Iggy Azalea sheds some light on her upcoming collaboration with Britney Spears. Learn more.

Shakira certainly doesn’t waste time between albums! Spanish newspaper El Mundo reports that the Columbian superstar has almost finished her 11th LP, which is said to be a multi-lingual affair featuring Mexican rock band Maná and Spanish singer/heartthrob Alejandro Sanz. The article also claims that the “Can’t Remember To Forget You” hitmaker spent some time in the studio with Iggy Azalea, who is sweetly described as “the latest sensation on American radio stations.”

It sounds like an unlikely combination but Shakira has a habit of making the quirkiest collaborations work. (Listen to the Dizzee Rascal-assisted “Loca,” for just one example). If the track makes the album (due in Spring), it will be another big coup for Iggy. The Australian femcee has already announced her feature on Britney Spearscomeback single and there are persistent rumors of an appearance on Selena Gomez‘s Interscope debut.
