Shakira is considered by many to be a great talent. As Gabriel García Márquez once wrote of her, “Shakira‘s music has a personal stamp that doesn’t look like anyone else’s and no one can sing or dance like her, at whatever age, with such an innocent sensuality, one that seems to be of her own invention.”
With a catalog of 145 songs, Shakira has sold more than 85 million records, making her one of the best-selling music artists of all time. Forbes Colombia reported that as of 2018, she is the top-selling female Latin artist of all time.
Her discography includes 11 studio albums, five live albums, two compilation albums, 68 singles (including 13 as a featured artist and 5 promotional singles) and 62 music videos.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BOOK/HIRE SHAKIRA?
(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire SHAKIRA for an event?)
(i.e., what is SHAKIRA booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for SHAKIRA, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
