's always been sexy, but lately we're starting to wonder if she's taking something blue and diamond-shaped with her morning cup of Colombian Java. First there was 'She Wolf' and that
video; now comes 'Did It Again', a track with a fruity promo clip - she literally pounces on her prey, several times over - and equally fruity subject matter. A handy précis: Shakira cops off with a stranger, follows him back to his hotel room for a bit of slap 'n' tickle, and then twigs that - oh crap! - he's married.
"I did it again, I got it all wrong, but it felt so right," our libidinous heroine sings - before admitting that she went back for more the next night. The Neptunes, meanwhile, lay down a taut, contemporary production comprising marching band beats, bouncy synths and an infectious "ey-ey-ey" hook. The result? Quality dance-pop from an artist currently oozing... hold on, don't let your mind run away from you... confidence
