Shakira feat. Pitbull – “Rabiosa” – (2010)

Shakira songs always seem to have a fun feel to them. But that’s probably due in part to her being Latin. The beats help too. “Rabiosa” was the third single from Sale el Sol. The Spanish version (there’s always a Spanish version) features Dominican rapper El Cata and the English version features Pitbull, who also speaks Spanish (both rappers are unnecessary on this song). The combination of Shakira’s Spanish (there are still Spanish vocals in the English-language version) and the horn section – along with the beat – make this a perfect summer song. Also, the video rocks if you’ve ever wanted to see Shakira dance on a pole. And I love when she says “ratata.”
