In the image, Shakira was laying on a surfboard in the ocean and the beautifully lit photo was a hit with her fans.

Shakira then shared the music video from her latest hit

She generated excitement in a sheer dress and bejeweled bra and glowed in the studio light with her curly locks flowing.

The single is her first official solo track since 2018, a long time for Shakira fans to wait. The last major event with the singer was her Super Bowl Halftime Show performance in 2020 with Jennifer Lopez.

The song is also rumored to be the lead single from her upcoming album, which will be her first since 2017's El Dorado.

Based on the hype the single has already managed to create, it is on track to become one of her most successful releases since Girl Like Me with The Black Eyed Peas last year, and her own Chantaje with Maluma in 2016.
