New Video: Shakira Featuring Lil Wayne – Give It Up To Me

Shakira‘s new album, She Wolf, just hit store shelves today, but already she’s on single number three. To try to break the lukewarm streak she’s been on, she’s releasing “Give It Up To Me,” which features Lil Wayne. He almost guarantees a hit, right? And to accompany the song, a sexy new video starring Shakira, her hips, and a bunch of scantily clad dancers was released. Again, surefire hit material, right!?

Wrong.

Shakira’s English singing voice has always been a bit of an acquired taste, and usually she can get away with the frog-like wails, but against the Timbaland beat of “Give It Up To Me” it somehow sounds, well… Thankfully, she spends the first verse channeling Nelly Furtado in another Tim-produced song, “Promiscuous.”

And although Shakira shows off some sweet dance moves with her backup dancers, the switch from sexy Latin hip rolls to street stepper all screams desperation. And the Statue of Liberty water dance? No words!

Here’s hoping single four is much better.
