She Wolf

Shakira is the strangest of all international pop titans: As soon as you dig beneath the surface of her sexed-up divatude, things get kooky. Featuring six Neptunes productions, She Wolf is her most blatant overture to American fans yet. But the weird stuff creeps in quickly: The peppy "Spy" is a meditation on masturbation, and "Good Stuff" is a string of musical surprises, from dancehall-style rap-singing to a ridiculously catchy chorus. Shakira's trademark warble is gauche, but whether boasting about sex on "Why Wait" or wailing on the guitar-propelled "Mon Amour," she's a charmer — a globe-straddling star you can cuddle up to.
