Shakira and Dizzee's most excellent duet

After writing about Mark Ronson's lightness-of-touch yesterday, it's interesting to hear a new track from Shakira that displays the same traits. Her She-Wolf album, which is barely 12 months old, was a classic example of an artist trying so hard to be cutting edge and relevant that their music became stilted and wooden.

Things got back on track with her World Cup anthem Waka Waka and this new record, Loca, is in a similar vein. Coconuts have been shaken, tequila bottles have been drained, and the gras is most definitely mardi.

Best bit, though, is Dizzee Rascal blurting "that girl is a nutter".

He calls 'em like he sees 'em.

The song is from Shakira's hot-off-the-presses new album, Sale El Sol (Sunrise). The Colombian popstrel unveiled the artwork on Twitter last night...

Let's hope the rest of the album lives up to the promise of the single.
