Magia (Shakira album)[edit]

(more info)

This peer review discussion has been closed.
We need a GA about one of Shakira's early promotional albums, and I would like this one to reach that status. Feel free to make suggestions of improvement for the article to be good, and what more info I could use as well. Make sure you provide a reliable source of where you found that info from.

Since this album is not very well-known , you'll might have to turn to sources especially those printed around the time of Shakira's early fame on Google Books. One article from a Colombian article talks about her being a winner of the Chilean Vina del Mar. Also found a Billboard article makes a mention about it too. Other than that, the lead needs to be expanded, the singles need references to indicate they were released as singles. Put Spanish in the language parameter on the album infobox as well. Since it's her first album, the background should expand on her musical beginnings. Other than that, I can't imagine there's much for article to expand since it received very little attention. It probably won't take much to achieve GA in this case. Erick (talk) 03:31, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

I've done a bit expanding to the lead, and the only single I could find was for the song "Magia". Did some of the other stuff you said too, now I'll be looking for what background info to put. Thanks for the suggestions! EditorEat ma talk page up, scotty! 14:41, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

Any suggestions for this to become a FA? Thanks. EditorEat ma talk page up, scotty! 21:27, 10 August 2013 (UTC)

Hmm. Well that might be difficult. You're probably going to put on a reception section which may be hard to find. BTW, the Billboard should use Template:cite journal. Erick (talk) 04:22, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
Had a hard time finding any reception sources. Did use cite journal template for Billboard source. Seems a lot of members of the Wikiproject Shakira aren't willing to improve and expand articles about Shakira's first two albums, and I seem the only one to want to.

I'd love to help but I'm very busy with trying to make She Wolf a good topic. Also, I didn't think much about Magia and Peligro because.... well are they really important? Shakira herself doesn't seem to care much about them. But I'd like to commend you for taking the initiative to improve Magia. Good luck!

P.s- Have you thought what to do about the album's commercial performance? --WonderBoy1998 (talk) 14:29, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

  • What do you mean? EditorEat ma talk page up, scotty! 14:49, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
I mean do you have any sources or information concerning the chart performance of the album? --WonderBoy1998 (talk) 15:44, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
No. I couldn't find any charts, as the album only sold 1,200 copies. EditorEat ma talk page up, scotty! 16:59, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
And unfortunately, there aren't really any Latin American countries with album charts. Only Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico has them. :( Erick (talk) 20:51, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
