Shakira just bombarded us with a new album and the news of her return to the music scene has us leaping out of our chairs in excitement. This release comes right in time for her highly anticipated Super Bowl LIV halftime show performance, scheduled just two weeks away ! This latest Spanish collaboration titled “ Me Gusta” comes with Anuel AA , a Puerto Rican rapper.
‘Me Gusta’ aka ‘ I like Sounds’ is romantic yet, riddled with tension and yearning. They play the role of a couple whose long term love is on the rocks, and the song follows their attempt to reclaim their lost charm. The single features the hook “la la la la” of the 1993 reggae hit titled “Sweats” by Inner Circle! The duo is being critiqued for the same but will fans overlook it and let it pass for old times sake?
‘Me Gusta’ showed up after Shakira wrapped up the year with an epic performance at the Davis Cup with a medley of her hits! Last November , her theatrical release of ‘Shakira in concert: EL Dorado World Tour’ hit the box office along with a live album. Fans all over the world await the highly anticipated super bowl LIV on February 2nd 2020! Honestly, we’re still not over her record hit ‘Waka Waka’ which was the 2010 official FIFA world cup song!
Over the past two years, Shakira’s actually been quite busy! She released her Spanish album “El Dorado” and it topped the charts in 37 countries upon release and even won Best Latin Pop Album at the 2018 Grammy Awards and the Best Pop Vocal Album at the 2017 Latin Grammy Awards.
“Nuevo sencillo!!! New single!!!” Shakira announced on social media following Anuel AA’s announcement. Their posts were accompanied by a picture offering an insight into the new single with both artists gazing at the camera, Shakira dressed in an elaborated pale peach outfit graces a table with Anuel AA behind.
We can’t wait to see what else she’s in store for us in 2020!
