Target’s first music partnership for 2014 is with Colombian pop star Shakira, who will provide the retailer with an exclusive deluxe edition of her self-titled upcoming album, due out March 25. Shakira’s new Target TV spot will premiere during the 56th GRAMMY Awards on Jan. 26, the same day fans will be able to preorder the album only at Target and Target.com.
The TV spot, which will feature Shakira doing her trademark hip-shaking, was directed by Marc Klasfeld and was shot at a small town outside of Barcelona, Spain, where the singer currently lives.
The Target edition of "Shakira." features three exclusive tracks that the artist says she penned specifically for the retailer.
Already, early buzz on the album helped catapult Shakira 15-5 on Billboard’s Social 50 chart this week, gaining an additional 750,000 new fans overall.
Part of that traction came from “Can’t Remember to Forget You,” featuring Rihanna, the first single off the singer’s new set. The song vaulted into the top 20 of the Mainstream Top 40 and Latin Pop Airplay charts after its first day of availability.
"Shakira." is the singer’s 10th studio album.
