Shakira‘s briefly going back to basics…
We’ve had the great pleasure of half of the Colombian superstar’s upcoming eleventh studio album El Dorado at this point: From the Grammy-winning “La Bicicleta” with Carlos Vives, “Comme moi” with Black M, “Deja vu” with Prince Royce, to the still-everything “Chantaje” with Maluma and the latest single, “Me Enamoré — and they’re all certifiable Shakira gems in their own right. I ain’t got a problem with any of them – Not one!
With just one week left to go until El Dorado drops on Friday (May 26), Shakira has decided to share one more reassuring glimpse from the forthcoming collection called “Nada,” and this one’s certainly no exception.
Crafted alongside her frequent collaborator Luis Fernando Ochoa (“Las de la Intuición,” “Sale el Sol,” etc.), the track sees Shaki taking a break from the dancefloor as she delivers an emotionally raw, Latin power-ballad all about dealing with the long distance from her significant other. “No sirve de nada llegar aún más lejos/ Ni toda la fama, ni todo el dinero/ No sirve de nada si no estás conmigo/ Y la soledad se me clava en los huesos/ No sirve de Na ah-ah nada/ Ah ah-ah nada,” she emotionally cries out on-top of the lingering piano melodies and crashing drums. When you’re Shakira, you ain’t always got time for your boo, so you sing about it.
I’ve been craving a proper Shakira ballad, and this one’s certainly filling that void. LOVE!
