Shakira, who is best known for her hit song “Hips Don’t Lie,” has decided to dye her hair red once again. The singer, who is now 44 years old, shared a selfie on Friday where she can be seen sporting her new red locks while wearing a white and pink striped shirt in her makeup room. In the caption of her post, she simply said, “Voilà!” It’s been two decades since she last had red hair, which was during the music video shoot for her song “Ojos Asi.”
Shakira, the famous singer of “Hips Don’t Lie”, has dyed her hair red once again and shared a selfie on Friday to show off her new look. It’s been a year since Shakira amazed her fans with her performance at the Super Bowl halftime show where she performed alongside Jennifer Lopez who also had her daughter Emme on stage. Shakira is now the latest celebrity to sell the rights to her music to Hipgnosis Songs Fund. All of her 145 songs, including the popular tracks ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ and ‘Whenever, Wherever’, have been sold to this renowned music investment firm.
In her post, she exclaimed that the “look” was totally 80s. Shakira revealed that it had been two decades since she donned red hair in her Ojos Asi music video. The artist also shared her thoughts on songwriting, stating that she considered it to be just as important, if not more so, than singing and being an artist. She explained that she had been writing since she was eight years old to make sense of the world around her. Shakira has entrusted her catalogue to Hipgnosis, though the amount she sold the rights for remains undisclosed. Recently, Neil Young sold half of his catalogue for approximately $150 million (£110 million).
One year ago, Jennifer Lopez performed with a siren at the NFL Super Bowl LIV Half Time Show Press Conference in Miami, Florida on January 30, 2020. Recently, the 75-year-old music legend Neil Young signed a profitable contract with Hipgnosis Songs Fund, who previously acquired Lindsey Buckingham’s entire music collection and producer Jimmy Iovine’s producer royalties. Half of Neil’s music collection includes 1,180 songs. The founder of Hipgnosis Songs Fund, Merck Mercuriadis, expressed his excitement about the deal and how it will transform the company.
During the Pepsi Super Bowl LIV Halftime Show on February 2, Shakira graced the stage donning a vibrant red outfit. The love for music is undeniably strong for the founder of Hipgnosis, as he recalls his first encounter with a Neil Young album at the young age of seven. The album “Harvest” became his constant companion, and he familiarized himself with every note, lyric, and pause. Hipgnosis aims to promote their clients’ music on various platforms and ensure that they earn a considerable profit through royalties. Neil Young’s incredible songs have now captured the interest of Hipgnosis, showcasing a shared passion and integrity towards music. Together, they will work towards spreading Neil’s music across the globe on his terms, making sure everyone gets to hear them.
