Jean And Shakira Combine Caribbean Cultures
Grammy-Award winning musician WYCLEF JEAN reluctantly took time out from his charity work in Haiti, to collaborate with SHAKIRA on her latest album. The hip-hop star founded his charitable organisation, Yele Haiti, last year (05), to help residents of his homeland with employment, education and environmental issues. He explains, "I've been in Haiti doing a lot of charity work. Shakira took me out of Haiti and brought me back to America and we made MY HIPS DON'T LIE." The Colombian singer now lives in the Bahamas and the two artists share a love of Caribbean culture and wanted to collaborate on a song that brought it to life. He adds, "It's the perfect combination. It's the best of the Caribbean here, it don't get no better than this!"
