Shakira and a not so typical remix

When the She Wolf came out in 2009 ( which is the sixth studio album by Colombian singer-songwriter Shakira) it was a big hit.
As we can read in Nielsen SoundScan:
She Wolf had sold 379,000 copies in the United States and over 2 million worldwide.

(Nielsen SoundScan by the way is the biggest information and sales tracking system created by Mike Fine and Mike Shalett, this is the official method of tracking sales of music and music video products throughout the United States and Canada.)

When looking back to the charts we see that "She Wolf" debuted at number fifteen on the Billboard 200 chart with sales of 89,000 units.

And according to Wikipedia:
..the album was Shakira's lowest charted album so far. After two weeks, the album sales total was 158,000 units.
However, the album has been moderately successful worldwide, having been certified Gold in Russia, Ireland, Switzerland and in many more countries.

It's not surprising when sometimes a remix is better than the original song. I will show a remix of the song 'She Wolf' in this post, which was became widespread in Europe. 
Its just 1:20 minutes long created by 'Deeplick Productions', and its a little bit special. The style of this remix reminds me of a Kelly Rowland song ('Work') which was also remixed and it became much better song after it. I will write about this in another post.
