Shakira’s new “Perro Fiel” video alternates between playful and surreal. Director Jaume de Laiguana cuts between the Colombian singer dancing at a race track and shots of solemn musicians sawing away at women decorated like cellos.
“By 2030, 800 million – that’s half of the young people of the world – will drop out of school,” Shakira warns at Hamburg, Germany fest
On “Perro Fiel,” Shakira trades vocal hooks with guest singer Nicky Jam over a reggaeton drum groove laced with muted strings, whistles and EQ-shifting electronics. The track is Shakira’s third official single from her 11th studio album, El Dorado, following “Chantaje” and “Me Enamoré.”
The LP also features her hit collaboration with Carlos Vives, “La Bicicleta” (which won 2016 Latin Grammy Awards for Record of the Year and Song of the Year) and previously issued tracks “Deja Vu,” “Comme Moi” and “Nada.”
