Shakira Says ‘Última’ Will be The Last Song About Ex Gerard Piqué

Shakira is ready to move on. In a recent interview, the Colombian singer-songwriter opened up about ‘Última’, the final song she intends to write about her ex-partner Gerard Piqué, with whom she shared an 11-year relationship before their split.

‘Última’ wasn’t originally part of the plan for Shakira’s upcoming album, ‘Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran’ (‘Women Don’t Cry Anymore’). However, as the album neared completion, Shakira felt compelled to write one last song to process her emotions.

‘Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran’ will be a 16-track journey through Shakira’s emotions. The album will feature a mix of eight brand-new songs, a remix and seven previously released singles that have already garnered significant attention. Hits like ‘Music Sessions Vol. 53’ with Bizarrap, ‘TQG’ with Karol G, ‘Te Felicito’ with Rauw Alejandro and “Copa Vacía” with Manuel Turizo will be included alongside the new material.

She continues: “He started to cry with this song and I’m like, ‘OK, I get it.’ It’s not only about me. This song is not about me only, or him. But I’m glad I was able to include it in the album, even if it’s the last song, the last song that I write to him.”
