Shakira, the Colombian singer-songwriter with a strong rockabilly sound who became well-known for her soaring pop songs and tearjerking ballads
didn't actually work with any other well-known musicians throughout the first ten years of her career.
She didn't make a splash with her celebrity collaborations until 2005, when she released Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 and Oral Fixation, Vol. 2,
with the Alejandro Sanz-assisted "La Tortura" and Wyclef Jean's "Hips Don't Lie."
The only other musicians she included on those two albums were Carlos Santana and Gustavo Cerati.
Since then, Shakira has become more receptive to working with others,
collaborating with a select group of artists such as Maluma, Prince Royce, Maná, and the Black Eyed Peas on tracks that are also more musically adventurous, embracing urban-leaning sounds and including
Her most recent song, "Monotona," which she collaborated on with Ozuna, embodies Shakira in all her dramatic poetic glory
Shak doesn't hold back when singing about sadness and the loss of what looked to be a great romance while being driven by a bachata beat.
