Shakira sings The XX

Now here’s one we didn’t see coming. It turns out Shakira’s new single ‘Explore’ borrows samples and lyrics from the XX’s ‘Islands’ and despite our worst fears it’s actually not all that bad. See for yourself in the clip below:

  • Hil

    All hail Shakira, Colombia’s second-biggest white export!

    If anyone could actually get a smile out of the XX, it’s her.

  • Darce

    This sounds about as good as my ass.

  • Wow, I wonder what the hell the xx think of this. Wonder if they’re flattered.

  • I’d imagine they’ll just shuffle awkwardly and stare at the floor…
