The name Shakira means “grateful” in Arabic, but it means, “shake it, shake it, shake it” in Skin-ese! And from a very young age, this comely Colombian with abs of steel has done exactly that, learning the art of belly dancing to stay in touch with her Middle Eastern roots. Fans have been wanting to touch this 4’11” spitfire since the mid-1990s, when she started her singing career. Combining lusty lyrics with combustible hip-pistoning moves, Shaki burst onto the Latin music scene and then broke through the American market with her hit album Laundry Service. She hasn’t yet broken through the strict borders of her clothing; however, her frenzied shimmying coupled with her penchant for revealing stagewear is a surefire bet for future wardrobe malfunctions. Mr. Skin has his fingers crossed; this heady Colombian brew is a real eye-opener.
