Because the beats are immediately recognisable as Timbo's handiwork, and Wayne's rap kicks things off, it's easy to presume this is a "Timbaland ft. Shakira" affair. However, the wiggly-hipped one imposes herself as the track goes on, trilling a very Shakira-ish chorus, name-checking her "She Wolf appetite" and dishing out this memorable couplet: "People say men are like kids / Never saw a kid behave like this." The song, in case you were wondering, is basically all about sex, so it should slot in nicely (phnarr) on the first half of Shakira's album.
Anyway, if your curiosity's been piqued, you can listen to 'Give It Up To Me' in full over on Shakira's MySpace page.
