Combining songs in English and Spanish throughout the performance, Shakira continued with the English version of I announce you, I warn you (Objection (tango), which belongs to your disk Laundry service (2001). It is the first song that the singer wrote in English. At the time when Shakira triumphed with this song, Emilio Estefan was leading his career. It was Emilio, along with Gloria Estefan, who convinced the singer that she needed to take the step of writing songs in English because her success could be global. They weren’t wrong.
Next, it was the turn of Whenever, Wherever, (2001), unot one of the most important songs of his career and with which he put the Spanish public in the pocket at the beginning of the 2000s. By the time he arrived right after hips don’t lie, Newark’s Prudential Center was already fully delivered up and dancing. “In Barranquilla she dances like this,” the singer shouted, to make her Latin roots clear to the American public. Among the attendees, her two sons Sasha and Milan Piqué enjoyed the performance of her mother, from whom they did not leave each other all night. They also posed with her on the red carpet and with the awards.
How could it be otherwise, he closed the show with BZRP Music Sessions #53, a song with which he ended up jumping to the public. A perfect closing for a performance of 10 minutes and 53 seconds of pure enjoyment and enjoyment. Also a good reminder that Shakira’s career is long, diverse and multicultural. She has earned her name as one of the most important Latin pop divas in history.
