On November 23rd, a new album from Latina sensation Shakira is going to be dropping in the U.S. In honor of this forthcoming addition to the discard bin, an additional single and video "Did It Again" has been released.Â (Check out the video here at YouTube, I'm not even going to bother trying to embed here on Gather.)
As if the first single and video for the title track of She Wolf weren't bad enough....
Seriously, iJustine's spoof video was better, and I don't even like iJustine.
"Did It Again" ups the weird factor by featuring bedroom gymnastics but not in a good way.Â I mean gymnastics.Â We're talking Kerrie Strug except not as good.
The non bedroom scenes - girls in white in a sauna!Â Very relevant.
I remember when I first heard Shakira and first saw her - I thought she was such a distinctive voice.Â She still is, but her new music sucks!
Oral Fixation was an okay CD.Â Fijacion Oral was really great to listen to, but this new CD shows all the signs of being a snoozefest.Â I blame it all on "Hips Don't Lie."Â A glimpse of a highly successful single (I think it was her highest charter or longest), and that was it.Â Then a song with Beyonce and now She Wolf.
Jessica Simpson could do as much (well, without the dancing), and that is not saying a lot.
Reminds me of a Maxim:Â What is popular is not always right, and what is right is not always popular.
