GRAMMY® and Latin GRAMMY® Award winning artist Shakira’s 12th studio album Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran will be out March 22nd! Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran notably marks her first album in seven years and is a dazzling testament to Shakira’s resilience and strength and music’s power to transform even the most trying experiences into precious moments.


Said Shakira: “Making this album 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.”


Earlier this week, fans got a glimpse of what is to come during her Super Bowl commercial tease. The new album boasts 16 tracks, 8 new plus a remix, and 7 previously released smash hit singles, including “Music Sessions Vol. 53” with Bizarrap, “TQG” with Karol G, “Te Felicito” with Rauw Alejandro, “Copa Vacía” with Manuel Turizo, and more.


The 7 previously released tracks already have a combined total of 3.7 billion plays on Spotify. Shakira partnered with Spotify to give fans access to a special Pre-Release Album Experience. This experience includes a pre-save function, release notifications, a countdown clock, the album artwork, title, tracklist, exclusive clips, merch, and much more!


TQG” and “Music Sessions Vol. 53” both debuted globally at #1 on the Spotify Top 50 chart. “Music Sessions Vol. 53” is notably the Spanish language song with the most streams in a single day in Spotify history. Shakira and Bizarrap also won ‘Song of the Year’ and ‘Best Pop Song’ for the track at the 2023 Latin Grammy® Awards.


Shakira’s latest album marks her debut release on vinyl, featuring distinct artwork editions in Canada. The Sapphire edition will be exclusively offered on Amazon Canada. Fans can find the Emerald edition exclusively on Shakira’s official website, and the Diamond edition will be stocked by all major retailers.


Shakira already holds the place of the best-selling female Latin artist in history, with a decades-long trajectory of trailblazing and hit-making, but has continued to solidify her legendary status in the past year due to the runaway success of latest releases. Her success will no doubt continue with the release of her new album, as her vulnerability, confidence, and passion highlight both her personal challenges and her triumphs.

 

Shakira is a Colombian singer-songwriter and multi-GRAMMY® award winner. She has sold over 95 million records worldwide and has won numerous awards including three GRAMMYs®, twelve Latin GRAMMYs®, and multiple World Music Awards, American Music Awards and Billboard Music Awards, to name a few. She is the most-viewed female artist, and one of the top-5 artists overall of all time on YouTube with over 20 billion cumulative views, and the most-streamed female Latin artist of all time on Spotify. Shakira’s last album “El Dorado” ranked #1 on iTunes in 37 Countries, won Best Pop Vocal Album at the 2017 Latin GRAMMY® Awards, and Best Latin Pop Album at the 2018 GRAMMY® Awards. With over 10 billion streams, it is one of the most-streamed female albums of all time. In 24 hours, “SHAKIRA || BZRP Music Sessions # 53” made history both on Spotify with over 14 million streams and on YouTube with over 52 million views. The song debuted at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 and is another historic moment for Shakira as she is the first solo woman to reach the Top 10 on the chart with a song recorded in Spanish. It is also the Spanish language song with most streams in a single day in Spotify history. In September, Shakira received the MTV Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music Awards and in honour of her award put on a breathtaking performance of her greatest hits.
