Blake Shelton is also scheduled to perform a duet with popular Columbian music artist, Shakira. ‘Medicine’ is part of her current album (self-titled), made available on shelves since March 25. This country-pop song is a collaboration between Shakira and Nashville song writers, which Blake was most happy to have a part in performing and recording.

Shakira actually initiated the team-up, she mentions about doing something fresh, something new, and doing them with some new people. In an interview with Billboard, Shakira talks of feeling a bit ‘tired of L.A.’ and that she wanted a ‘new point of view’. She was looking for new people to work with that she could feel comfortable being with.  She ended up working with producer Mark Bright and writer Hillary Lindsey. With the song ‘Medicine’, Shakira aimed for a theme which was country style, yet, suited to her Columbian way of interpreting songs. Blake says Shakira really hit the mark in all aspects, the outcome was just as she had conceptualized.

Shakira and Blake also co-work together, they’re both judges on the hit reality TV show, ‘The Voice’ which is currently running its 6th season. If the atmosphere in the recording room was all ‘cooperative’, it’s quite opposite with ‘The Voice’, all judges are in fierce competition with one another as they each fight for the most talented contestants on the show.
