Shakira (Colombian musician) Wiki, Bio, Family, Boyfriend, Husband, Height, Weight, Age & More

Shakira, who was born on February 2, 1977, in Barranquilla, Colombia, has earned fame as a distinguished Colombian musician, recognized for her impact in both Spanish and English music industries. By the early 2000s, she emerged as a leading figure among Latin American artists.

Having a Lebanese father and a Colombian mother, Shakira took up belly dancing from an early age. By the time she was 10, she had started writing songs and participating in talent shows. In 1990, thanks to a local theatre producer, she auditioned for a Sony Corp. executive, which led to her signing a record deal. Her first albums, “Magia” (1991) and “Peligro” (1993), saw moderate success. Following a short period acting in the Latin soap opera “El oasis,” Shakira made a strong return to music with “Pies descalzos” (1995), which included hit songs like “Estoy aquí,” “Pienso en ti,” and “Un poco de amor.”

Her 1998 album “¿Dónde están los ladrones?” was marked by unforgettable singles and brought her Latin Grammy Awards for the best female pop vocal performance (“Ojos así”) and best rock vocal performance (“Octavo día”). Shakira then set her sights on the American market, achieving success with “MTV Unplugged” (2000), which won a Grammy Award for best Latin pop album. In 2001, she ventured into the English-speaking market with “Laundry Service,” her first English-language album. Despite some criticism of her English lyrics, “Laundry Service” was a commercial hit, selling over 13 million copies worldwide.
