    The album will drop November 2nd in the US. First single 'Hell's Angel//Loca' is expected to be released to Radio at the end of the month. We all know Shakira is the queen of Latin America, so I expect huge numbers in the end. Especially, because the most songs on the album will be in Spanish.

    Do you think she'll be able to outsell 'She Wolf'?

    Would it be a bad idea to have a thread for both eras?

    It could if "Hell's Angel/Loca" gets as much exposure (if not more) than "La Tortura" did during its peak. If MTV do another "Making The Video" special (which doesn't exist anymore) and her promo team go all out, then she could sell 100K of this album.

    ^ Hey, that's not nice! FutureMan is the biggest Shakira fan I know on this forum. He might have just missed one video, but that's no reason to attack him like that, is it?

    Anyways - yeah, I believe there are no more singles coming from 'She Wolf' and that the era is really over. 'Waka Waka' was the transition song and now it's time for the new era!

    'Las De La Intuición' was a single indeed in Latin America and I assume Spain a well. 'Pure Intuition' was a single in some European countries though:

    In Europe, the song was translated and re-recorded in English as "Pure Intuition" and released to promote both Shakira's Oral Fixation Tour and was the official song for the campaign "Catch the Fever" by SEAT, due to the sponsorship the tour received by the automobile manufacturer. The song also received some airplay, and it managed to peak inside the top ten in Netherlands Top 40 and Top 50, as well as in Russia and Lebanon. It also charted in Romania, Slovak Republic and other Eastern Europe countries. This version was also mixed by Gustavo Celis.
    I know it was a huge radio hit here in The Netherlands. The song was released to iTunes as single and peaked at #8 in the official Dutch Top 40 (sales + airplay) and #7 in the Mega Top 50 (sales only).

    Probably it was not a single for Ktos because it wasnt #1 in the hot 100 :-?

    "Pure Intution" was a single in some European nations, but not everywhere.

    Personally, i'm not interested in a #1, positions are really not important, just look at she wolf, that album would have been top 5 if released a week before i would prefer a good chart run

    #1 in USA for an album basicly in spanish is really imposible, but a top5 debut as FO1 is totaly posible if she has a single of a calibre like "La tortura" was back in 2005

    There's also the possiblility of her English-speaking fans just cherrypicking (legally downloading) all of the English speaking tracks and not buying the entire album. :x

    Let's hope that doesn't happen.
