Amid the scandalous news, Shakira hits back by announcing the release date of her new collaboration with Puerto Rican singer and rapper Ozuna. The single is titled “Monotonía” and seems to be about heartbreak and pain.
The Colombian superstar posted a graphic video, where a heart is being stabbed with a dagger. The narrative of the song apparently revolves around broken relationships and disappointments, as Shakira was also recently seen holding a bloody heart during the shooting of the “Monotonía” music video.
The new track is obviously influenced by her recent breakup with the Catalan footballer Piqué. Although she didn’t admit it upfront, Shakira explained in an interview that “either consciously or subconsciously, everything I feel, everything I go through is reflected in the lyrics I write, in the videos I make. When the glove fits, it fits. Like I said before, my music is that channel,”
Ozuna is just as excited as Shakira, he left a comment under her post admiring her greatness and “Queen” status, “Un pequeño rey con una súper reina,” which roughly translates to “A little king with a super queen.”
“Monotonía” will come out October 19th and is the second single released by her this year, following “Te Felicito” with Rauw Alejandro. Shakira has already shared part of the lyrics via Instagram, “It wasn’t your fault/ Nor Mine/ It was the fault of monotony.”
