New Music: Shakira f/ Dizzee Rascal – ‘Loca’

Sale El Sol

September just got a lil’ bit crazy. Shakira, who’s following up her 2009 English album She Wolf with the bilingual Sale El Sol, has simultaneously released English and Spanish versions of the effort’s first single “Loca,” with U.K. grime rapper Dizzee Rascal spitting alongside the international superstar on the song’s English edition.

The horn-soaked track, a remake of El Cata’s merengue hit “Loca Con Su Tiguere,” is a spicy Latin-influenced confection, with Shakira seductively singing, “I’m crazy but you like it!” on the chorus.

The song’s debut coincides with the release of her album cover, which shows the Latina hottie laying in the sand with clumps of Silly Bandz on her wrists. “Just finished the new album cover. What do you think? Recién terminada la portada del álbum, ¿les gusta?” she wrote on her Facebook page.

The album, which collaborator Rico Love revealed as having a more “pop, edgy” sound than its predecessor, also features production from Jim Jonsin, who previously spoke to about her work ethic. “She’s a boss. She definitely knows what she wants and she’s not gonna settle for anything less. She’s a strong-willed woman,” he stated.

Sale El Sol is due in stores October 19.
