During her childhood, she grew up watching her father writing stories on a typewriter. At 7, Shakira wrote dozens of poems that eventually evolved into songs.
During her teenage period Shakira was invited to various events in Barranquilla and gained some recognition in the area. It was at about this time that she met local theater producer Monica Ariza from whom she got guidance. Shakira's debut album Magia was recorded with Sony Music in 1991, when she was only thirteen years old. After the poor acclaim of Magia, Shakira's label urged her back into the studio to release a follow up with more hit songs, to give the album potential.
