Shakira might be missing in action from the music scene, but that doesn't mean she's not one busy bee. Yes, she's taken time off in 2015 from the recording studios and her sold-out tours, but the Colombian singer has had a full plate as a mommy of two, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and a well-rounded businesswoman. In fact, some of her latest ventures include a mobile game app, a new fragrance and her voice-over debut in Disney's upcoming flick "Zootopia."

Despite her busy lifestyle, Shak has revealed that she will soon return to the recording studio and will hopefully drop album number 11 in 2016. Yes, please! The last time the songstress dropped an album was in 2014 with her 10th studio production "Shakira.," with hits such as "Dare (La La La)," "Empire," and "Can't Remember To Forget You" featuring Rihanna. "By the end of this year or the beginning of the next year I will start working on my new album in the studio," she said in a recent press conference. "Now I want to be first and foremost a mother, because after three months I will no longer have a baby. He will be grown up as a healthy one years old boy," she added.

In the meantime, fans can enjoy Shakira's latest fragrance "Love Rock!" that launched this month. The perfume, which is in a bottle shaped like a guitar, is Shak's sixth fragrance and has notes of jasmine, rose, bergamot and red apple. "The fragrance symbolizes energy, music, sells personality and shows the character of the modern woman," she said. The more impatient fans can download and play her new app game "Love Rocks starring Shakira" on Apple or Android and let the days pass until her forthcoming album is out!
