“Rabiosa” (English: “Rabid”) is a song by Colombian singer-songwriter Shakira, taken from her ninth studio album Sale el Sol. It was written by Armando Pérez,Edward Bello, and Shakira, and released by Epic Records as the third single from the album, on 8 April 2011. Two versions of the song exist; the English-language version, which features American rapper Pitbull, and the Spanish-language version, which features Dominican rapper El Cata. It is heavily influenced by merengueand dance music. Shakira and El Cata, or Pitbull, sing about each other’s sex appeal in the song.
Upon its release, “Rabiosa” received generally favourable reviews from music critics, some of whom deemed it as one of the strongest tracks on Sale el Sol. Commercially, the English version of the song became a worldwide success, peaking atop record charts of countries like Portugal and Spain, and reaching the top ten in Belgium, France, Italy, and Switzerland. In the United States, it was successful on the Latin record charts and peaked at number eight on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart. “Rabiosa” was certified double-platinum in Mexico and platinum in Italy and Spain.
An accompanying music video for the song was directed by Jaume de Laiguana and features Shakira enjoying herself in an underground party; scenes of her pole dancing are interspersed throughout the video. Critics were positive towards the video, and many noted its similarity to the music video of Shakira’s 2009 single “She Wolf”. The video went viral on video-sharing website YouTube two days after its release and was later marked “Vevo Certified” by joint venture music video website Vevo for reaching more than 100 million views.
