Review Summary: Blue Balls: The Album

Shakira doesn't get enough love on the Sput so I'm here to share some thoughts on why this album is worth your time if you want a pop album that will make you want to dance. This is Shakira's newest album for now. El Dorado is the eleventh studio album by Shakira the mega diva sensation from Colombia. She is well known for her hips which do not tell lies and her philanthropic efforts for the underprivileged of international communities. Her songs have have features from the Latin music world as well as US hip hop and R&B stars. That said, she is mainly known for her pop music which is always well received by her adoring fans.

Shakira doesn't get enough credit for all the work she puts into her albums. She is the producer and primary songwriter for most everything she records. This album is not any different. The main change seen from her previous album, Shakira. to El Dorado is the movement towards Reggaeton sounds. These tracks have more bass and an increasingly hip hop feel comparatively. If you are a fan of Shakira, whether for her music or for how attractive she is, or both, El Dorado offers something special just for you. If you need a quick trailer for the album, feel free to get on youtube and look up "Chantaje," which translates to blackmail, from this album. "Chantaje" features the popular Latin music star Maluma. This song may be different from the pop that you are used to, but don't be hesitant to allow Shakira to work her magic on your senses.

The song "Coconut Tree" lends to previous work from Shakira, offering a sweet message of living together in a dream with the one you love. This track could easily have been a standout song on Sale el Sol and rank pretty high in the Oral Fixation volumes. "Me Enamoré" starts out the album and sets the tone with massive amounts of sex appeal. The Spanish album title and song titles also hint that this is one of her albums that leans heavily into her roots. Shakira has a way with lyrics, even when you don't understand the meaning of them all, and melodies, which are universal. She has a keen instinct for getting you moving and making you feel comfortable in your own skin. She also knows how to appeal sexually to the listener and this is where the synopsis comes from. You may enjoy the energy jolt of the singles if that's your approach to listening. There should be a disclaimer for male full album listeners that she intends to give you blue balls. Don't be a goddam prude for Jesus Christ's sake listen to Shakira sometime.

even her fans cant seem to agree on what her best albums are. hard to rec a full album for that reason, but her youtube vids with billions of views might be the best place to start if you are new to her art. there are some great docs out there as well.
