    “Thank you all so much for listening to my music in so many places around the world. I can’t wait to be onstage again singing along with all of you, all of your favorites and mine. It's going to be so much fun. The road to El Dorado starts now,” said Shakira. 

    The tour announcement comes on the heels of Shakira’s 11th studio album release, “El Dorado,” which hit number one on iTunes in 37 countries and held five of the top 10 spots on the iTunes Latino Chart within hours of its release. The five time platinum album, including her already massive global hits - “La Bicicleta,” “Chantaje,” “Me Enamoré,” and “Déjà vu”- currently holds the top spot on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums, marking her sixth number one album on this chart.  Her single, “Chantaje,” featuring Maluma, is 16 time diamond-certified, while its video currently has been viewed over 1.4 billion times, making it the fifth fastest video to reach one billion views worldwide and working its way to soon be the most viewed video of her entire catalogue. 

    Over the course of Shakira’s career, the Colombian singer-songwriter has sold over 60 million records worldwide and has won numerous awards including two Grammys®, eight Latin Grammys®, and several World Music Awards, American Music Awards and Billboard Music Awards. She is also the only South American artist to have a number one song in the U.S., and has had four of the 20 top-selling hits of the last decade. 

    On her first-ever partnership with Rakuten, Shakira commented, “I'm so excited to announce the El Dorado World Tour, I know this will be my best tour yet, and am thrilled to be supported by such an amazing partner as Rakuten, with whom I share the same values.” 

    Global internet services leader, Rakuten Inc, with over 70 services and one billion members across e-commerce, digital content and financial technology businesses, will be the sole presenting sponsor of the El Dorado World Tour. Rakuten is known for its support of major music and sporting events in Japan and around the world. This is its first international pop star sponsorship with an artist of Shakira’s global recognition, which is a bold new step aimed at boosting Rakuten's global branding and customer & community engagement. Viber, a global voice and messaging platform with 900 million users and Rakuten Group Company will also be the official messaging application for the tour.
