A new exhibit at the Grammy museum in Los Angeles is all about Shakira, and will include various objects from her personal archives, such as three films; several guitars, including one she used in 2006 that is covered in Swarovski crystals; one of her composition notebooks and an immersive space inspired by her El Dorado tour.
"It is an honor to have my career highlighted at the GRAMMY Museum," the Colombian singer said in a statement. "These pieces are testimony to so many indelible moments that I cherish and I am so happy to be able to relive them."
"Shakira: The Grammy Museum Experience" was designed with the goal of exploring the artist's legacy from her beginnings as a Latin rock lover to becoming a superstar, the Grammy Museum said.
"Shakira is a rare superstar who has figured out how to continue to evolve as an artist while growing her enormous audience with her," said Jasen Emmons, chief curator and vice president of curatorial affairs at the Grammy Museum.
The Museum noted in the release that the exhibition is very important because Shakira is an artist who has fused "elements of her diverse ethnic background and multicultural roots, including Lebanese ancestry on her father's side, with Arabic dance and the pop rock she grew up with, to create a richly nuanced sonic universe that allowed her to develop as a creator while attracting a worldwide audience. In the process, she achieved international success and broke down barriers for Latin artists."
Admission to the museum will cost $18 and will be open to the public starting on March 4, through the winter of 2024.
The announcement follows Shakira's most recent release with Argentine producer and DJ Bizarrap, "SHAKIRA || BZRP Music Sessions #53," which has made history. It had more streams in a single day than any other Spanish-language song, was downloaded online more than 14 million times in its first 24 hours, and became the fastest Latin song to reach 100 million streams.
The song debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100, which is another historic moment for Shakira, as she is now the first solo female to reach the Top 10 on the chart with a song recorded in Spanish.
