    The Associated Press reports that Colombian pop singer Shakira said she would one day like to sing pop songs, if not an entire album, in Arabic!

    Shakira speaks Spanish, has tons of English-language hits, but at a news conference in Morocco, she said that she wants to challenge herself with an album in Arabic. "It would be a challenge to do an album in Arabic. I would first have to learn Arabic," she said. "I am completely open to that experience. ... At some point I would love that to happen in my life."

    Shakira is of Syrian origin and she grew up listening to the Arab world's divas, like Egyptian Umm Kalthum and Lebanese Fairuz.

    Would you dig an Arabic language album done by Shakira?
