Shakira’s Remake of “Waka Waka” Hurts My Soul


“I’m sure by now many of you have heard Shakira’s ‘Waka Waka’, a white-washed remake of an old Cameroonian song by Zangalewa masquerading as a World Cup anthem. As I’ve heard Shakira’s version throughout the tournament, I’ve been quite confident that puppies somewhere have been dying. And then something odd happened. I started humming “Waka Waka” everywhere and I’ve been hating myself ever since.” (Nutmeg Radio)
