LATINA POWERHOUSE

A true Latin music party is about to take place at this year's 21st annual Latin Billboard Awards. Telemundo recently announced the nominees and of course, the most important names in the Latin music industry were included. One of them is Shakira. She appears on the list with four nominations: Latin Pop Artist of the Year, Soloist, Tour of the Year, Feminine Artist of the Year, and Latin Pop Song of the Year. The singer took to social media to share the great news with her followers.

Her fans received the good news just as the Colombian singer begins fitness training for what could be her next tour. On her Instagram account, Gerard Piqué's partner gives us an inside glimpse into her exercise routines with personal trainer Anna Kaiser. In the video, Shak appears to be very motivated while on the treadmill. "Trying to burn off the four pasta dishes from last night," she wrote.
