Shakira Gets Sexy With A Guitar On New Album Cover (PHOTO)

With tousled hair, a black bikini top and matching bottoms Shakira clutches her guitar on the cover of her self-titled album.

The Colombian singer-songwriter released the image via Twitter last Friday, ahead of the album’s March 25 release.

Last month, the 37-year-old star announced the release date of her tenth studio album almost immediately after debuting its first single “Can’t Remember To Forget You” Ft. Rihanna. In the weeks that followed Shak premiered the track’s Spanish version as well as a very steamy (and controversial) video with Rihanna for the English version.

“What I like about this album is that it’s sort of going back to my roots, the way I started out in the music industry,” Shakira said in a recent promo video for season 6 of “The Voice.” “I’ve always loved rock n’ roll and I think this album has a little bit more attitude and a little bit more of that rock vibe. So I feel really comfortable and very much in my own shoes.”

Outside of the studio, the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer is set to return to her revolving chair on season 6 of NBC’s “The Voice,” set to premiere on Feb. 24.
