Full Story

Shakira, often referred to as the “Queen of Latin Music,” is making waves and breaking records in 2023. Since her split from ex Gerald Piqué, the Colombian singer has released several hit songs, including “Monotonía” and “Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53.” With an eye towards the future, she’s also been nominated for several Latin Grammy Awards this year and is in the running for “Song of the Year.” Shakira has undoubtedly proven herself to be unshakable, even after more than 30 years in the music industry. Billboard’s Chief Content Officer of Latin-Español, Leila Cobo, highlights that Shakira’s recent success is “a reflection of what can happen when she is 100 percent committed to the music.”

Shakira has undeniably made an impact on the globalization of Latin music. She has won multiple Grammy and Latin Grammy awards, and this year, she became the first artist nominated in the “Song of the Year” category three times in a single night at the Latin Grammy Awards. Despite living in Barcelona for a period with Piqué, she continued to create hits like “Can’t Remember to Forget You” with Rihanna and “Chantaje” with Maluma.

In 2022, Shakira hinted at hardships in her relationship with Piqué in the song “Te Felicito,” which ended up being true when they announced their separation. Her musical response to the heartbreak was a vulnerable ballad called “Monotonía” with Ozuna. This marked the beginning of her music renaissance, with follow-up singles like “Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53” and “TQG” with Karol G. Jesús Triviño Alarcón, TIDAL’s senior director of industry relations and global Latin, says that her direct and personal approach to her music has resonated with a wide audience. Shakira continues to make waves in the Latin music industry and is set to release an upcoming album that many are excited about.
