Shakira says she is dedicating her time this year to looking after baby bump and her son Milan.
Speaking at the launch of her new fragrance, Rock!, the 37-year-old said that she is currently concentrating on her impending motherhood and her one-year-old son before beginning work on a new Spanish album next year.

Luckily for the busy singer her partner, Barcelona centre-back Gerard Piqué, is a hands-on father.
"He is very involved with his son, he is always there for him and that's a bit advantage for me as I cannot imagine it any other way".
Bottles of Rock! are fittingly shaped like guitars
Shakira turned heads as she launched Rock!, her fifth fragrance, on Thursday.
The Colombia-born star stepped out in a shimmering metallic dress and thigh-high Louboutin boots as she presented the perfume in Barcelona.
The lucky few who were present at the launch posed with Shakira and took home a bottle of Rock!, which joins Elixir, Wild Elixir, Eau Florale and S by Shakira in the Hips Don't Lie singer's fragrance collection.
Whenever Wherever hitmaker Shakira shared a behind-the-scenes photo in the run-up to the perfume's debut.
"The launch party of the new #RockByShakira fragrance is today in Barcelona! ShakHQ," was the caption which accompanied a picture of a giant bottle of Rock! against the back drop of Barcelona's unique architecture.
