Loca, loca, loca!

Mi chica bonita Shakira is back…ah, I love her.

Filmed in Barcelona, Spain in August 2010, “Loca” is directed by Jaume de Laiguan, who has collaborated with Shakira on projects in the past.

Released Wednesday, September 29, 2010 it’s this whirlwind of golden, Latina goodness of a crazy day out.

A little known fact, however, is that “Loca” is Shakira’s interpretation of El Cata’s “Loca Con Su Tiguere.”

Shakira took the original song, altering the melodies, thus giving the track a different beat with new lyrics.

It is considered to be heavily influenced by contemporary merengue music.
