On June 24, 1991, Shakira released her first album Magia when she was only 14 years old. Produced by Miguel E. Cubillos and Pablo Tedeschi, it was considered a commercial failure after it only managed to sell a couple thousands of copies in her home country Colombia. A similar fate suffered its successor Peligro, released in 1993. It's because of this, that later on in her career, Shakira opposed to the re-release of these two albums, because she sees them as immature, always considering her third album Pies Descalzos (1995), as her actual first record, since it was the first one to achieve international success. However, die-hard fans treasure these two first efforts by the Colombian singer, and especially Magia, since it was the one that started it all. Today, Shakira shared on social media a special homage video that her official Barranquilla fan club put together, featuring all of the studio and live albums she's released over the years, as well as her humanitarian labor she's done through her foundation Pies Descalzos and other institutions. After the years and so many success, she may look back at her first two albums differently and not with shame as she once did in the past. Nevertheless, the albums still remain absent from digital platforms, but some unofficial uploads allow us to enjoy them 3 decades later. This year Shakira has been teasing to be back in the studio to record new music. This week she covered the Mexican edition of Vogue magazine and revealed the new single might be dropping this July, with a full new album expected for 2022. Related:
