Shakira's latest offering her best yet - here's why.

1 The 37-year-old Colombian singer’s 10th album is her most personal yet. She’s in love and clearly wants the world to know it.

2 The touching guitar-driven track 23 is a love song to her boyfriend, Spanish footballer Gerard Piqué, whom she met four years ago when he was 23.

3 The couple’s 14-month-old baby son, Milan, makes his singing debut – well sort of! Little Milan features on 23. You can hear him coo at the end.

4 The record features everything from reggae and dubstep to pop, but the Hips Don’t Lie singer shines when she returns to her rock roots on tracks such as Empire.

5 It features the reggae-inspired track Can’t Remember to Forget You, featuring Rihanna. The video is super sexy.
