Shakira appeared to further address her split from ex Gerard Piqué in her new song with Karol G, “TQG.”
This isn’t the first time Shakira has taken aim at Gerard via song. After the couple announced their split last June, Shakira released the song “BZRP Music Sessions #53” with DJ Bizarrap last month, which includes lyrics like, “You left me the in-laws as my neighbors, media outlets at my door, and in debt with the Treasury” and “I wish you the best with my supposed replacement.”
Two weeks later, Gerard went Instagram official with his girlfriend, 23-year-old Clara Chia Marti, with whom he has been linked since last August.
Enter Shakira’s new song, which dropped earlier today. “Seeing you with the new one hurt me,” she begins. “I already forgot what we lived, and that’s what offended you.”
“My life has gotten better, as you are not welcome here / I saw what your girl threw my way / It doesn’t give me rage, I just laugh,” she continues. “Now you want to come back, it’s clear / Wait for me over there, I’m not an idiot.”
“I don’t repeat mistakes,” Shakira adds before Karol sings, “Tell your new baby that I don’t compete for men, to stop coming for me / At least I had you when you were pretty.”
Shakira further appears to reference Gerard with, “You’re looking for meals out, saying it was the monotony,” and even singing, “You want to get back together, I guess that’s why you’re liking my pictures.”
When asked by Elle in August if her lyrics referred to her IRL relationships, Shakira replied, “I can only say that either consciously or subconsciously, everything I feel, everything I go through, is reflected in the lyrics I write, in the videos I make. When the glove fits, it fits.”
Either way, it’s a jam!
