Shakira Releases the Official English & Spanish Music Videos for “Dare (La La La)”

Shakira’s hips don’t lie, nor do they take a break, in her latest music video…

The 37-year-old Colombian singer and The Voice coach has released the official clip for her latest single “Dare (La La La),” which finds Shakira playing “truth or dare on the dancefloor.”


Shakira really does look like she’s having a blast in the new video, which was directed by Rihanna’s frequent collaborator Anthony Mandler and shot in outdoor locations in Lisbon.

Dressed in a haute black dress with a bondage-inspired top and flowing skirt, Shakira proves she’s got the moves like Jagger.

The video premiered Tuesday in both English and Spanish versions on Vevo.

Close to end of the 3-minute video, Shakira lets loose with a crowd dressed in Carnaval costumes.

The easy breezy EDM track with a no brainer chorus – the third single from her self-titled album – is destined to make a splash during the long, hot summer.

Another version of “Dare (La La La)” is slated for the upcoming 2014 World Cup. “La La La (Brasil 2014)” will be included on the official FIFA World Cup album “One Love, One Rhythm” due May 12, competing against Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez’s “We Are One(Ole, Ola)” and other anthems for the title of this year’s biggest global anthem.

Shakira Lands Atop Billboard’s Social Media Chart

Shakira is No. 1 with a bullet on the social media charts…

The 36-year-old Colombian superstar singer and returning The Voice coach has reached No. 1 on Billboard‘s Social 50 chart.


Shakira jumped 5-1 to take the pole position. It’s her first time at No. 1 since Feb. 9, 2013, and only her second week atop the chart.

Shakira surged to the top of the heap after sharing another photo of her baby on January 25. That image garnered an astounding 2.1 million post-likes.

In addition, the “Loca” singer released the Spanish version of her new single with Rihanna, “Nunca Me Acuerdo de Olvidarte,” to VEVO on January 22.

The “Nunca” audio post on VEVO has received more than 1 million views, and a successful promotional post on Facebook led to a 250% spike in weekly fan acquisition on the platform.

But Shakira isn’t the only Hispanic artist to make the Top 10…

Pitbull, who earned extensive press this week when it was announced that his track “We Are One (Ole Ola)” was selected as the official song for the upcoming FIFA World Cup, comes in at No. 5.

The track, which hasn’t been released, features Jennifer Lopez and Brazilian singer Claudie Leitte.

Pitbull’s boost in the Social 50 rankings is also complemented by Austin Mahone (47-40), who released his new single “MMM Yeah,” which features the 33-year-old Cuban American rap superstar. Overall, Pitbull ascends with a 132% increase in mentions on Twitter, a 7% rise in Facebook conversation, which leads to 928,000 new fans added overall (up 28% from the previous frame).

The Social 50 ranks the most popular artists on YouTube, VEVO, Facebook, Twitter, SoundCloud, Wikipedia, Myspace and Instagram. The chart’s methodology blends weekly additions of friends/fans/followers along with artist page views, song plays and reactions as measured by music analytics company Next Big Sound.
