Hot off the heels of her Latin pop hit “Chantaje” featuring fellow Colombian sensation Maluma, Shakira has released the next single to tease her upcoming 11th studio album, “Me Enamoré,” just in time for Spring Break. The poppy bop has reggaeton undertones similar to “Chantaje,” but is more breezy and tropical. For sure, it sounds tailor-made to be the next summer anthem, at least for the Latin pop market. It’s pre-Semana Santa (Spring Break) release is perfect timing.

If she’s wise, she’ll offer a Spanglish version for the mainstream American market. The chorus, where she sings, “Me gusta esa barbita” and “Nos enamoramos/Un mojito, dos mojitos” are catchy and perfect for los Gringos that so desperately want to pretend to be cultured by eating burritos, drinking mojitos and wearing a sombrero on Cinco de Mayo. She’s already released a colorful lyric video to accompany the song, but for sure a sexy, dance-filled video is on the way as we speak. If it’s anywhere near as good as “Chantaje,” Shakira can expect yet another video with over a billion views VEVO, a la “Chantaje.” Be ready for Shaki to slay us this summer, and go loca, loca, loca for her all over again.
