As a prelude to this album, Shakira released last year a single, Chantaje , duet with Colombian singer Maluma, evoking desire and temptation. Its video was the video in Spanish to reach the faster 100 million views on Vevo.

A track dedicated to her husband
Last month, she launched a second piece, Me Enamore , marked by some reggae beats when she recalls her relationship with Spanish footballer Gerard Piqué , with whom she has two children.
Her last album released in 2014, in English and simply titled Shakira spoke of her motherhood.
The couple met while filming the video for Waka Waka, the official song of the World Cup in South Africa in 2010, won by the Spanish team which was evolved Piqué.
