Ahhhoooooooooo! Yes indeed! It took me a while to embrace it, but I’ve finally come around to loving “She Wolf”. Shacky returns with an electro/disco cut that has a howltastic chorus, a contender for lyric of the year (”...I’m starting to feel just a little abused like a coffee machine in an office…”) and a gagtastic video to make sense of it all.
The woman manages to squeeze a “ruby” cave, a gold cage, a jazz slut unitard, a fly pair of pumps, a Pamela Anderson wig, kooky dance steps, an actual wolf and the “Smooth Criminal” lean into a four minute 80s video masterpiece. And what about that choreogrpahy? Only Shakira could get away with that sh*t—- and it totally works for her. Poor Ciara had to work twice as hard in her recent “Love Sex Magic” video and still only managed a third of the hotness that Shakira makes seem effortless in this clip. Plus, I can’t remember the last time I had to reach for my dictionary cuz of something I heard in a pop song (“lycanthropy”, look it up.)
With “She Wolf” now making a run for my fave video of the year, it’ll be interesting to see what the rest of ‘Kira’s project will sound like. Also, a good friend of mine highly recommends that you check out the “Making Of” special that MTV did on this clip to really appreciate her vision. GaGa, Boncee, what y’all got? Grade: A+
