Shakira’s latest video for ‘Give It Up To Me’ feat. Lil
Wayne; Official CD release parties for the Latin LGBT
community coming up!
Epic Records’ recording artist and international superstar, Shakira, has released her second single, produced by Timbaland and accompanying music video, “Give It Up To Me” featuring Lil Wayne, off her highly anticipated album, SHE WOLF in stores November 23rd. The “Give It Up To Me” music video is a dance showcase which stays true to Shakira’s culturally diverse routines and her unmatched ability to interpret them to her own signature style.
Known for constantly reinventing the art of dance in her videos, Shakira combines techniques from across the globe in “Give It Up To Me”. Shakira infused Jamaican dancehall with the complex art of “stepping,” which is deeply rooted in the African American culture of fraternities and sororities. Stepping is a percussive dance which uses footsteps, hand and body clapping to a beat in military precise formations which only Shakira could translate to the hard-hitting, energetic dance beats of “Give It Up To Me”. For an added twist, she learned an intricate, traditional Thai dance sequence for the video. Shakira fused the three styles, creating a cohesive and dynamic routine.
