CD Servicio de lavandería Released 13 November 2001

Estimated sales: 20 million worldwide

Laundry Service was Shakira's breakthrough album during her cross period in 2001-2003. This is her first English album, although it `did` contain 4 songs in Spanish. In Spanish-speaking territories the album had a Spanish `name` Servicio De Lavanderia. All the songs on the album except Eyes Like Yours (which is a translation of Shakira's trademark Ojos Así) are original and were fully or partly composed by Shakira. Freddy DeMann handled the management of that era of Shakira's career and the promotion, including the Tour of the Mongoose (2002-2003), was very long and brought Shakira from Argentina to Canada and from the UK to New Zealand. Shakira recorded this album during almost 2 years in Uruguay and the Bahamas. Whenever, Wherever (and its Spanish counterpart Suerte), the first single from the album, was first heard in Colombia and the USA in late August 2001 and immediately became number one. Subsequently, the single was climbing the tops of charts in more than 30 countries during the period of over 6 months.

Shakira started the promotion in Colombia and Spain in October 2001 and then returned to the US for the American album release (November 13, 2001). For the first time she appeared in a number of American prime-time TV shows and open-air concerts and continued the promotion in Europe, South America and Asia up to July 2002.

At the end of 2002 Shakira embarked on her first ever worldwide tour (Tour of the Mongoose) that included 61 stops in the Americas and Europe. Reportedly, one tour show cost $1mln.

Other singles that were promoted were Underneath Your Clothes, Te Dejo Madrid, Objection (Tango), The One and Que Me Quedes Tú. This album won dozens of awards worldwide.

So far, this is Shakira's best-selling album.
