Shakira covers The xx

Here at Bolster we have had a few bands that dominate our posts. If you’ve been reading the blog over the past year you’ll know that The xx is one of our favourite bands and that we like to write about them a lot. It should come as no surprise that we’re writing about them again.

But don’t worry we’re not trying to make you listen to them again, instead we’ll make you listen to Shakira doing a cover of “Islands”. That’s right. Shakira has a new album, Sale El Sol, which is half in English and half in Spanish. The xx cover follows the original quite closely with an additional dance beat behind it. I guess Shakira has been covering the song in concert for awhile now.

    as much as I love Shakira (and it’s substantially more than I should…) I like the original better. Thanks for posting this!
