Shakira started her illustrious career when she was just a teenager in the early ’90s. Since her first album, Magia, was released in 1991, she has produced 11 albums, with chart-toppers like Sale el Sol, El Dorado, and She Wolf. TECHBAZE REPORTED.
Though the singer was already a star in the Latin music world, she cemented her status as a legend when she released her first primarily English-language album, Laundry Service, in 2001. The album debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 chart and sold more than 200,000 copies in its first week alone, according to Sony/ATV. Ultimately, it went on to sell more than three and a half million copies in the United States and four million copies in Europe.
Shakira’s most well-known song, “Hips Don’t Lie,” took the world by storm with its 2006 release. Sony/ATV said that at the time, it set the record for one million U.S. digital download sales in the quickest time (nine weeks). It has since surpassed three and a half million U.S. sales, while its global download numbers have risen to an estimated 13 million copies.
In 2010, Shakira co-wrote and recorded the official song for that year’s FIFA World Cup, which was held in South Africa. Global sales for the song, “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa),” hit at least 10 million units, Sony/ATV said.

Her most recent tour, the 2018 El Dorado World Tour, grossed $40.7 million in worldwide sales, according to Pollstar.
