Shakira Is Rabiosa!

Shakira, Shakira, Shakira! Oh how we adore thee. On her new single, “Rabiosa”, the third single off her latest album, "Sale El Sol" which means, 'The Sun Comes Out', in English, finds the latin icon using her trademaek metaphoric lyrics to express a rabid sound in both English and in Spanish.

We're not huge fans of Reggaeton, but thee accompanying horn sections make-up for the usually redundant sound beats. It's colorful conecept is surrounded by pole dancing, a bath-tub quickly turned into a ball pit, silly string and of course a leading man with killer blue-eyes.

In other words, this festivity is somewhere where we want to be. But in all truth, it's very similar to the kind of celebration we throw when we're amongst our dearest friends. It's all about spontaneous combustions and living in the moment as opposed to the tired planning and speculation other folks tend to do.

Indulge in all of Shakira's Rabiosa-ness below!
