Shakira Sings for World Cup 2010
Shakira has a new song for the 2010 World Cup called “Waka Waka, (This is Africa)”, did you guys hear it? I like the video, it shows you clips of football games and Shakira of course appears in the clip doing an amazing dance with back up dancers wearing a hot outfit… I love her blonde locks!
Shakira also did a Spanish version of the song since she’s from Columbia. The Spanish version is called “Esto Es Africa.” Honestly I didn’t like the song much and critics even complained that it was “horrible”, Shakira features in this song an African band called Freshlyground and it is mixed with a Cameroonian song called “Zangalewa.”
Africans are actually angry that the official anthem of the World Cup is not sung by a South African artist. The organizers are getting many artists such as Black Eye’d Peas and Alicia keys to kick of the tournament concert but Africans want to see some local artists participate.
Back in 2006, Shakira also did a song for the World Cup and it was called “Bamboo,” do you remember it? Which one do you like better? I honestly prefer “Bamboo” it was really catchy and it was a hit single, people all over the world were singing it!
Shakira will perform the song before July 11 World Cup finale at the Soccer City Stadium.
