Shakira, 'Loca' -- New Song

Shakira is 'Loca' for a guy, in her first single of the same name from her upcoming new bilingual album, 'Sale El Sole.'

Over horn-heavy merengue beats and techno dance percussion, the hip-knocking Colombian delivers her interpretation of El Cata's 'Loca Con Su Tiguere,' fervently singing about being erratic for a guy, more so than his other leading lady: "She's tied to your love / But your love's only mine, boy."

While Shakira lures in her man with 'Loca''s hypnotic chorus, British rapper Dizzee Rascal delivers a notable rap interlude, affirming that he is, in fact, enraptured by a "crazy girl": "She gives me the runaround / But I stay chasin' / But I mean, yo, I'm in love."

Shakira hit the streets of Barcelona with Dizzee Rascal and a hand-held camera for the song's music video, filming with the city locals in order to express the song's high-spirited ambiance. "Barcelona is one of my favorite cities and has become a second home to me," explains Shakira. "The video is just about having fun and being real in this amazing place with real people."

'Sale el Sol' will be in stores Oct. 19. To hear 'Loca,' tune in to AOL Radio's Pop Latino station.
