Colombian bombshell Shakira won a career achievement award at Univision’s 7th Annual Premios Juventud Awards in Miami on Thursday night.

Fresh from her explosive World Cup performance in South Africa, Shakira kicked off the Latino awards show with a Spanish-language version of her single “Gypsy” followed by “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)”

Dressed in yet another spangly Roberto Cavalli creation, the closet she-wolf also picked up the night’s “Supernova” career achievement award as well as the best video gong for “She-wolf.”

Shakira is the highest-selling Colombian artist of all time, having sold over 50 million albums worldwide. She was signed by Sony music in 1990 at aged 13 and released her first English-language album in 2001. The 33-year old will release her seventh album, El Sol, in September.
