At this point she's doing a visual album, lol.

Why you complaining sis? That would happen in my wildest dreams, I'd love a video for Coconut Tree  :l-o-v-e:

I've checked out Paula Arenas and hearing some of her songs, Nada in particular, makes me realize how sad songs bring out the best in an artist. Shakira is too happy now to make those, and it's a pity. I mean your life doesn't have to be in ruins to make a sad song, geez.

It doesn't have to be overly sad or cheerful.

For example none of her previous albums are sad or depressing. They just have variety of themes and moods.

After SES they veer more to the corny side.

Of course its a rumour, not any official information.
But lets see if it will happen (in vase they filmed a music video for Nada, instead of tour visuals).

I just don't get it sis


Why is she holding back?


Is it fear to be rejected? Or fear to flop?

Is she trying to save money? By being the only producer in her albums?

I'd say investigate new sounds, create new formulas, get better songwriters ( more original) yet people who understand the industry and are able to make hits!


John Hill is one in a million why bother sticking to his formulas?

Luis Fer is awesome but most of the time he nails it in Spanish songs

The guy who produced Shakira ( and co wrote Broken Record) is a nobody who used to arrange music for the Voice

Ugh the voice was the worst decision. If she had kept the EDM album and released it in 2012 she might have had more success. Who cared about an adult contemporary album by a damn mainstream popstar? self Titled was her Joanne, tbh.
Then we had the uneventful lead single and the lack of chemistry between her and Rihanna which didnt do anything.
She needs to work with people who know the sound of today, producers that are capable of creating fresh music. Ballads and forced duets won't do the trick.

Perro Fiel is a miss because of the lack of chemistry too, this is a running theme with her collaborations.

This.
This is a major problem. She is a bit of an anti social. Always has been though.

Apart from her boyfriends or parents/kids/brother she seems to not give two fucks about people, or wanting to socialise with them.

Xilena Aycardi, her Colombian "bestie" who joined her around the world during the TSCO tour didn't even mention her when she got asked in an interview for bravissimo ( a Colombian talk show) to name her best friends, and it seemed like the anchors were aiming to hear her say Shak.

Cuz even her friendship with Kathy Kopp seems forced as hell. ( let's not forget that this one is a bit of a weirdo, orthodox catholic, big supporter of an "only man-woman" idea of family)

She had no chemistry with Maluma ( at least on those recordings (pre-success) sessions)

No chemistry whatsoever with Carlos Vives, and I'm sure he didn't just "forget about mentioning her"

No chemistry with Rene from Calle 13 ( but he's an idiot anyway)

No chemistry with Rihanna

No chemistry with Beyoncé

No chemistry with Black M

No chemistry with Prince Roy

No chemistry with Adam Levine
Etc etc

She's had had a bit of chemistry with:

- Wyclef

- Blake Shelton

- The Magic! dudes

And Gustavo Cerati

And lots of chemistry with:

Alejandro Sanz, but then again he probably penetrated her. I mean why not.

The worst collab of all is CRTFY. The whole thing is obnoxious and you can tell they recorded their parts separately without even meeting in person. Rihanna is tucked on in there as an afterthought or something.

 

Lol i don't forget that intimate video of her and Alejandro in the dual disk of FO. Sis had a great time that night.

I think she is just not into it anymore. Doesnt need to prove
Herself anymore, has other priorities, and she said so herself. From SES all kind of went downhill. And that reflects in her music/music videos.
