Shakira’s Heartbreak Inspires Record-Breaking Hit
Shakira has transformed her heartbreak into a chart-topping hit, and it has now won her numerous world record awards. On “The Tonight Show,” Shakira and DJ Bizarrap spoke to Jimmy Fallon about their hit song, “Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53,” which has been at the top of the charts since January. Shakira openly admitted that the song is her way of saying “FU” to her ex-partner of 11 years, Gerard Piqué. The Latin pop star revealed that much of her life inspired her to create an anthem for women worldwide.
Shakira performed the song on the show and had the entire audience on their feet dancing. She also proudly posed backstage with her 14 Guinness World Records, which she broke since the song’s release. Among the titles she now holds are the most streamed Latin track on Spotify in 24 hours, the most viewed Latin track on YouTube in 24 hours, the fastest Latin track to reach 100 million views on YouTube, and the most streamed Latin track on Spotify in one week.
Shakira and Gerard Piqué’s breakup after 11 years of a romantic relationship has been the talk of the town. They share two children, Sasha and Milan, and their fans have always admired their relationship. However, their breakup has been rough, and many have criticized Piqué for how he handled the situation. The breakup was also a source of inspiration for Shakira, who created a chart-topping hit out of her heartbreak. On “The Tonight Show,” she shared that much of her personal life, including the nasty split, motivated her to create an anthem for women everywhere. Despite the difficulties, Shakira remains a strong and inspiring woman who has created a sisterhood among her fans.
