Is 2023 the year of the breakup diss track? If it was last week, yes. On Friday, Miley Cyrus dropped a cryptic new single that celebrates self-love and takes aim at past relationships.
But another, more scandalous revenge song emerged last week and is making far more waves than Cyrus’ ode to singleness. It’s clearly aimed at his ex-boyfriend, Barcelona FC footballer Gerard Pique, and his new girlfriend and his mother. Unfortunately for Piqué, the song breaks records as the most-viewed new Latin song in his YouTube history.
Shakira’s uncompromising lyrics include “I spend a lot of time in the gym, but your brain needs a little work too” and “I was out of your league so you were just like you.” It contains strong lines such as “I’m with people.” The 45-year-old singer appears to be referring to her new girlfriend Pique, Clara Chia, who is 12 years younger.Thia is now 23, but she will be 35 when she is 22. Rumor has it that he started dating Pique. This explains her one of the juiciest lyrics in the song, which Shakira sings that “she’s 2 out of 22 is worth it.”Ferrari [Renault] Twingo, you traded your Rolex for a Casio. “
Shakira and Piqué’s split has been messy from the start. The couple, who have two sons, announced in June 2022 that they were separating after her 12 years together. Shakira was subsequently indicted on six counts of tax fraud for failing to pay €14.5 million in income tax, but now claims this was her original fault. Left behind with my mother-in-law, the press at my door, and debts to the tax office,” she sings on her hit YouTube diss track.
Shakira may still be grappling with the Spanish revenue authorities, but she’s taken the matter of her mother-in-law very well. A life-size witch doll was reportedly built, and residents testified that they heard diss tracks playing loudly from inside their apartments.
Piqué himself has not hesitated to respond to Shakira’s attacks. Since the track’s release four days ago, the former Manchester United player has announced that he will become Casio’s new brand ambassador in response to Shakira’s line mentioning him.[swapping] Rolex for Casio.” And to really emphasize the point, he said, “[swapping] for ferrari [Renault] Twingo’ too, by attending training in an £8,000 Renault.
And with Piqué’s reaction to throwing the ball back into Shakira’s court, we can expect a reaction soon.
