As the pop icon who doesn’t seem to age turns 44 today, we are looking back at some of her most iconic hit songs, that still have a reserved spot on our playlist. From classics like Hips Don’t Lie to evergreen anthems like Waka Waka, the singer never disappoints and always wows fans with her phenomenal talent. 

 

Over her almost 3 decade long career, the singer and mentor has managed to build a niche for herself with her Spanish music, build a global fanbase, and feature as a judge on reputed shows like The Voice. Here are the top Shakira songs that have us grooving:

 

Waka Waka: This 2010 song is still going strong after a decade since its release, even today, the first song that comes to people’s minds when one says ‘World Cup’ is Waka Waka, the official anthem for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. 

 

Hips Don’t Lie: This catchy 2006 song is a trip down memory lane for every 90s baby! Super groovy, catchy and upbeat. Great for workouts, the club or any other activity that may come to mind, this song is a classic in more ways than one!

 

Cant Remember to Forget You: Another timeless classic from Shakira is Can’t Remember to Forget You featuring singer Rihanna. The song’s lyrics talk about yearning for a loved one and how the singer could not “remember to forget him”. Playing to her strengths, Shakira, this time with Rihanna accompanying her, displayed her sensuality with fluid moves in the video.
