Shakira is a multi-talented recording artist hailing from Barranquilla, Colombia. She is a singer, dancer, model, record producer, songwriter, choreographer and philanthropist. Her music career was launched in 1995 with her first studio album titled ‘Pies Descalzos’. Three years later she released her second Spanish album which went on to sell over 7 million copies around the world. After having much success in the Latin music industry, she released ‘Laundry Service’ in 2001 which contained a mix of English and Spanish songs. It sold over 15 million copies and spawned 2002’s best-selling single ‘Whenever, Wherever’. Other English hits from the album include ‘Underneath Your Clothes’ and ‘Objection (Tango)’. The multi award-winning artist has managed to remain incredibly humble through her success, and even does her bit of giving back to the less fortunate. Her ‘Pies Descalzos Foundation’ focuses on providing education and food to indigent children in Colombia. As busy as she keeps herself, Shakira also has her own fragrance line simply called ‘S’. She has three scents in this line: ‘S by Shakira’, ‘S by Shakira Eau Florale’ and ‘S by Shakira Aquamarine’. In 2012, she launched another successful scent titled ‘Elixir by Shakira’.
