Empire | Shakira


★★★★☆

Just on the heels of "Can't Remember to Forget You," Shakira has decided to up the ante for the quality of her upcoming album release, Shakira.

The song opens on a quiet note, as Shakira uses a slight accent, which already adds to her unique tone. The song quickly climaxes as Shakira screams "And the stars make love to the universe / And you touch me / And I'm like, and I'm like, and I'm like / Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh." 

"Empire" takes a rock direction more so than a pop sound, actually, and that isn't exactly a bad thing. The experimentation on this album is going to be big; the changes between "Can't Remember To Forget You" and "Empire" already foreshadow that fact. Now it's time to wait until the album drops.

Shakira is due out on March 25 and will contain "Can't Remember To Forget You," "Empire," and ten other tracks. The deluxe edition will contain three extra tracks.
