Shakira biography

The singer Shakira was born on 02.02.1977 in Barranquilla (Colombia) under the real name Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll.

Shakira released her first album "Magia" at the age of 14. The first as well as the second album "Peligro" were unsuccessful and so went back to her school commitments.

In 1995 Shakira returned to the music business. In the Spanish-speaking market, she was able to post her first successes. The international success came with the change to the English language and the accompanying album "Laundry Service". In the course of her career, she has already won several Grammys.

Shakira's international breakthrough came with Laundry Service in 2002. The album made it to the top of the respective charts in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Mexico and Great Britain. In the United States, it was at least enough for third place.

In mid-September 2009 the first single from the new album "She Wolf" was released under the same title. Shakira made the direct jump to position two in the German single charts.

In 2010 Shakira and the South African band Freshlyground presented the official song for the 2010 World Cup. The song was named "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)" and accompanied fans around the world during the World Cup. In 2014 the album "Shakira" was released.
