The first music in Spanish that I was exposed to (besides La Bamba) was Shakira. In 9th grade Spanish class we listened to this song and had to write down all the lyrics. And then we had to all sing along. I remember being so proud because I was one of the only ones in the class who could sing the fast part.
I wish Shakira still sang songs like she did on the early albums Pies descalzos and Dónde están los ladrones.
