Shakira Turns Down Pittbull

Shakira Turns Down Pittbull
Pop star Shakira turned down rapper Pitbull's offer to join him on his new hit Give Me Everything citing personal reasons.

The Latino rapper said that the Hips Don't Lie hitmaker was his first choice as a partner on the dancefloor favourite, Contactmusic reported.

"I tried to get Shakira on the record but, due to some personal things she was going through, she couldn't jump on the record," he said.

Pitbull then turned to model and singer Nayer instead.

The eight-month recording process was completed when Ne-Yo joined the duo to complete the track, which ended Adele's mammoth run at the top of the US pop charts last week.

Pitbull, 30, has earlier featured on Shakira's song Rabiosa from her 2010 album Sale el Sol.

It is not known what personal things prevented Shakira, 34, from joining Pitbull in the studio, but the Colombian singer recently split from her longtime boyfriend Antonio de la Rua and is now dating soccer star Gerard Pique.
