10 Rare Photos Of Shakira When She Was Young

Shakira, the Colombian singer, songwriter, dancer, and actress, rose to prominence in Hispanic countries first before making the jump to the US. Born and raised in Barranquilla, many refer to her as the Queen of Latin Music. Critics praise her versatility in music.

Shakira started her career under Sony Music Colombia, releasing her debut album in 1991. Her first two albums received almost zero relevance. Following the commercial failure of the first two albums, she rose to prominence in the Hispanic countries with the album Pies Descalzos in 1995.

It wasn’t until her fifth album that she entered the English-language market. Laundry Service, released in 2001, sold more than 13 million copies. That album contains two of her evergreen hit-singles, Whenever, Wherever, and Underneath Your Clothes.

Following the success of the English-language album, she got back to her Spanish roots again. She released a couple of new albums in the Spanish language.

In 2005, she released a new English language album, Oral Fixation, followed by She Wolf in 2009 and Shakira in 2014. All of these albums got gold, platinum, or multi-platinum certification in various countries around the world.

Some of her best singles include La Tortura, Hips Don’t Lie, Beautiful Liar, Waka Waka, Loca, and more.

During her career, she received many awards, including three Grammy Awards, twelve Latin Grammy Awards, seven Billboard Music Awards, and four MTV Video Music Awards.

She also achieved six Guinness World Records. In 2009, Billboard listed her as the Top Female Latin Artist of the Decade. During her career, Shakira sold more than 75 million records worldwide. In 2018, Forbes reported she sold more albums than any other female Latin artist in history.

Among her other records, Shakira is the most-streamed Latin artist on Spotify and is one of only three female artists with more than two YouTube videos with more than 2 billion views.

She is the first artist to perform three times at the FIFA World Cup. But what about some Shakira young photos? Have you seen some of the rare photos of Shakira before fame? We have some of them. Take a look.
