Colombian artist Shakira emerged victorious at this year’s Latin Grammys, securing top honors, including Song of the Year and Best Pop Song for “Shakira: Bzrp Music Session, Vol 53,” a collaboration with Argentinian producer J Bizarrap.
Notably, the track includes references to her former partner, footballer Gerard Pique.
In a noteworthy twist, Shakira received the award from Sergio Ramos, her former Spanish international teammate and a defender for the arch-rivals of Pique’s Barcelona, Real Madrid.
In her speech, Shakira thanked fans for being with her through “difficult moments”, widely thought to be a reference to her split with Pique, and dedicated the award to the “Spanish public”.
Shakira, 46, and Pique, the ex-Barcelona defender, ended their over 11-year relationship in 2022. The former couple shares two children. Pique, 36, subsequently entered into a relationship with Clara Chia, then 23 years old.
In the track, she raps lines such as, “I’m worth two 22-year-olds”, “you swapped a Ferrari for a Twingo” and “a She-Wolf like me isn’t for rookies”.
She also said, “There’s a thin line between love and hate, don’t come back here, trust me” and “when I needed you, you gave me the worst version of you”.
