She is credited with opening the doors of the international market for a new generation of Latin artists.[8][9][10] The journalist Leila Cobo from Billboard said that Shakira "put Latin music on the map" also added that her is "has been the top of Latin music".[11]

Her impact is felt not only through her popularisation of Spanish Music, but also through introducing the culture, rhythms, and musical heritage of the Latin community on a global stage. Throughout her career Shakira has been noted for introducing musical genres, instruments, and techniques from across Latin America, The Middle East, and other regions to a wider audience..[12] Various media describe Shakira as an artist who makes Latin American culture visible in across the world and credit her for opening the doors of the international industry to Latinos.[13]

Her legacy and impact has transcended language barriers, popularising Latin music internationally, being credited with catapulting Latin music to the international market.[14][15][16] Various media outlets agree with popular opinion by naming Shakira as "The Greatest Female Latin Artist of All Time,"[17] highlighting her 30-year career and various achievements.[18][19][20] She is considered a very influential artist for various artists from various communities. Due to her heritage as a Colombian of Lebanese descent she is perceived as particularly influential for Latino and Middle-Eastern musicians. Shakira has also been credited as a very influential visual artist, music videos specifically have been named as a point of inspiration for various artists.[21]

Forbes magazine have noted that Shakira's influence "knows no boundaries", whether in the fields of music or philanthropy.[22] This is in reference to her work in early childhood education and advocacy for education as a birthright for all children. This is work Shakira began at the age of 18 with the simultaneous release of her album Pies Descalzos and charity of the same name, the Barefoot Foundation in English. Her philanthropic efforts have projected her out of the realm of celebrity and into the space of a real influencer of change, working with various organisations and contributing to a number of initiatives to enact positive social change.

Global icon

Many Latino acts have benefitted from Shakira's departure from the 90s version of herself. By globalizing her music and brand, Shakira broke records and language barriers, allowing for younger artists like Bad Bunny and J Balvin to have their songs played on American radio. There were many figurative walls to destroy before songs composed by Latinos would be trendy enough for American audiences. Shakira is largely credited for breaking those walls.

Jose Soto[28]

Shakira's appearance on the international market was somewhat different from the other crossover artists such as Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez, Enrique Iglesias or Gloria Estefan, who already spoke fluent English. Shakira was a Spanish-speaking South American woman who had to learn English.[29]

Shakira is noted to be a "global phenom" whose impact has "reached every corner of the world".[22] The New York Times credited Shakira for the globalization of Latin music, and described her as the "21st century Latina bombshell."[30] Published by the US Bureau of International Information Programs, the journal Global Issues (2006) cites Shakira as an example of a celebrity "in today's globalized world" who "made it big by sharing the uniqueness of their talent and culture with the global community."[31] According to the official website of Colombia, she is credited as an "ambassador" for Colombia "across borders" with her "movements and unforgettable voice" that have "left a trace on every corner of the world."[32]

In reference to Shakira's "blockbuster" popularity outside of the United States and United Kingdom, Live Nation has remarked that "Shakira's numbers outside the US are crazy stupid"[33] Her popularity prompted Rolling Stone to dub her as "the most popular person on Earth." in 2014[34] Columnist, Erynn Ruiz considered Shakira "a trailblazer for women and artists all over the globe."[35] El Correo del Golfo describes Shakira as an "artistic link between the west and the east" for popularizing Middle Eastern sounds in the West, and western sounds in the East (mainly the Middle East).[36]

In 2021, it was revealed that "Shakira" is the most popular name derived from Latin or Arab musicians in the United Kingdom in the 21st century. The name ranks 8th overall among "UK's Most Popular Music-Inspired Baby Names."[37]

In the Middle East and North Africa

Due to her popularity in the Arab World, Shakira is noted to have directly impacted Middle Eastern and North African popular culture. The book titled "The Cambridge Companion to Modern Arab Culture" by Dwight Reynolds (PhD), Professor of Arabic Language & Literature, by the Cambridge University Press, not only credits Shakira with introducing Middle Eastern rhythms and belly-dancing to the pop culture in the Americas and Europe but also points out the artist's impact on the Arab pop culture. The book names Lebanese singers Myriam Fares, and Nawal El Zoghbi to have echoed Shakira's sound and looks in the Middle East.[38] Similarly, a publication titled Popular Culture in the Arab World: Arts, Politics, and the Media published by American University in Cairo Press further asserts Shakira's impact on popular culture in the Arab World. Author Andrew Hammond credits the Colombian artist for impacting and shifting the images of Arab pop stars such as Moroccan Samira Said and Lebanese Nawal Al Zoghbi. Asserting the impact he writes, "[they] have shifted their image and sound in an attempt to follow in her (Shakira's) footsteps".[39]

In India

Shakira's multicultural approach of including ethnic dances in her music has allowed her to be a household name in India. Tons of Indian artists have shown aspiration to follow the Colombian performer's steps in hip-shaking.[40][41] Many claim that Shakira has popularized belly-dancing in India in the early 2000s.[42] The country and the subcontinent have multiple songs and movies revolving around Shakira.[43] Some of Shakira's biggest hits are remade and translated and used in movies, one example could be Indian composer Anand Raj Anand's remake of the song "Ojos Así" to "Yeh Pyaar Hai" for a Bollywood movie.[44] On 25 March 2007, Shakira finally performed for Indian fans in Mumbai, Maharashtra, at the MMRDA Grounds as a stop during her world tour.

Latin music

Shakira is a pioneer who has redefined the scope of Latin American singers and has become one of the most intriguing voices in Latin pop/rock today.

Dana Rodriguez, BMI Foundation[45]

Shakira is mostly credited for bringing latinoamerican music to the entire planet by herself, something that only a few artists had achieved, however, Shakira took it to a greater level[46] likewise she is considered the world's most popular Latin artist, she asserts that while topping and dominating multiple spots on the downloads charts in Finland, Germany, Switzerland, China, and over 35 countries. A survey concluded that Shakira dominates the global reach of Latin music.[47] A 2021 survey conducted by LATFEM, a Latin American feminist organization concluded that Shakira is the most influential female artist among Latin Americas females and the LGBT community. Also, Shakira's 4th studio album, Donde Estan Los Ladrones has come out as the most influential album within the surveyed population. Mexican journalist, Natalia Szendro said, "...many girls were directly influenced by Shakira and I am that generation, in which I felt identified for the first time with someone at that level." The survey also adds, "with age comes the recognition and it becomes very easy to see the legacy and the deep impact that "Shaki" has left." Shakira's third studio album Pies Descalzos also made an appearance on the list.[48] Her introduction of Latin music to mainstream media has been defined as one of her many "revolutionary industry acts."[35] She has shown her Latin heritage to the entire world and this has influenced the sounds we hear today on the radio.[49]

Latin rock

Initially a rock musician in the 1990s, according to The New York Times, Shakira was regarded as the "innovator in Latin alternative rock."[30] Rolling Stone's Leila Cabo has noted that Shakira in the 1990s with her album ¿Donde están los ladrones? was "redefining the parameters" of Rock en español and bringing about the inclusion of women in the genre.[50] Refinery 29 columnist Nicole Collazo Santana has credited the Colombian artist to have "laid out the foundation for Latina rockers.".[51]

Latin pop

Generally, Shakira is credited for introducing Latin artists to pop music.[52] The New York Times has named the Colombian artist "The Titan of Latin Pop" for her leading and outstanding output in the genre for more than three decades.[53] A comparative statement between Shakira and her fellow Latin peers was made, calling the latter "polished" and contrasting Shakira's persona which is "raw and unpredictable. Political, abrupt, outspoken, and talented in every way."[28] Public Broadcasting Service recognizes Shakira as one of the fuelers of the "Golden Age of Latin Music" which is credited to have reshaped America's cultural landscape for the twenty-first century".[54] According to the media, Shakira gave "a new status" to pop in Spanish.[55]


The authors of Reggaeton, published by Duke University Press, have named the Barranquillera as an artist who popularized the genre (reggaeton) in North America, Europe, and Asia in the mid-2000s.[56] Her song "La Tortura" was along with "La Gasolina" by Daddy Yankee the reggaeton songs that extended it to a much larger audience. It was also the first song entirely in Spanish featured on the MTV VMAs.[57][58] According to journalist Juan de Dios Sánchez, thanks to the song "La Tortura" Shakira marked Hispanic music, adding that the commercial status that reggaeton enjoys today is due to the visibility that this genre achieved through Shakira's experiments and the commercial success she obtained with them crediting her for the creation of "Reggaetón-Pop" while highlighting the importance of Shakira's legacy in the genre saying that her fusion music with reggaeton works to guide the musical evolution of the genre as well as modulating machismo.[59]

In the United States

"For a long time the prejudices, the people who handled the radios, the 'gatekeepers' kept the gates closed preserving what they believed had to sound on the radio. That was my turn, I had to face a very closed industry, very obtuse so when I started putting out music in English and I also kept putting out music in Spanish, but I kept mixing and making a fusion of rhythms from Colombian cumbia to Middle Eastern influences (...), wanting that to sound on Anglo-Saxon radio was really a challenge"

Shakira, Andina (news agency)[60]

Shakira is noted to have broken language barriers in the United States and had success both in English and Spanish music. In 1999 Shakira's MTV Unplugged became the program's first episode to be broadcast entirely in Spanish[61] The concert is also noted to be the first time a Latin pop act attempted an Unplugged, as well as the first Latina solo act to do so.[62] In 2001 Shakira's "Whenever Wherever" music video was aired on MTV with both the English and Spanish versions. According to a spokesman for the channel, this is noted as "the first time that U.S. MTV has aired a Spanish-language video."[63] In 2005, "La Tortura" became the first ever full Spanish-language music video to air on MTV without an English version.[64] The same year it also became the first ever Spanish song to be nominated and performed at the MTV Video Music Awards.[65] The 2006 global smash hit "Hips Don't Lie" was selected as one of the greatest songs by 21st century female artists by US National Public Radio, ranked at number 65.[66] Its success has been such that the media point out that possibly without its crossover many Latin artists such as Karol G, Becky G, Bad Bunny, Maluma or J Balvin would possibly not have the recognition that they enjoy today, and it is seen as a great step in the Latin industry since with the voice of Shakira the music industry would stop only focusing on American artists and Latinas would enter the arena such as Paulina Rubio, Thalía and even Fey who also ventured to conquer other audiences.[67]

Impact on other Latin artists

Shakira frequently collaborates with other Latin artists throughout her career to introduce them to a wider audience. Sony Music chairman and CEO of Latin Iberia, Afo Verde hinted that Sony Music Latin paired Anuel AA with Shakira to expand Anuel's reach.[68] Another case is with the urban singer Maluma with whom they made their song "Chantaje" opening doors in the international market and granting him his first entry on the Billboard Hot 100 list.[69] After collaborating with Shakira, Colombian singer, Carlos Vives acknowledged that Shakira's global popularity introduced the non-Latin market to his music. He said, "Shakira is so big that people in other markets learned about Carlos Vives."[70] Shakira is seen as a Latina who pushes the reach of Latino artists on a global scale by demonstrating them to a global audience.[71]

Latin culture

Shakira is considered one of the main references of Latin culture to the world.
Shakira is considered one of the main references of Latin culture to the world.

In Latin studies, María Elena describes Shakira as an idealized transnational citizen. "Her music career and public persona ... occupies the interstices between the Latin American and US Latinos contained within the rubric of Latinidad, Cepeda goes on to note "her multiple subject position (as Lebanese-Colombian, Caribbean-Colombian, female, popular performer, and recent US migrant) contribute to a sense of Latins and Colombians both within and outside U.S borders", with her statements rejecting the tenets and aims of SB 1070, Shakira is also a great example of how a clearly politicized sense of Trinidad operates in defense of all Latinos deemed "illegal" in the eyes of the law.[72] Books like "From Shahrukh to Shakira: Reflections on aesthetic cosmopolitanism among young French people" in which they tell us about the process of how young French people have been greatly influenced by other cultures, including Latin America, accrediting Shakira.[73] In other bookss it is expressed that within books that study the culture of countries such as France, Japan, China and many more from continents such as Africa, Europe, Asia and The Americas, Shakira is the only Latin artist who has the largest representation in Latin American culture.[74] In communication studies, along with Latino studies, Latino identity is talked about and as stars like Shakira have helped redefine what it means to be a Latino in the eyes of other countries as well as Latinos feeling proud to celebrate their Latino heritage, the called "latin explosion" Presided over by artists like Ricky Martin and her, they managed to get Latinos to enter the mainstream market of the world making the community in different countries on several continents, especially in the US, look much more united with the Latino community.[75]


Cataloged by various media outlets as a Latina with the status of a music superstar,[76] Shakira is seen not only as an artist but as a world-class celebrity who covers different fields in addition to music, such as politics and philanthropy, having much influence in situations of support to communities.[77] In addition to being considered the most influential Latin artist in Latin American culture.[78]

Her fame began with her first international album "Pies Descalzos" which catapulted her into the Latin market very immediately after two failures with "Magia" and "Peligro",[79] Shakira was quickly cataloged offensively as "the second largest export from Colombia" however in several countries such as Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Mexico, Argentina and more she was seen as a nascent musical phenomenon calling her as "the greatest Latin artist that Latin America has been able to offer",[80] being invited to all type of interviews questioning her about her lyrics and sounds, thanks to her second album "¿Dónde Están los Ladrones?" Shakira did nothing but increase the curiosity of the Latin public about her and her sounds by fusing the Lebanese culture with her Latin origin.[81][82] Sales were a complete success during the nineties, selling just over 10 million records in Latin America alone until 2001, more than artists already established in the industry.[83]

Cultural effect

Once with the success of her international debut album Shakira was called as a sensation in all of Latin America,[84] her success was such that her public image of that time as a rock girl became a trend in several young Latinas in the words of her peers in the artistic medium like Carlos Vives, who expressed that Shakira was an image that several Latinos felt represented with her and even everyone wanted to be like her.[85] Her appearance in the artistic world was seen as something new discovered that until then had not been seen in Latin America and the media in Latin countries called [86] "Shakira Fever" because of the large number of young people who attended her concerts, they dressed in coin belts emulating Shakira.[87] With Pies Descalzos Shakira not only became a new benchmark for musical entertainment, but also the spokesperson for what a part of the youth of the 90s felt and wanted to express. Shakira was credited with putting Colombian music on the map of the international market,[88] attracting the attention of several countries outside the territory as well as according to national magazines. Thanks to her music, Shakira opened a new door for women in the industry and showed many "scholars" that a 1.57-meter girl could become a superhero for men and women, despite the fact that female artists always had them in the background.[89]

¿Dónde Están los Ladrones?

¿Dónde Están los ladrones? It was Shakira's fourth album released in 1998, it is considered Shakira's best album, one of the best albums of Latin music and rock in Spanish.[148] It is seen as the album that had the most impact on several emerging female artists of those times, inspiring them to compose just as Shakira changed the rules of Latin rock thanks to this album, recovering the genre for women and laying the foundations for Latin rockers. In 2020, "Rolling Stone" magazine placed the album on its list "The 500 best albums of all time" being the only rock album in Spanish to appear.[149] The album led Shakira to be baptized by Time magazine as "The princess of rock" and to be described as "The Colombian Artist of the millennium" in her country.[150] It was also considered the most influential album among women and the LGBT community according to a survey. For Juan Carlos Piedrahita, music editor of El Espectador in Colombia, with this album Shakira began to consolidate the sound that made her recognized throughout the world; "This album is a new starting point because with ¿Dónde Están los Ladrones?? the MTV network opens the doors of its channel to her to rotate her music and make an Unplugged album to demonstrate her power live, something that had not happened with almost any Colombian artist". In the 90s, that artist who was chosen to make a disconnected for MTV was synonymous with artistic excellence and this gave a new status to her career. Before Shakira, names like Maná, Soda Stereo, Charly García and Café Tacvba, with several years of experience, were chosen for this project. Shakira's Unplugged, which featured 95% of the songs from ¿Dónde Están Los Ladrones?, was considered as historic because it became the first recording in Spanish to be broadcast on MTV in the United States and MTV in Europe. This fact in music became a milestone for its global artistic, cultural and commercial impact, and it transcended time for what is considered this album with the songs of ¿Dónde Están Los Ladrones? as a work of art of Latin music. In media words thanks to what the woman from Barranquilla began to communicate with her sound and lyrics on her hands-on album, no one could take their eyes off her and that's when Colombia realized that it had a universal artist among them. The impact that this singer began to generate was such that her concerts were sold out months in advance, her albums sold millions of copies, thousands of letters from her fans arrived at her residences, her look of colored braids became popular. Throughout the continent, the choirs of her songs sounded in children's toys and, to words of the media the most important, she brought music in Spanish to audiences with cultures totally opposed to the Latinoamerican, such as Brazilians, Europeans, Africans and Asiatic.[15]

Laundry Service

When the Latin explosion appeared in the industry, artists like Shakira released their albums, obtaining success in the world, selling 8 million in a year of its release and having more than 13 million sales to date,[151] catapulting several Latin sounds such as tango or folk sounds around the world with her songs. Shakira was a success being compared to artists of the stature of Madonna, Britney Spears, and many more.[151] She was also part of the cover of Rolling Stone "Women in Rock" with Mary J Blige and Britney.[152] Its success is seen as a breakthrough for the Latin market as it helped more South American artists have an easier opportunity to break into the US and world markets. In 2007 the album was included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 200 definitive albums of all time. Laundry Service is considered the album that paved the way for several Latin stars who followed Shakira with their sounds.[153]

Female representation

Shakira is coveted to have broken the gender barriers in the Latin music industry which is considered to be "historically male-dominated" and passed their numbers. A fact that helps girls like her to have the same opportunities as her.[154] Nicole Collazo Santana has mentioned that "Shakira reclaimed the male-dominated genre (pop rock) with music, turned the form into her diary, and gave it to us as a little annotated guide to navigate machismo in all the places we find it in the world."[51] Likewise, Shakira herself explained that her 2009 album "She Wolf was made for all those who have desires which they repress, in the album she expresses how people need to free themselves from all the restrictions that society imposes on them.[155] Adding "My biggest motivation was to make an album that people could just have fun with and forget about their troubles. Dance-oriented. Club-oriented. I want people to have fun with it. Forget about the troubles. Forget about the crisis Forget everything for a minute- at least while they listen to the music."[156] The vice president of MTV explained that in the industry, women are mostly interpreters in the vast majority of times, Shakira is not the case since she is involved in the composition and production of her albums.[157] Shakira from the beginning was seen as an artist who inspires Latino men and women to be proud of their roots, she managed to break down several barriers against the Latino community and facilitated the famous "crossover" to the mainstream market.[158]

Shakira's most notable and impactful career move has been her unprecedented crossover success. Shakira's success was a reason for other Latin American artists to attempt crossing over to the American market, one example is Mexican pop star Paulina Rubio. MTV asserts that "there's no question that Shakira opened doors in this country for artists like Rubio to succeed."[159] According to Emilio Estefan, he was convinced that the album would be "the biggest crossover made in the history of music. Similarly Spin credits Shakira to have paved the way for other Latin artists to crossover, naming names like Maluma and J Balvin.[160] It is seen that thanks to her album "Laundry Service" Shakira was able to forge a path by which several futures Latin artists would follow to reach the international market in a not so complicated way[161] After Shakira's "Laundry Service" the history of music changed or at least how Latinos were represented. Other artists tried to do the same as her such as Fey, Paulina Rubio, Mónica Naranjo and Thalía, although it was not the same magnitude this showed that not only artists who speak English can be successful. Noting that thanks to Shakira, Latino artists now have a greater space in the international music industry in which prejudice and even racism continue to exist.[162] Thanks to the success of her pre-crossover albums, Shakira was seen as the biggest Latin star ever offered.[144]

What tends to happen with Latin artists is that they tend to have one big English-language record or two and then they revert tom making Spanish records... She (Shakira) does a very good job of managing to synergize those two careers. Shakira is competing against iconic female artists and completely standing on her own, but she also has a career in Spanish as well, so she's completely unique in that respect [163]

Rob Stringer, Billboard, 2009

Los Angeles Times has noted that Shakira has successfully made it possible to cross-back-over after a successful crossover. This had not been observed in Latin music. In the public's eyes, artists usually become stuck in their previous "selves" before crossing over and lose their initial fanbase/market. Shakira has made the idea of crossing back over to Latin music after commanding the international audience the fact that would inspire future generations.[164]

In a podcast breakdown of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time" according to Rolling Stones magazine, critics claim that Shakira's fourth studio album; The "frank and witty lyrics about love and heartbreak from ¿Dónde Están Los Ladrones? Inspired a whole generation of women to write their own songs unapologetically," quoting female artists such as Jessie Reyes and Francisca Valenzuela who went directly influenced by it. Valenzuela explains: "" My way of writing and composing influenced a lot. I liked it a lot. I came across that album, it was an important reference point for all the music that I composed as a teenager and that in the end gave rise to my career. When I was older I discovered other singers, but as a girl that was something that caught my attention, seeing in those songs, insecurities, rages and envies, that verbose debauchery that I felt when I listened to other music in English, or of men or in Literature texts. Suddenly that album kind of left an important mark ".[165] Shakira is the Latin artist with the best vocabulary in lyrics of all time and the fourth overall according to a study carried out on different stars of popular music by the organization "Cliqpod" with an average of 151 unique words per 1,000 words.[166][167]

She (Shakira) came with the belly dancing era and everybody, like, in Washington Heights, in the Bronx, they wanted to be, like, belly dancers and everything...Even girls that don't speak Spanish, or they don't really know Spanish, they were just, like, belly dancing. It was just, like, a crazy era.

Cardi B, Billboard, 2020'[168]

I feel so grateful for her existence because she's put belly dance on the map in pop culture at a time where nobody even knew what belly dancing was in Western entertainment. So I really respect that, her fierceness, her sassiness, everything about that.

Nora Fatehi, 2021 [169]

Shakira is noted to have a unique and distinctive dancing style, a combination of Latin dancing with Middle Eastern belly dancing,[170] the latter is derived from her Lebanese heritage. Shakira is credited to have popularized belly dancing in popular culture, inspiring many young female artists. Her approach to dancing was much more influential compared to other artists' follow-the-leader style in dance.[171] Shakira often uses her signature movements in music videos which has led for Billboard to credit her for having "redefined the role of dancing in music videos" while listing her as the best Latin female music video artist of all time.[172] Her hip-shaking has become a cultural phenomenon which is mentioned in a handful of songs such as Fifth Harmony's "Brave Honest Beautiful",[173] and Cardi B's Me Gusta. Her signature hip-shaking moves have become popular dance routines, classes, and contests in North America and the world, these classes and contests are often titled "Shake it like Shakira."[174][175] The book titled "The Cambridge Companion to Modern Arab Culture" by Dwight Reynolds (PhD) Dwight Reynolds Professor of Arabic Language & Literature, by the Cambridge University Press notes that Cabaret performers in Cairo, Egypt have "copied" Shakira's sensational belly-dance looks which are often censored in the country.[38] A publication titled "The Beauty Trade: Youth, Gender, and Fashion Globalization" published by the Oxford University Press by Angela B. McCracken credits Shakira to have popularized Arabian, Hawaiian, and Tahitian styles of dances which are often "body-centric" and have specific dance attires.[176] According to the media, Shakira at the time of giving a presentation can compete side by side with expert dance artists such as Beyoncé, Madonna or Michael Jackson since she not only dances and sings, in her concerts they are an authentic audiovisual display that makes it an experience " of MTV Awards", noting that her dance brand "Belly Dance" can be compared to the famous Moonwalk.[177]


After the Halftime Show of the Super Bowl 2020, the Champeta dance that Shakira performed was a trend on networks like TikTok where it became popular under the name of Champeta Challenge with people from different parts of the world moving their feet to the rhythm of Shakira,[178] thanks to this Disney was inspired to launch a series inspired by this Colombian dance, in the words of one of the actors in the cast: "After the Super Bowl, Shakira made it more popular and now Disney is doing this series for the world."[179]


Latin fashion

At the beginning of her career, Shakira, like many Latin singers at that time, did not have much interest in fashion.[180] According to Vogue España, Shakira's style during the 90's was described as "rocker with hints of metal."[181][182] Vogue Mexico, described Shakira's early style as "unique" fashion that mixed the "urban" and "bucolic", highlighting both the ripped pants she used, as well as her cropped garments, which were often in her favorite shade, black.[183]

Her looks often consisted of jackets, jeans, shirts, bare feet, and long black hair.[182] Shakira dominated and imposed a trend with her used clothes for her look in youth, later the style used in her lead song from her album "Dónde Están Los Ladrones?" which is considered "traced the aesthetic coordinates of the future".[184] Later years Shakira would show a great change of image, the hair was the most criticized and notorious of her stylistic change, various people and some journalists criticized Shakira for wanting to "Americanize" and "fit in" with the other pop divas. Her wardrobe also gave a lot to talk about in the Latino youth mostly, she was shown for a more punk-inclined wardrobe with clothes made of leather and lace, this style would also be widely replicated in some young Latinas and United States during the early 2000s. According to journalist Andrea Arzola, Shakira is considered one of the forerunners of the "Peep Toe" shoe trend, being one of the first to use them.[185] According to the book "The Oxford Encyclopedia of Latinos and Latinas in the United States," Shakira managed to "introduce" another Latino fashion vocabulary with her low-rise leather jeans, leather tank top, and "unique" fashion.[186]

Vogue magazine editor Andrea Arzola described Shakira as a Latin fashion icon calling her a Latin "muse" that provides inspiration,[187] also during the Cannes Film Festival Shakira was a global trend because she wore a dress described as " the revenge dress 2.0" in honor of a similar one worn by Princess Diana.[188][6]

Middle Eastern fashion

Due to Shakira's popularization of belly dancing and its imagery around the globe, Arabian coin belts which are usually worn as a part of bellydancing attire are commonly referred to as "Shakira Belts." The naming is most common in Turkey "Shakira Kemeri".[189] Coin belts were also referred to as "Shakira belts" by Egypt's adviser to minister of tourism which led to controversy in the country, because the belts were already popular in the country before Shakira's use of them. The naming was viewed as a "marketing technique" by the Egyptian media. In 2004, Shakira's use of different belts often inspired by different cultures revived the production and trend of belts in the fashion industry.[190]

The name Fusion Fashion is a name given to a new trend in fashion in the 2000s that Shakira is credited with introducing due to her distinctive Latin and Middle Eastern aesthetic.[191][192] Also, thanks to the fusion of aesthetics, it generated a great impact in Middle Eastern countries where Shakira "opened the doors" for record labels like EMI to give several artists from countries like India the opportunity to work with them.[193]


The look that Shakira captured with her first two international albums was widely emulated by the girls especially for her fans,[194] one of the most imitated things was the hair with colored braids that she was seen wearing in the video "Ciega, Sordomuda", in various Shakira interviews in countries like Peru or Mexico, girls and young people of the time were presented with braided hair and decorated with colored ribbons.[195][196] After this style, she wore red hair for a very short time, current artists such as Karol G and Rosalía who also used hair of this color were quickly compared to Shakira,[197][198] in the 2000s Shakira used a very characteristic hair style consisting of blonde hair that contrasted strongly with black strands, according to Vogue magazine this hair style was the inspiration for artists like Miley Cyrus who during the year 2021 used a very similar style.[199]

Over the years, Shakira has not only gone through musical reinvention, something very characteristic of her were her hair styles that she adopted for each musical era that passed over the years from wavy black hair to the current one, several from the 90's being remembered to date.[200][201]

During the "¿Dónde Están los Ladrones?" era, she had reddish hair for a short time, and at this time artists such as Karol G or Rosalía, when changing the colors of her hair, are quickly compared to the color that Shakira had already worn.[202][203] During her "Laundry Service" era she wore blond hair with very marked black streaks in her hair.[204]


Various garments that Shakira has used in concerts and sporting events in which she has participated have been auctioned at charity events and pages such as ebay. In 2008 Shakira offered a large part of the accessories from her tour "Oral Fixation Tour" for an auction that benefits her foundation.

Magazine covers

Shakira from her beginning in the music industry was taken to be the face of national and international magazines, highlighting her musical style, influence and appearance, in the 2000s Shakira appeared in the prestigious music magazine "Rolling Stone" being the first female latin artist to appear,[217] for months after appearing Along with Britney Spears and Mary J Blige,[218] despite not being a "lover" of fashion, she has appeared as the protagonist of covers in various magazines of all kinds including fashion and style magazines, in 2003 she appeared as the protagonist of Elle magazine in its version for the United States and Korea,[219] in later years Shakira continued to appear on the covers of magazines such as i-D in 2009,[220] Harper's Bazaar (Spanish edition) in 2017,[221] Glamour in 2021[222] and more recently Vogue in its Latin edition.[223]

Middle Eastern music visibility

Shakira is cited to have popularized Middle Eastern sounds in pop culture and the west.[36] Her music is known to be a melange of her national Colombian, and Latin American sounds and her ethnic Middle Eastern music. Shakira is noted to have debunked a myth of belly dancing in Hollywood by de-sexualizing it. Usually belly dancing in western cultures is mythologized idea of it being a promiscuous dance surrounded by men. Roxana Hadadi points that Shakira usually dances alone in non-sexualized settings, and tends to bring forward the "communal attitude of this dance" which she describes it to be "very difficult."[224] The Atlantic Council writes that Shakira's use of Arabian sounds in her music has led to many discussions on cultural diversity and the various cultures that have made America the place it is today.[225]

On another note, western artists who make use of Middle Eastern sounds in their music are often compared to Shakira. One example is Celine Dion's Eyes On Me, the song was heavily compared to Shakira's musical styling by critics, having Nick Levine from Digital Spy describing the styling choice as "Shakira territory."[226]

Colombian symbol

She is seen as something of a saint in her own country. There are statues to her. Writhing teens love her for putting Latin American dance-music around the world: nuns revere her for building schools for orphans..

Euan Ferguson, The Guardian, 2009'[227]

Next to an unfortunate popular link between Colombia and Drug lords, Coffee and Shakira remain rather positive links that popularize the country.[228] In an article about Shakira, El Espectador, with the pen of Dagoberto Páramo Morales, equates Shakira to a "symbol of national identity." Further elaborating that Shakira has successfully managed to "...put Colombia at the top of the artistic world, making it known that Colombians are much more than the corrosive stereotypes with which they have wanted to identify us. We (Colombians) are joy, art, party, culture, sensuality."[229] In an article on Esquire Isabella Garces similarly notes that Shakira unified Colombia, and that she became a positive symbol instead of the negative association of the country with Pablo Escobar and drugs. Garces added, "Shakira fueled Colombia's pride. Journalists praised her, politicians saw her as a true example for her generation, and Colombia's national newspaper".[230] In 2021, Shakira was awarded as the "image of Colombia to the world" by the Premios Nuestra Tierra.[231] In late 90s, then president of Colombia, Andrés Pastrana hailed Shakira as an "Emblem of a New National Era" for bringing forth a rather positive image to the country despite its "violence-plagued" reality.[232]

In 2011, Shakira became the first Colombian artist ever to receive a star on Hollywood Walk of Fame.[233]


Shakira is admired by the media for her fusion of rhythms from various countries and cultures.
Shakira is admired by the media for her fusion of rhythms from various countries and cultures.

A key factor differentiating Shakira from other artists, which is also a trait considered to have impacted pop culture, is her multiculturalism. Her Latin identity fused with her Lebanese heritage have made a lasting impact in America.[234] Her Cross-cultural approach in music has made her one of the few musicians to have a strong fan-base in all corners of the World. Culturs magazine notes that Shakira has a big and diverse fanbase in Latin America, United States and places as odd as Saudi Arabia. Journalist Brook Farely with a background in ethnic studies wrote "She (Shakira) exposes her U.S. listeners to music that is influenced by different cultures other than their own... Shakira's music transcends cultural norms, and takes on a life and personality of its own."[235] In a 2002 article, Bruce Britt from BMI Foundation wrote that Shakira's multicultural influences have helped Shakira to "shake up the pop world. He also added, "If a team of scientists were commissioned to build the perfect pop star, chances are the result would bear a striking resemblance to Colombian singing sensation Shakira."[236]

Impact on women

In an article about Shakira's not-so-typical pop star looks, Carolina Maldonado from Her Campus points out Shakira's impact on women and their image. Unlike most pop stars, and despite being "beautiful" and "fierce" Carolina says "Shakira rarely ever straightens her hair or wears makeup when she performs. She is usually not seen wearing heels or super over-the-top outfits. On stage, she is who she is and all of her performances are based on her talent. She doesn't need a bunch of lights, dancers, props, or even a crazy stage to draw and keep the attention of her audience. Her simple performances, in which she is usually barefoot, are a homage to the art of dance. It's just her and her microphone." This has impacted Latin women to rely on their talents and roots rather than looks.[237]

Recognitions and titles

Appearing on multiple lists throughout her career, Shakira has been ranked by various music outlets as "The Greatest Latin Woman of All Time" in music history, based on her sales, cultural impact, legacy and acclaim.[238] Many critics agree on how she managed to break barriers to position herself on the biggest music charts as a Latin American artist at a time when racism and xenophobia were still strong in foreign territory while Latin rhythms were scarce on the radio. The multicultural magazine "Cultures" named her "The Greatest Latin Artist of All Time" citing all her achievements.[239] As well as the magazine "Rolling Stone" stated that she was "The best-selling Latin woman in history" with 80 million copies sold to date.[240] According to the Acclaimed Music site, Shakira is the most acclaimed South American woman of all time.[241]

Within these studies, various media assure that her Lebanese ancestry with her Latin nationality makes her possess a multiculturality that at the same time makes her a phenomenon within the industry since she is capable of mixing diverse cultures and fusing them in an excellent way both in music and outside of it.[256][257][258] also mentioning the lyrics of her songs such as "Pies Descalzos, sueños blancos", "Octavo Día", "How do you do" and more are seen from a philosophical point of view,[259][260][261] several other of her songs such as She Wolf, No, No creo and Te Necesito have shown a great knowledge of the different philosophical currents in the history of mankind and her music is a reflection of this, her name is taken as an example of a powerful brand in the world by various universities.[262]

This is a great example of how her music has become so popular throughout her career. In conclusion, Shakira has been a very successful Hispanic singer and dancer. Shakira has also influenced the world with music while using her culture to spice things up. She has done this a countless amount of times and is still very popular today.[264]

Shakira for us in Colombia and I think in the entire Latin industry, she's one of the most important singers in the world because she's been able to crossover. She speaks and sings in English and Spanish, so she has everything. She also has three songs in the World Cup. I want to do that in the future—I want to be a legend, not just a singer. A legend. Somebody that you can remember forever.
