Colombian singer Shakira, 46, and Argentine music producer Bizarrap, 24, have appeared together on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. The two artists not only performed their hit "Shakira: BZRP Music Sessions, Vol. 53". The two of them also answered questions from host Jimmy Fallon (48).
Bizarrap revealed that he first contacted Shakira via Instagram in July 2022 to propose a collaboration. However, Shakira did not see and reply to the message until two months later. "Not on purpose," she clarified.
Once again, the singer made it clear on the "Tonight Show" how important music is for her to get over the separation from Gerard Piqué (36). The couple, who have sons Milan, 10, and Sasha, 8, ended their relationship in June 2022. The artist and the former soccer player were in a relationship for twelve years. Piqué's split made headlines again when Shakira released the track "BZRP Music Sessions, Vol. 53" in January. Many fans saw it as a revenge song. Among other things, she sings about being too good for the person she used to be with.
Fallon told Shakira that the song was "incredibly" well received: "I'm just waiting for someone to pinch me and wake me up from this dream. It was amazing to feel the reaction of so many people." She added, "What's special about this song is that it's become something of an anthem for so many women. I've had a very tough year after my breakup. Writing this song was very important to me because it's a healthy journey is to channel my emotions." The Colombian singer continued, "I wrote the song for myself, but I also feel like it's for a lot of women who also needed a forum and a voice to represent them."
She felt connected to so many women, according to Shakira, "who have been through the same things, who think the way I think, feel the way I feel and have had to endure the same crap as I do."
