Shakira is astonished by her new song’s success. Shakira teamed up with Bizarrap to create “Shakira Bzrp Music Sessions 53,” a song that criticizes her ex-boyfriend Gerard Piqué, 35, and his new girlfriend Clara Chia Marti, 23.
Shakira acknowledged that she was taken aback by the song’s international success.
After 12 years of marriage, Shakira and Gerard announced their separation in June last year. Milan, age nine, and Sasha, age seven, are the two sons of the relationship between Shakira and Pique.
Session 53 lyrics include: “It’s a necessary goodbye. What used to be incredible became routine. Your lips don’t taste anything to me. Now it’s the complete opposite. You left me because of your narcissism. You forgot what you used to be. Distant with your attitude, and that filled me with worry. You didn’t give even half. I know I gave more than you.”
Shakira, 45, took to Instagram to express her surprise at the song’s success.
“What for me was a catharsis and a relief; I never thought I would get straight to number one in the world at 45 years old and in Spanish.
“I want to embrace the millions of women who stand up to the ones who make us feel insignificant.
“Women who stand up for what they feel and think, and raise their hand when they disagree, while others raise eyebrows.
“They are my inspiration
“And this achievement is not mine but everyone else’s.
“We gotta get up 70 times 7.
“Not as society tells us, but in the way we can think of, which serves us to get ahead for our children, our parents, and those who need us and hope in us.”
