What happens when you cross the world’s sexiest Latina, a smokin’ hot tennis star and a lush track? The hottest vid of 2010, that’s what!
The hotly anticipated single from Shakira’s third studio album ‘She Wolf’ is finally about to hit our screens in an exclusive MTV premiere Friday February 26 @ 10pm (AEST).
‘Gypsy’, which was shot by Spaniard Jaume de Laiguana in Barcelona, mainly features a scantily-clad Shakira getting steamy with hunky tennis star Rafael Nadal as her love interest.
A thirty second preview clip of the video, which shows the Colombian singer tenderly embracing the tennis star, was enough to get whispers swirling of a possible romance between the pair. But the gossip mongers were way off – not only is the sexy starlet engaged to Antonio de la Rua, the son of Argentina’s former president.
In a recent interview with the Latin American Herald Tribune, Shakira revealed the real reason she chose the hunky sportsman for her love interest was because she needed someone that she could relate to.
“I thought that maybe I needed someone I could in some way identify with. And Rafael Nadal is a person who has been totally committed to his career since he was very young, since he was 17, I believe,” she said.
Speaking to the Latin American Herald Tribune, the hip-shaking sensation also maintains that this single was one that represents her way of living life.
“I’ve been on the road since I was very young, so that’s where the gypsy metaphor comes from,” the singer said.
Shakira, who has sold over 50 millions albums world wide and is currently working towards building a new school in Haiti through her Barefoot Foundation, said she can’t wait for her fans to see the new vid.
“It came out very pretty and we’re really happy,”
