Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, known globally as Shakira, is a Colombian singer who has been captivating audiences since her teenage years. Although her initial attempts at breaking into the music scene with her first two albums were less than successful, her 1995 album “Pies Descalzos” marked her as a force to be reckoned with in the Latin music world. Her subsequent releases have not only cemented her reputation in the Spanish-speaking world but have also made her a global phenomenon.

Her transition into the English-speaking market with the 2001 album “Laundry Service” was a game-changer, with the single “Whenever, Wherever” catapulting her into global stardom.
