (On The Dancefloor)". The shooting of the music video was leaked in 2012 with half of the song being leaked in LQ. Since the leak fans took Twitter and Facebook making trending topics for Shakira to release the song. The singer announced the official tracklist of her 10th studio album Shakira in 2014 and the song was featured on the tracklist with a new title "Dare (La La La)" and a Spanish version titled "La La La". The song fully leaked one day before the European album release date.

In January 2014, FIFA and Sony Music announced that the official song for the tournament will be "We Are One (Ole Ola)" by Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leitte.[16] A customized version of the song "Dare (La La La)" by Shakira, who provided the official song of the 2010 tournament, will be used as a secondary theme song.[17] Shakira featured Brazilian musician Carlinhos Brown for a re-worked version of the song which is entitled "La La La (Brasil 2014)". The song is included on the Latin American, Spanish, and international[a] deluxe editions of the album and features new lyrics for the 2014 World Cup.[18]

The song was first released as a CD in Germany on 23 May 2014, shortly after the single was sent to Contemporary Hit Radio in Italy on 28 May 2014, the following day the single was released for digital download in the United Kingdom.[10][11][12] Upon release "La La La (Brazil) was met with positive reviews from music critics. Digitalspy praised the songs music video and production in particularly the songs "chants" and drums", the publication also placed the song at number six on their list of "8 World Cup Anthems of 2014".[15] The online publication Idoltor praised the song and its "catchy" composition.[19]

Gerard Piqué (left) and Neymar (right) were two of many footballers to appear in the Brazil 2014 version official video.

The music videos for "Dare (La La La)" and "La La La" (Spanish version) were premiered on 7 May 2014 via Shakira's VEVO channel on YouTube.[20][21] A portion of the recording of the chorus part video was leaked in mid-2012, proving the video was recorded before Shakira got pregnant, and a leak of nearly half the song followed. The videos were recorded in Lisbon, Portugal.

The original music video sees Shakira dancing "provocatively" whilst, wearing a black leather bra top and a black maxi skirt, the video continues with Shakira dancing up a multi coloured awl and on top of a building.[22] The video also features street parties and crowds, with carnival themes.[23] Online publication Idolator praised the video saying, the video is a "typical Shakira fashion" based around "an exotic location, bizarre dance moves and her now trademark stroll through a field," they further more praised the carnival scenes which "suits" the song.[23]

Shakira and Activia will also be donating funds to support the program.[26] On 30 May 2014, Spanish version of the video was premiered.[27]

The video is a "consciously surreal video" that takes influence from Afro-Brazilian heritage with tribal imagery, combining capoeira and footballer moves for an "artsy athletic displays". After the release of the video, it came to light that the video featured nearly shot-for-shot recreations of French artist WoodKid's video for his song "Iron". WoodKid denied having given permission to use these images in the video.[28]

The video includes footballers Lionel Messi, Neymar, Cesc Fàbregas, Sergio Agüero, Radamel Falcao, James Rodríguez and Éric Abidal.
