sound stike wants shakira to boycottHopetracker| To date Shakira hasn’t joined Sound Strike, a group of well-known pop music performers who have declared they will no longer perform in Arizona, a key venue for Latino artists. Today’s NYTimes reports that Kanye West, Sonic Youth and Massive Attack have joined the boycott.

“We love Shakira and love her music and thank her for standing with us during the bill’s consideration,” said Alfredo Gutierrez, chairman of the economic sanctions committee of Somos America, a coalition of human rights and religious groups that is leading opposition to the law. “But ultimately we want her to join the others and not come here commercially.”
