YouTube records have been set by a Shakira song about her ex-partner Gerard Pique cheating on her.
Out of Your League’s video has been viewed more than 63 million times in just 24 hours, making it the most popular Latin song of that period.
After more than a decade of marriage, Shakira, 45, and Pique, 35, an ex-footballer for Barcelona, got divorced in 2022.
Additionally, the couple has two children together.
Shakira collaborates with Argentinian producer and DJ Bizarrap for the first time on this four-minute pop song.
Shakira joins J Balvin, Luis Fonsi, and Daddy Yankee on the illustrious list of Latin artists who have set YouTube records.
It’s not her first song about the breakup; three months ago, she released Monotonia, which was more about heartbreak than seeking vengeance.
Shakira sings about Pique’s new alleged 23-year-old partner in the diss track.
She compares the relationship to trading “a Ferrari for a [Renault] Twingo” and “a Rolex for a Casio” in Spanish, stating that she is “worth two 22-year-olds.”
The Colombian singer also talks about her fight with Spanish authorities, who say she didn’t pay €14.5 million (£12.8 million) in income tax.
In the song, Shakira seems to say that Pique left her while all of this was happening, with her in-laws as neighbors.
She sings, “Lots of time at the gym, but your brain needs a little work too,” and she also criticizes his workout method.
Gerard Pique has been posting about his new seven-song project, King’s League, but he has not responded to the song online.
When they split up in June of last year, they said they were focusing on co-parenting Milan, who is nine years old, and Sasha, who is seven years old.
