  1. Shakira

    Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, known as Shakira, is a Colombian singer-songwriter, dancer, record producer, choreographer, and model. Born and raised in Barranquilla, she began performing in school, demonstrating Latin, Arabic, and rock and roll influences and belly dancing abilities. Shakira released her first studio albums Magia and Peligro in the early 1990s, failing to attain commercial success. However, she rose to prominence in Latin America with her major-label debut Pies Descalzos and her fourth album Dónde Están los Ladrones?. Shakira entered the English-language market with her fifth album Laundry Service, which has sold over 20 million copies worldwide. Its lead single "Whenever, Wherever" became the best-selling single of 2002. Her success was solidified with her sixth and seventh albums Fijación Oral, Vol. 1 and Oral Fixation, Vol. 2, the latter of which spawned the best-selling song of the 21st century, "Hips Don't Lie". Shakira's eighth and ninth albums She Wolf and Sale el Sol received critical praise, but suffered from limited promotion due to her strained relationship with label Epic Records. Her official song for the 2010 FIFA World Cup "Waka Waka" became the biggest-selling World Cup song of all time. With over 500 million views, its music video seventh most-watched video on YouTube. Since 2013, Shakira has served as a coach on the American version of The Voice, although she temporarily left the series during the fifth season.
