Shakira hits the studio and confirms new music is coming
Shakira is back in the studio working on new music.
The 'Hips Don't Lie' hitmaker's 11th studio album, 'El Dorado', turned three on Tuesday (26.05.20), and Shakira excited fans as she shared a studio snap.
Alongside the picture, she wrote on Instagram: "I've read your tweets bosses! I'm on it!"
The 43-year-old star has so far in 2020 released the Latin song 'Me Gusta' with Puerto Rican rapper Anuel AA.
The pair sampled Jamaican reggae fusion group Inner Circle's song 'Sweat' at the beginning of the track.
Following the release of a remix of Camilo and Pedro Capo's 'Tutu' in October, the 'Whenever, Wherever' singer teased her fans that new music was on the way.
She spilled: "I'm just taking every input that I receive and it's turning into inspiration.
"Yesterday I finished a song and I was so thrilled.
"So we'll see. I just want to put music out there."
Meanwhile, Shakira - whose last studio album was 2017's 'El Dorado' - recently graduated with a degree in Ancient Philosophy from the University of Pennsylvania.
The singer managed to complete the long-distance four-week course alongside being a full-time mother to kids Milan, seven, and Sasha, five.
Shakira - who is married to soccer star Gerard Pique - took to Instagram to pose with her certificate, which revealed she had studied a module about "Plato and his predecessors".
Alongside the picture, the star - who is fluent in Spanish, English, Arabic and Portuguese - wrote: "I just graduated from my 4 week Ancient Philosophy course with the University of Pennsylvania (@uofpenn).
"I know ... my hobbies are very impractical, but it took a lot of hours after the kids were asleep. Thank you Plato and predecessors for all the "fun" over the past month! (sic)"
The 'Waka Waka' singer previously revealed she dressed like a man to go to university and even used a different name.
Shakira took a break from music and enrolled on a history course at UCLA after releasing her 2006 album 'Oral Fixation Vol. 2'.
The pop star - who revealed she would dress more masculine as a disguise - said: "I needed a break from me. The universe is so broad, I cannot be at the centre of it. So I decided to go to the university and study history for a summer course, just to kind of switch gears, taste the student life.
"I used to wear a cap and a big backpack, I looked like a boy. I didn't get recognised. Some people looked at me very suspiciously, a few people asked me, but I told them my name was Isabelle.
"I would go to university over and over again if I could."
