When you think “Shakira” you think of pop, dance, Latin, and maybe some swiveling hips. Now when you think of Shakira, think COUNTRY!!
The pop icon has teamed up with country superstar, and fellow Voice coach, Blake Shelton to record the song. She told Blake she was going to write a country song, and she did! Although it’s not necessarily going to be serviced to country radio, Blake thinks it’s a hit!
“Medicine” can definitely be categorized as pop-country, and the sound isn’t too far off of what ladies like Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift are recording these days. The song captures Blake’s country style as well as Shakira’s poppy flair.
Blake recorded a pop song with another fellow Voice coach, Christina Aguilera over a year ago called “Just a Fool”. This season on The Voice, Blake’s wife, Miranda Lambert joined Team Shakira as an adviser.
