Top Ten Most Iconic English Shakira Songs

It's abundantly clear that I've found a niche to stick with. This time around it's Shakira.
1. If it's in English, go ahead and add it.
2. Translated songs are acceptable.
3. If a song features more than one language, use your best judgement.
4. If an English version includes a different guest than a Spanish version, please specify.

The Top Ten

1 Hips Don't Lie Hips Don't Lie

One of the 2000's best-selling singles, you pretty much knew this would be it right. Shout out to Wyclef Jean for reworking one of his songs for Shaki. - theOpinionatedOne

2 Whenever, Wherever Whenever, Wherever

Her first English language song and wouldn't you know it, it became a smash hit worldwide. Shout out to Gloria Estefan for helping Shakira write songs in English. - theOpinionatedOne

3 She Wolf She Wolf

Rock star turned disco diva. One of my favorite songs to dance to. Super clever lyrics too! - theOpinionatedOne

4 Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)

The 2010 World Cup theme and one of the most viewed YouTube videos ever. - theOpinionatedOne

5 Underneath Your Clothes Underneath Your Clothes

One of my favorite songs by Shakira. Ballads and slower songs really suit her voice nicely. - theOpinionatedOne

6 Loca Loca

She took the dance music sound of her previous album and spiced it up with a bit of merengue. - theOpinionatedOne

7 Objection (Tango) Objection (Tango)

I love when she incorporates elements of new wave into her music. And the lyrics are cool as a coconut bra. - theOpinionatedOne

8 Can't Remember to Forget You Can't Remember to Forget You

The choice to work with Rihanna on this reggae influenced rock song was a great way to make it a bigger hit. - theOpinionatedOne

9 Illegal Illegal

This is probably one of her most emotional songs ever and her singing is sublime. And of course with Santana on guitar you know it's sexy as hell. - theOpinionatedOne

10 Give It Up to Me Give It Up to Me

I needed a tenth and couldn't decide so I played eenie meenie miney mo. - theOpinionatedOne

The Contenders

Amazing! Both versions of this song sounds great!

12 How Do You Do How Do You Do

Beautiful song with a lot of meaning.

Grandiose, epic song exploring rock roots and at the same time, showcasing the amazing vocal range that Shakira has!
