Shakira hasn't been missing in action, per say, but she has been very M.I.A. from her music career. Shak, who has been busy with her philanthropic work as UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, her recent role in Disney's "Zootopia," her new parenting app, and of course, with motherhood, has hinted at a possible studio album following her 2014 self-titled production. 

Earlier this month, the mother of the adorable Milan and Sasha, shared two photos on Instagram that clearly teased her 18 million followers. "Writing songs! / Escribiendo canciones! Shak," said one of the posts. Another post simply stated: "Drumming." Yes, we are crossing our fingers that the writing and drumming are part of her long overdue album. 

The last album the Colombian songstress dropped was two years ago with "Shakira." The 10th studio production includes hits such as "Dare (La La La)," "Empire," and "Can't Remember To Forget You" featuring Rihanna

In a press conference held in October 2015, the 39-year-old singer promised to start working on an album for 2016. "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. "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.

Various news reports reveal that Shak will return to her roots, releasing an all Spanish-language production. In the meantime, check out her complete discography. Which is your favorite Shakira album? We like "Pies Descalzos"!
