Shakira Oral Fixation Vol. 2 CD (New)

  • Shakira:   Oral Fixation Vol. 2

    2006 reissue version.

    1 CD.   New, unopened, still sealed in shrink-wrap.


    Oral Fixation, Vol. 2  is the seventh studio album and second English language album by Colombian singer and songwriter Shakira.   After attaining international success with her fifth studio effort, Laundry Service (2001), Shakira decided to create a two-part follow-up record.  She released the project as the follow-up to her sixth studio effort Fijación Oral, Vol. 1, with which she had attained international success five months prior. 

    Musically the album follows in the vein of her earlier works.   The album is heavily influenced by Latin pop styles, and additionally incorporates elements of dance-pop and pop rock. 

    Upon its release, Oral Fixation, Vol. 2 received generally favorable reviews from music critics, who complimented it as her strongest project to date. The album debuted at number five on the U.S. Billboard 200.  However, following slow sales, the album was reissued in 2006 with a revised tracklist and two added tracks: "Hips Don't Lie" and an alternate version of "La Tortura".  The album was later certified platinum by Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and has sold over 1.7 million units in the country.

    Three singles were released from the album. Its lead single, "Don't Bother", reached number 42 on the US Billboard Hot 100. The second single, "Hips Don't Lie", included on the album's reissue, peaked at number 1 in the US, becoming her first single to do so. The third and final single, "Illegal", peaked at number 1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs component chart.
