Shakira is set to release her new single "Loca" in Spanish and English featuring Dizzee Rascal and El Cata. "Loca" is Shakira's interpretation of El Cata's song "Loca Con Su Tiguere." For the "Loca" video, Shakira took to the streets of Barcelona, with Dizzee Rascal and a handheld camera, as the backdrop for "Loca." Shakira opted to go away from the traditional big production music video to portray a spirited, fun-filled day being 'loca' in the streets with the people of Barcelona.

"Barcelona is one of my favorite cities and has become a second home to me," said Shakira. "The video is just about having fun and being real in this amazing place with real people."
