Shakira took a personal struggle and channeled it into a song fans want to hear whenever, wherever.
The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer, recently reflected on her breakup from Gerard Piqué after 11 years together, and how their split led to her record-breaking collaboration with Bizarrap “Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53.”
“I’ve had a very rough year after my separation, and writing this song has been so important to me,” she shared during a March 10 appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. “It’s been a healthy way to channel my emotions.”
The track, which features lyrics that seemingly shade Gerard and his new girlfriend Clara Chia Marti, has broken a whopping 14 Guinness World Records, as discussed during her appearance on the talk show. The 46-year-old shared that the song’s success has made her feel as though her fanbase includes a “sisterhood” of women “who feel the way I feel, who had to put up with so much crap the way I had to.”
