A savage dis track by Shakira in which the Colombian star ridicules her former partner footballer Gerard Pique has racked up more than 87 million YouTube views in 24 hours making it the most-watched new Latin song in the video-sharing platform’s history.
Shakira and Piqué, who played football for Barcelona and Manchester United announced their split in June last year after spending more than a decade together. They share two children together but Pique has kicked off a romance with a 23-year-old model Clara Chia.
In the diss track, a collaboration with the Argentinian producer and DJ Bizarrap, Shakira, 45, sings: “I’m worth two 22-year-olds,” adding: “You swapped a Ferrari for a [Renault] Twingo/You swapped a Rolex for a Casio.”
The singer also sings: “a she-wolf like me isn’t for rookies” … “I was out of your league, which is why you’re with someone just like you”, and she suggests her gym-loving ex should spend a little time training his brain, too.
This is not the singer’s first song about the break-up but is definitely her most lethal. Monotonia came out three months ago, but was more of a heartbreak song than one vying for revenge.
