Welcome Shakira to Angry Birds Pop!

AB POP has had its share of visitors lately – starting with the Piggy Island flockers, Red & Chuck, but recently we’ve been teasing about an extra special guest coming to the game that knows a thing or two about pop. In fact, she’s a pop star!

Our next #ABPOP visitor isn’t your average bird. She’s an actual POP star. Can you guess who it is? pic.twitter.com/apWaDlGEYj

There were some excellent guesses by our Twitter followers – Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, even our very own Matilda. But now, the cat is officially out of the bag!

Yup, Shakira will be gracing Golden Island with her honest hips in a brand new update to Angry Birds POP! So what does that mean exactly? It means that you can play as Shakira Bird! Use her new special Love Bubble to turn bubbles into free turns, and spread the love. See the trailer below:

There are also two new areas (45 levels total) where you can play as Shakira bird – Love Lagoon, and Cloudy Peaks. It’s the biggest Angry Birds Pop update yet, and it’s available right now!

If you don’t have AB POP, get it here for free!
