In a new video for her single “Give It Up to Me,” Latin songstress Shakira trades her signature hip-shaking for a hip-hop vibe. Applying Jamaican dancehall footwork, traditional Thai dancing and a technique called “stepping,” which mixes the footsteps and handclaps of African American fraternity and sorority culture, the “She Wolf” singer turns up the heat again.
She’s even called on hip-hop honcho Timbaland to produce the song and rapper Lil Wayne to make a guest appearance.
Check out Shakria’s Facebook page on Monday (3 p.m. EST) to see the full video for “Give It Up to Me” from her upcoming album She Wolf, out Nov. 23. – Jessica Herndon
