Shak dares you to join her on the dance floor.
You know that old saying, “Dance like nobody’s watching”? (You might remember it from such work as this poster of a sunset, or this inspirational yogurt lid.) Well, in the new “Dare (La La La)” video, Shakira’s dancing like EVERYBODY’s watching, which makes sense because she’s, like, Shakira.
Much like in “She Wolf,” the Anthony Mandler-directed clip shows the “Empire” singer going
H.A.M. S.H.A.K. with her dancing, ducking and weaving her way around a monument, a mini-hedge maze, and an assortment of colorfully tiled walls.
The Pied Piper that she is, Shakira’s soon joined by throngs of eager dancers as she questions: “Is it true that you love me/ I dare you to kiss me/ With everyone watching/ It’s truth or dare on the dancefloor.” Ooooooooh, dare! Pick dare. No, truth! No, wait… Dare!
Speaking of lyrics, our fave line from “Dare (La La La)” is definitely: “Let’s not recover, time to hangover/ When your eyes got me drunk I was sober.” That’s got to be the most Shakirical combination of words since “I’m starting to feel just a little abused like a coffee machine at an office.
Needless to say, we’re scheduling an appointment to get it tramp-stamped after work. Till then, we’ll just be sitting here with the clip on repeat, mesmerized by the almighty power of Shak — and we don’t care who’s watching.
