Shakira's new single, tentatively titled "Truth or Dare", will be the lead single from her forthcoming English album coming this year, with the official single being released in early August, (a couple of weeks from now), if it's not leaked earlier.
The song has been heard on LQ this days as Shakira has been filming the official music video for "Truth or Dare" at Lisbon, Portugal, using Parque Eduardo VI as one of the locations for the video.
Here are some of the videos left from where we can hear previews of the song at LQ, as the other ones have been quickly taken down by copyright.
What we know from the new single:
PREVIEW: September 11
RELEASE: September 17
She'll do two versions of the song, even though it's for her English album, she'll make, as usual, a Spanish version of the song as well.
Video sets include a labyrinth, Shakira dressed as a Gypsy, and a choreography set as a flash mob, in the streets of the Pavilhao de Portugal.
It sounds more electro, not dubstep at all and as for the latin, it depends on the perspective.
It starts with "La la la la la", then the structure goes: Verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, chorus.
The ending of the dance break goes "Dance floor dance floor dance dance d-d-d-d--d-d-d-d-a-a-a-a-a-ncefloor" *stops* "LA LA LA LA LA LA".
Reportedely really catchy, and one of Shakira's strongest songs in years, in her ambition to conquer the US Market, produced by RedOne, Afrojack and Sidney Samson.

I had hoped that Christina was in a better place now than the last time I saw her, when she showed up uninvited at one of my parties and displayed questionable behavior. It is sad yet predictable that she would use my name at this time to reinvent past incidents for her promotional gain. It is in my heart to forgive and I will keep her in my prayers
I am literally stuffing my mouth with tomatoes right now (I think they come from Columbia) to get me in the mood for SHAKIRA SLAYTIME!
JESSIE J. NO-ONE ELSE
I just don't get why people want to make sense of the world. At the end of the day, we are all living on some random rock in the middle of a big black darkness which we know nothing about. It is pretty much a lost cause. Don't agonise over it...just enjoy life!
i cant wait for this song i need need this in july not august..
