Shakira isn’t the first name that comes to mind when you think of country music (or even the 101st) but she dabbles in the genre — very successfully — on her new self-titled LP. Take “Medicine”, her winning duet with fellow The Voice coach Blake Shelton, which she performed live for the first time at last night’s (April 6) Academy of Country Music Awards.
The Colombian goddess looked ravishing (if slightly out of place) in her thigh-high leather boots and sexy red dress, while Blake kept in classic in a suit (no jacket). Their voices blended well together and the song is an extremely endearing shot of country-pop, which could explain why “Medicine” is now hovering just outside the iTunes top 1o. Oh and Shakira’s head-banging at the end is kind of everything. Watch up top.
