Shakira drops Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran and fantasy music video with Lucien Laviscount

Written by on March 22, 2024

Shakira has released her first album in seven years, ‘Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran’, featuring Cardi B and more.

Dubbed the “revenge album”, the LP, which is ‘Women Don’t Cry Anymore’ in English, kicks off with a sultry pop collaboration with the ‘WAP’ rapper, 31, in ‘Puntería’.

The accompanying music video for the track, a fantasy featuring ‘Emily in Paris’ star Lucien Laviscount, also 31, was released alongside the record.

The album arrives in the aftermath of the ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ hitmaker’s split from footballer Gerard Piqué in 2022, after more than a decade together, and saw the 47-year-old Latin star “rebuilding herself”.

She said: “Making this body of work has been an alchemical process. While writing each song I was rebuilding myself. While singing them, my tears transformed into diamonds, and my vulnerability into strength.”

Shakira told The Times: “[It’s] the transformation of pain into creativity, frustration into productivity, anger into passion, vulnerability into resilience. There were so many pieces of my life that crumbled in front of my eyes and I had to rebuild myself in a way, picking up the bones from the floor and putting them all together. And the glue that kept it all together was music.”

It boasts eight new tracks along with the previously released singles, including ‘Music Sessions Vol. 53’ with Bizarrap, ‘TQG’ with Karol G, ‘Te Felicito’ with Rauw Alejandro, ‘Copa Vacía’ with Manuel Turizo.

In a first for the Grammy Award-winning star, the new album marks her debut release on vinyl, featuring four distinct artwork editions, each paired with an exclusive coloured vinyl variant.

The Sapphire edition is exclusively offered on Amazon, while the Ruby edition has been made available solely at Target.

Fans can find the Emerald edition exclusively on Shakira’s official website, and the Diamond edition will be stocked by all major retailers.

The ‘She Wolf’ singer had not released an album since 2017’s ‘El Dorado’ – which was mostly sung in her native Spanish’ and spawned the singles ‘Chantaje’ and ‘Me Enamoré.’

Prior to that, Shakira released a self-titled record that served as her fourth English-language album overall and it featured the hit single ‘Can’t Remember To Forget You’ with Rihanna.
