Her second album, Peligro (Danger), also featured songs written entirely by Shakira. It was released in 1993 through Sony Colombia, when Shakira was just 15.
Shakira returned to the music business in 1995 with the album Pies Descalzos (Bare Feet), which established her commercial success. Her album The Remixes was subsequently recorded and features remixes from the songs on Pies Descalzos, with some songs re-recorded in Portuguese.
Collaborating with Gloria Estefan, Shakira wrote and recorded English versions of the tracks from previous albums and composed new songs for her English language debut album, Laundry Service. Although it was aimed at the English language market, the rock and Spanish dance-influenced album also features four Spanish songs. The album and its singles established Shakira's musical presence in the mainstream North American market.
