She Wolf crooner Shakira is known for her bilingual catalog of Spanish kissed pop ballads, but she is ready to bulldoze past new language barriers according to a recent press conference. The singer was in Morocco earlier this week where she revealed, “It would be a challenge to do an album in Arabic, I would first have to learn Arabic. I am completely open to that experience … at some point I would love that to happen in my life”. She also revealed that while growing up she was exposed to Middle Eastern singers like Fairuz and Umm Kaithum. The big reveal happened at the Mawazine World Rhythms Musical Festival, an eight day long festival with over sixty acts from across the globe, other performers included Kanye West and Lionel Ritchie. Shakira is currently on a world tour and is also slated to perform in the Bollywood film Azaan.
