Teaming up with multi-platinum Puerto Rican rapper and singer Anuel for her first single and music video of 2020 following a massively successful Super Bowl performance, the vibrant and surreal clip directed by Drew Kirsch (of Taylor Swift’s “Lover”) continues a tradition of larger-than-life visuals for the superstar. This time around, she rocks colorful high fashion on the table of a bright kitchen as Anuel prepares a meal in the background. It sets the stage for a series of stunning and sexy set-pieces, ranging from Anuel rapping on a high-speed train to Shakira presiding over a banquet table fit for a queen. The images remain just as memorable as the track’s undeniable hook.
In under two months, “Me Gusta” emerged as one of the year’s hottest hits. Beyond 75 million-plus worldwide streams and 37 million views on the lyric video, it scored platinum plaques in US Latin and Spain in addition to going gold in Brazil and Mexico, not to mention Top 10 at radio in Argentina, Chile, El Salvador, Guatemala, Panama, Mexico, and US Latin.
Next up, Shakira will release an exclusive drop of “Me Gusta” merchandise. Be on the lookout! Plus in honor of International Women’s Day, Apple Music highlights Shakira as the cover star of the Dale Play playlist on March 11.
In a career of making history, 2020 might be Shakira’s biggest year yet. After her momentous Super Bowl LIV halftime show performance and the Shakira In Concert: El Dorado World Tour on HBO®, “Me Gusta” only accelerates her momentum.
Shakira is currently in the studio working on new music, which will be released in 2020, with a tour to follow in 2021.
Record-breaking Puerto Rican rapper and urban latin singer, Anuel released a new single and music video entitled “KEII,” which has garnered over 90 million streams in one month. He is also working on his debut album for Sony Music Latin.
