Released in May of this year, El Dorado hit number one on the US Top Latin Albums and number 15 on the Billboard 200 chart. “Chantaje” was the album’s first hit single and made number one on Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart for eleven non-consecutive weeks. El Dorado has also been certified platinum 16 times by the Recording Industry Association of America. Hit singles include “La Bicicleta” featuring Carlos Vives, “Chantaje” featuring Maluma, “Me Enamoré,” and “Déjà vu.”
Shakira rose to fame after the release of her 1996 album, Pies Descalzos, winning over fans with her complex melisma, stylized vibrato, and rhythmic belly dancing. Pies Descalzos debuted at number one in eight different countries, landing her first world tour.
Laundry Service, Dónde Están los Ladrones?, Oral Fixation, (volumes one and two) She Wolf, and other notable albums have since followed in its footsteps, producing hit singles including “Tú,” “Wherever, Whenever,” and “La Tortura.” Shakira remains the highest-selling Colombian artist of all time, having sold between 50-and-60 million records.
