Within 24 hours, Shakira’s “Dis Track” had more than 63 million views on YouTube. Record: The single “Out of your league” became the most watched Latin song in the history of the video platform one day after its release.
Colombian singer Shakira shared a new song on Thursday, titled “BZRP music session #53” on Youtube. The song, a collaboration with Argentine DJ/producer Bizarrap, is explicitly about Shakira’s breakup with soccer star Gerard Pique, the singer’s 45-year-old ex-husband. In June of last year, the two announced their separation.
In the uptempo song, Shakira takes a hard look at her ex. You say you are a hero. And when I needed you, you were at your worst.” Then: “Sorry, honey, I should have fired you a while ago.” “
A little later, she noted Pique’s new girlfriend, 23-year-old Clara Shea Marty: ‘She has a good person’s name, but she’s clearly not what she seems. (…]I wish you well with my supposed replacement, I don’t even know what happened to you.
Furthermore, Shakira sings, ‘I’m 22 (years old). I traded Ferrari for a Twingo. I traded in a Rolex for a Casio. You go fast, slow down a bit. Plenty of time in the gym, but your brain also needs work.
After the couple broke up, Pique soon appeared in public with Marty, who works in his production house. Pique has not yet responded to the revenge song.
During the song, Shakira also talks about the painful aftermath of a breakup. For example, she sings: “My in-laws have been left as neighbours, the media at my door and in debt to the government”. She is talking about the tax fraud case filed against her in Spain. The Spanish prosecutor claimed that the singer evaded 14.5 million euros in taxes.
Earlier this year, Shakira was much more indulgent in her New Year’s message to her Instagram fans. In it, she wrote, among other things, that those who have been betrayed “must persevere.” “Even if our wounds are still open in this new year, time is in the hands of the surgeon,” she wrote.
