Shakira's next album is going to be off the hook! The Hips Don't Lie singer has recorded with Pharrell Williams and Wycleff Jean for her album due out later this year. A duet with Calle 13 will also be included and sources say that a track with Khaled may be in the works. This will be the first album since 2005's Oral Fixation set, and it's about time!
Shakira will also be among the performers this Sunday at We Are One: The Obama Inaugural Celebration At The Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. Presented by HBO on January 18th from 7-9PM EST, this event is free and open to the public.
Other performers include Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, Bono, Garth Brooks, Sheryl Crow, Herbie Hancock, John Legend, Usher, Bruce Springsteen, James Taylor, will.i.am, Stevie Wonder, and John Mellancamp. Looks like 2009 is starting out just wonderful for Shakira!
