(1998).

Shakira’s fifth album, Laundry Service (2001), debuted in the English-language market and went on to sell over 13 million copies worldwide.

Shakira has sold over 75 million albums worldwide with a collection of 145 songs, making her one of the best-selling music artists in the world. According to Forbes, Shakira has broken the record for the most albums sold by a female Latin artist in history. Shakira has won a slew of prizes, including three Grammys, twelve Latin Grammys, four MTV Video Music Awards, seven Billboard Music Awards, thirty-nine Billboard Latin Music Awards, six Guinness World Records, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll was born in Barranquilla, Colombia, on February 2, 1977. William Mebarak Chadid and Nidia Ripoll Torrado raised her as their only child. Her ancestors are Colombian and Lebanese. Her father, William, was born into a Lebanese family in New York City. His family relocated to Colombia when he was five years old. Ripoll and Torrado are two Spanish surnames on her Colombian mother’s side, the former of which is Catalan and comes from four brothers who came from Catalonia to coastal Colombia in the 19th century. She has also claimed to have distant Italian ancestors through a “Pisciotti” ancestor.

Shakira is the feminine variant of the name Shakir, which means “thankful” in Arabic. She grew up in a Catholic household and attended Catholic schools. From her father’s previous marriage, she has eight elder half-siblings. Shakira grew up in Barranquilla, Colombia, a city on the country’s northern Caribbean coast. Shakira’s economic ability is sometimes linked to her high IQ, which has been claimed to be 140 by the entertainment press.

Shakira’s first poetry, “La rose de cristal” (‘The Crystal Rose,’ was written when she was four years old. She was enthralled by her father’s ability to create stories on a typewriter as a child, and she requested one as a Christmas present. She received the typewriter when she was seven years old and has been composing poems ever since.

These writings morphed into tunes over time. Shakira’s elder half-brother was murdered in a motorcycle accident when she was two years old; six years later, at the age of eight, she composed her debut song, “Tus gafas oscuras,” which was inspired by her father, who wore dark spectacles to hide his sadness for years.

Shakira’s father took her to a nearby Middle Eastern restaurant when she was four years old, when she first heard the doumbek, a classic Middle Eastern drum that usually accompanies belly dance. She began dancing on the table, and the experience convinced her that she wanted to pursue a career as a performer. She adored singing for her Catholic school’s classmates, instructors, and even nuns, but she was rejected from the school chorus in second grade because her vibrato was too powerful.

She was informed by her music teacher that she sounded “like a goat.” She claims she was also known as “the belly dancer girl” because she would perform a number she had learnt every Friday at school. She explains, “That’s how I found my affinity for live performing.” Shakira’s father took her to a local park to visit orphans in order to inculcate appreciation in her for her upbringing. The photos lingered with her, and she told herself, “When I become a renowned artist, I’m going to assist these kids.”
