Welcome to WikiProject Shakira! This is a WikiProject dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of Colombian singer-songwriter Shakira, including her albums, songs, and all related topics. If you would like to help, please join the project, inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list below.

Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll (pronounced [ʃaˈkiɾa isaˈβel meβa'ɾak riˈpol]; born February 2, 1977), known professionally as Shakira (English: /ʃəˈkɪərə/, Spanish: [ʃaˈkiɾa]), is a Colombian singer-songwriter, dancer, record producer, choreographer, and model. Born and raised in Barranquilla, she began performing in school, demonstrating Latin, Arabic, and rock and roll influences and belly dancing abilities. Shakira released her first studio albums, Magia and Peligro, in the early 1990s, failing to attain commercial success; however, she rose to prominence in Latin America with her major-label debut, Pies Descalzos (1996), and her fourth album, Dónde Están los Ladrones? (1998).

Shakira entered the English-language market with her fifth album, Laundry Service (2001), which has sold over 13 million copies worldwide. Its lead single, "Whenever, Wherever", topped the singles charts of various countries across the globe. Her success was solidified with her sixth and seventh albums Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 and Oral Fixation, Vol. 2 (2005), the latter of which spawned the massive-hit, "Hips Don't Lie". Shakira's eighth studio effort She Wolf (2009) deviated from the Latin pop and pop rock musical styles that had dominated her previous work and instead explored genres like electropop and world. Although successful in numerous European and Latin American countries, it performed poorly in the United States. She returned to commercial prominence with the release of "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)", the official anthem of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, which became a worldwide hit and the biggest-selling World Cup song of all time. With over 500 million views, its music video is the sixth most-watched video on YouTube. Shakira's global success continued with the release of her ninth album Sale el Sol; it garnered critical acclaim and peaked atop multiple record charts. Since 2013, Shakira has served as a coach on the American version of The Voice, although she temporarily left the series during the fifth season.

Shakira has won many awards including five MTV Video Music Awards, two Grammy Awards, ten Latin Grammy Awards, seven Billboard Music Awards, twenty-eight Billboard Latin Music Awards, and has also been nominated for a Golden Globe. She has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and she is the highest-selling Colombian artist of all time, having sold over seventy million albums and fifty million singles. Her US album sales stand at 9.9 million. Outside of her work in the music industry, Shakira is also involved in philanthropic activities through charity work and benefit concerts, notably her Pies Descalzos Foundation, her performance at the "Clinton Global Initiative" created by former US President Bill Clinton, and her invitation to the Oval Office by US President Barack Obama in February 2010 to discuss early childhood development.
