Shakira slams Gerard Pique in new song with Bizarrap – Rolling Stone

The Colombian superstar dropped everything on the highly anticipated track with viral super-producer Bizarrap

Argentinian producer Bizarrap has a knack for disarming artists during his hugely popular BZRP Music Sessions on YouTube. The viral series featured names like Residente, Paulo Londra and Villano Antillano – all the people who took the mic and let it all out to the futuristic beats of Bizarrap.

Yet no one expected world powerhouse Shakira to be unleashed like she did in the latest BZRP music session. In fact, fans could hardly believe it when Bizarrap announced on Tuesday that the Colombian superstar would be the final guest on his music series, and quickly began the countdown to the YouTube video’s release.

It finally arrived on Wednesday evening and it delivers what was expected. On an electronic beat, Shakira reminds people of the superstar she is and talks about her breakup with footballer Gerard Pique – the pair split last year after an 11-year relationship. “Una loba como yo no esta pa’ tipos como tu (A wolf like me is not for guys like you),” she says, referring to her 2009 mega-hit “She Wolf.”

“I won’t come back with you, not if you cry, not even if you beg me,” she sings in Spanish in one of the most biting lines. “Clearly it’s not my fault that they criticize you. I just make music, sorry if it splashes you. She pauses at the end, emphasizing “pique” in the Spanish word “salpique” – a clear nod to her ex.

The song is Shakira’s latest release and follows her collaboration with Ozuna “Monotonía”, released last October. The video also touched on the breakup, showing Shakira walking through the streets with a hole in her chest as people around her stomped on her heart. Before that, Shakira released “Te Felecito”, an upbeat track featuring Rauw Alejandro. The song, which was released in April last year, hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart – and signaled that Shakira was back in the studio to work on new music. Fans are expecting a new album this year.
