A source tells Britain's Daily Star, "The lyrics of Loca are about Shakira being crazy so she wanted a video that really showed her personality.
"She decided it would look great having Dizzee film her larking around and capturing it all in YouTube-style clips. In some scenes, he points the lens at himself so it's clear who is recording. It's a much more natural vibe with Shakira running around causing mayhem in Barcelona."
The video hit the headlines last month (Aug10) when Spanish authorities slapped Shakira with a fine for dancing in a fountain without obtaining a permit ahead of filming.
