Live from Paris

Genre: Pop; Lead Performer: Shakira; Status: In Season; Music Label: Sony Latin

Colombia’s most popular (legal) export is always at her best when you can see her — the magic of those whirligig hips has been turning Spanglish jingles like ”Whenever, Wherever” and ”She Wolf” into video hits for a decade. And Shakira clearly knows it. On the Live from Paris combo-pack album/DVD, she writhes and dry-humps through her catalog like the world’s ­highest-paid strip-aerobics instructor, showing off plenty of skin — but sadly, not much musicianship.
