Shakira Scores With “Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)” Video

The last time Shakira featured a sports star in one of her music videos, we were treated to shirtless tennis star Rafael Nadal drenched in sweat in “Gypsy”. For the video for her World Cup song, “Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)”, the singer rounded up dozens of hot soccer players for you to drool over. Sadly, Shakira’s non-lying hips don’t go anywhere near any of them, but the vid is still worth a watch for some high-energy dancing and celebrating. Maybe this video will finally get Americans to care about soccer. (Ed. note: Unlikely.) Watch below!

(The quality is pretty low, we’ll update when a better version hits the web.)
