Shakira Rocks Out On “Empire”: Listen To Her Kooky New Single

949c1a0a11f478ea11693a0cae6ecfad Shakira Rocks Out On “Empire”: Listen To Her Kooky New Single

It’s been a busy day for Shakira. The 37-year-old stunner unveiled the tracklist for her self-titled LP this morning (February 24) and announced “Empire” as the follow-up to Rihanna duet “Can’t Remember To Forget You”. This afternoon, she kept the momentum going by unexpectedly premiering the new track on VEVO.

Describing the kooky rock song as surprising would be an understatement. Colombia’s finest export has dabbled in guitar-pop over the years but “Empire” is her rowdiest rock adventure by far. It begins in acoustic mode with a sparse intro before Shakira unleashes her inner head-banger and howls her way through the chorus. I needed a couple of listens to fully process the new direction but I love how she keeps us guessing and I’m even more excited for her new album now. Listen after the jump.

Is this a good sound for Shakira? Have your say in the comments below.
