Shakira reveals second single

Along with this week’s unveiling of her new album’s cover art, Shakira’s representatives confirmed that the second single from the album She Wolf will be the song Why Wait.

The song (Spanish title: Años Luz) was produced by Pharrell Williams and mixes his usual catchy pop aesthetic with an irresistible combination of Middle Eastern sounds, perhaps in tribute to Shakira’s part-Lebanese heritage.

Casting for the video clip is currently underway and shooting will begin in a few weeks.

Whether Shakira will continue to cause controversy with this clip and her exploration of sensuality as seen in the video for She Wolf remains to be seen, says music website Ritmos Latinos.
