Shakira Makes a Faustian Bargain With T-Pain

Shakira has said that She Wolf is all about someone grabbing on to what they want with fangs and claws, but somehow the presence of T-Pain’s autotuned voice on this otherwise pretty good remix of the single destroys all of that in a bid to extend the single’s chart life.

T-Pain’s reworking of the original’s beat is actually quite good, adding some bounce to the original but his verse and ‘shawty I know…’ shoutouts work to de-claw and de-fang an otherwise monster single by a woman who is far too creative and nuanced in her thinking to be cavorting around with the likes of T-Pain.
