* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: In the middle of the generally laidback and serious "Fijacion Oral Vol 1.", comes the [[TheB52s Rock Lobster]] inspired "Escondite Ingles". The effect is jarring, coming as it does between the wistful "Especial Dia" and the dark "No", but the song is well liked by fans and showed Shakira could still have fun amongst the serious material.
** Shakira also did this with the Arabic techno of "Ojos Asi / Eyes Like Yours" on "Donde Estan Las Ladrones / Laundry Service" respectively, but in both cases they were at the end of albums that were largely filled with alt-rock.

Things are looking big for Shakira. "[[Music/HipsDontLie Hips Don't Lie]]", a collab with Wyclef Jean, is still the world's best-selling single of the 21st Century and is the world's biggest pop song ever as well as being the YouTube video with the highest number of views until 2007 ''and'' spawning "Hips Don't Lie (Bamboo)", the 2006 [[UsefulNotes/TheWorldCup FIFA World Cup]] anthem. Later songs "She Wolf" and "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)" proved that she is still one of the biggest stars in the world right now; "Waka Waka" is currently the fourth most viewed YouTube music video ever (after Gangnam Style, Baby, and Bad Romance) and was the 2010 World Cup anthem.

* CanonDiscontinuity: Her first two albums, ''Magia'' and ''Peligro''. They were recorded when she was only 13 and 15 and did poorly commercially; Shakira was also disatisfied with her lack of creative control on the album. They were pulled from print at her request and haven't been released outside Colombia, and generally aren't counted as part of her discography.

* ReligionRantSong: "How Do You Do" is a downplayed type 1. Rather than a direct attack on God or religion it questions the true nature of God, as well as the suffering brought about by religion and God himself.
-->How many people die and hurt in your name?
-->Hey, does that make you proud, or does it bring you shame?
-->And if our fate have all been wrapped around your finger
-->And if you wrote the script, then why the troublemakers?

* DistinctDoubleAlbum: Shakira, having written over 60 tracks after Laundry Service, decided to make her follow up album a double album. To make this more interesting, she recorded the first disc in Spanish ("Fijacion Oral Vol 1") and the second disc in English ("Oral Fixation Vol 2"), and released them separately (later in a box set). The Spanish disc also has a decidedly more Latin feel. There are only two tracks that had complete translations released for both albums - "En Tus Pupilas" aka "Something", and "Dia Especial" aka "The Day And The Time". Later on, "La Tortura" and "Las De La Intuicion" received English translations and "Hips Don't Lie" a Spanish one. Shakira's choice of guest artists also related to the market she was appealing to, the former having popular Latin American artists Gustavo Cerati and Alejandro Sanz, and the latter having internationally popular artists Carlos Santana and Wyclef Jean.


Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The original pressings of Oral Fixation Vol 2 don't have "Hips Don't Lie" and have its lead single "Don't Bother" as the second track. Both the album and the single failed to live up to sales expectations, and there were very real fears Shakira's career in the West was over. Fortunately, "Hips Don't Lie" was soon after recorded and released on a revised edition of the album that also included the Spanglish version of "La Tortura" that had been a hit in the US. "Hips Don't Lie" was such a huge hit it came to define Shakira's career and ensured most copies of the album you'll find include it.
