Last week, Shakira and the Black Eyed Peas announced their new collaboration, “Girl Like Me,” appearing on the group’s new album, TRANSLATION. The album is out now, and fans can hear “Girl Like Me” in full.
Shakira starts the song, singing the chorus. Her voice takes on a playful tone as she sings the title, ending with an unconventional, meow-like vocal. Then each of the Black Eyed Peas members takes turns rapping a verse, throwing in plenty of Spanish to fit with their Latina guest. They each have their idea of a dream girl, and unsurprisingly, that girl looks like Shakira. Shakira gets her own verse, confirming that she is indeed as great as the boys think. It’s a fun, light song that gets better with each listen.
