The diss-track has everyone talking.
When I woke up this morning, I thought it would just be a normal Thursday. I wasn't prepared for Shakira to suddenly have an already-iconic new song, "Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53," about her ex-boyfriend and soccer star Gerard Piqué. And by the looks of these Shakira memes, the world as a whole was just as unprepared—and just as delighted.
Over 1.98 million tweets about Shakira have been flooding Twitter today, with users praising the singer for her undeniable star power, empowering lyrics and hilarious disses against her ex.
The song's music video has over 40 million views, and it hasn't even been a full day.
Some of the much-talked-about song's lyrics, translated into English, say:
"You thought you hurt me, but you made me stronger/ Women no longer cry, women get paid"
"I was out of your league, that’s why you’re with someone just like you"
"I'm worth two 22-year-olds"
"So much time at the gym, but maybe work out your brain a bit too"
