Today Shakira premiered the Sophie Muller-directed video for “Give It Up To Me,” preceded by an interview with Carolina Bermudez of New York’s Z100 radio station.
The Timbaland-produced “Give It Up To Me” (ft. Lil Wayne, naturally) is the third single off the Colombian singer’s She Wolf album—will this one have any bite? Honestly, how many singles does this album need before release?
Believe it or not, the video marks the first time Shakira’s used backup dancers. “For the first time in my life, I’m stepping,” the singer told Bermudez. “I didn’t know what it was like to be on stage with backup dancers. You feel contained, you know?” Hey now, no fighting.
