Shakira has made headlines with her latest diss track aimed at her ex-boyfriend, Gerard Pique. The song, titled “Out of Your League,” has amassed over 63 million views on YouTube in just 24 hours, breaking Latin music video records. The song contains lyrics that criticize Pique’s new alleged 23-year-old partner and his workout technique. This marks Shakira’s first collaboration with Argentinian producer and DJ Bizarrap. And joins a hallowed list of Latin performers to break YouTube records, such as J Balvin, Luis Fonsi, and Daddy Yankee. Shakira had previously released a heartbreak song about the breakup, titled Monotonia, three months ago.
In her song “Out of Your League”, Shakira sings that she is “worth two 22-year-olds.” She also compared her relationship with Gerard Pique to swapping “a Ferrari for a Twingo” and “Rolex for a Casio” in her song in Spanish.
In her song “Out of Your League”, Shakira references her run-in with the Spanish authorities. Claiming she has failed to pay €14.5m (£12.8m) in income tax. She also mentions that Pique left her whilst all this was going on with her in-laws as neighbors. She also criticizes Pique’s workout technique and sings “lots of time at the gym, but your brain needs a little work too.”
What is the response of her ex to the diss track?
Gerard Pique has not reacted to the song online but has been posting about his new seven-a-side project, King’s League. When the pair split in June last year, they released a statement saying they were focusing on co-parenting their two children Milan and Sasha.
Growing Popularity Of the Diss Track
Song also reached the number-one spot on the Billboard Latin Chart. Solidifying Shakira’s position as one of the most successful and influential Latin artists of our time. Despite the song’s success, Shakira has stated the track is not meant to be taken as a personal attack. But rather as a form of catharsis and a way for her to express her emotions following the end of their long-term relationship.
Shakira’s fans have expressed their excitement and support for the singer on social media. They are praising her for her honesty and vulnerability in the song and music video. The song has also sparked discussions about the importance of self-expression and the healing power of music.
With “Out of Your League” breaking records and dominating the charts, it is clear that Shakira’s music continues to resonate with audiences around the world and that she is a force to be feared in the Latin music industry.
Shakira is no stranger to the spotlight. The latest controversy surrounding her comes in the form of a €14.5m tax fraud case. Spanish prosecutors allege that she and her family lived in Barcelona between 2012 and 2014. This means she should have paid tax in Spain on her worldwide income for those years. They are seeking an eight-year prison punishment and a penalty of more than €23m if she is condemned. The singer, however, has blamed the country’s fiscal authorities for waging “an obscene press movement” against her. And pressed she owes them nothing.
This new single has reinvigorated the discussion around Shakira’s tax fraud case, as the song contains references to her legal battle. In the track, she sings about her in-laws as neighbors. And her debt with the taxman, showing her resilience in the face of the scandal. Fans have shown their support for her and her music, with many praising and standing up for herself and her rights.
It remains to be seen whether this single will have any effect on the case. But it has certainly sparked a new wave of interest in Shakira’s legal battle and the events surrounding it. With the world focused on her new music and ongoing trial, the pop star has proven that she continues to be a strong and resilient figure. Both musically and in her legal battles.
