Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll was born in Barranquilla, Columbia, on February 2, 1977. As a child, she was surrounded by both Columbian and Lebanese music and dance, and today incorporates themes and styles from both into her music and stage performances. After performing in Bogatá for Sony Columbia executives in 1990, she was signed to the label. However, her first two albums, 1991's Magia and 1993's Peligro, failed to sell well. After spending two years away from the recording studio, Shakira came back determined to make her own way to commercial success. She took a greater hand in the production of her next album, Pies Descalzos. The greater involvement paid off; the album became her breakthrough and spun off six hit singles, including "Estoy Aqui" and "¿Dónde Estás Corazón?" Since release, the album has sold over 4 million copies.
Shakira's next albums were even more successful than Pies Descalzos. 1998's ¿Dónde Están los Ladrones? was another hit in Latin American countries. Three of the songs, "Tú," "Ciega, Sordomuda," and "No Creo" became hits not only in her home country, but also in the United States. "Ojos Así" was the album's best received song, with its blend of Latin rock and Arabic influences. Following the album's release, Shakira began to focus on the English market. 2001's Laundry Service was her first work to break the top 10 barrier on the Billboard 200, landing at #3. It is her best selling album to date, and spawned two more hit singles, "Whenever, Wherever" and "Underneath Your Clothes."
Even with her newfound popularity in North America, Shakira continued to create work in Latin America. To that end, she wrote a pair of albums that were released in 2005. Fijación Oral Vol. 1 was written in Spanish, while Oral Fixation Vol. 2 was written in English and featured collaborations with Carlos Santana and Wyclef Jean. The two parts had one #1 single a piece: "La Tortua" in the case of the first and "Hips Don't Lie" for the second. Shakira's latest album was 2009's She Wolf, which featured Lil Wayne on the single "Give It Up To Me."
