This week on Remixes/Contests/Submissions…

We’re going to kick things off this week with a certain lady you may have heard of… Shakira wants you to remix her track ‘Rabiosa’!

“Rabiosa” is the latest single off Shakira’s new album ‘Sale El Sol’ and she want you to twist, shake and rattle it up. Download the English and Spanish stems to the song, mix them up and upload your remix to the SoundCloud dropbox. Make sure to share your remix with your friends on Facebook because Shakira will be looking at the Top 10 with the most “Likes” to determine a winner and runners up!
