Best of 2010 Singles: #20 Shakira, "Did It Again"
Shakira is weird. Between her voice, her fascinatingly ESL singing, and her oft-bizarre lyrics (which she generally pens herself), to my ears she's like the South American Bjork, only on a much broader global-popstar-scale. The second single from 2009's She Wolf (an incredibly underrated album), "Did It Again" was produced by the Neptunes and is on their future-shit electro-pop tip; the US version even features what may be the first recorded instance of a non-annoying rap by Kid Cudi. This is what pop radio should be sounding like right now, not all that Katy Perry and Ke$ha bullshit.
