Shakira premieres I congratulate you

Colombian singer Shakira, along with Puerto Rican Rauw Alejandro, reached 20 million views on their new single 'Te Felicito'. In this project they mix reggaeton and punk.

The new single became a hit, this being Shakira's first song in Spanish after a long time. After its premiere, it was positioned on the list of musical trends on the YouTube platform.

Shakira premieres I congratulate you and this has a different rhythm, compared to what the Colombian is used to. His choreography has impacted all the followers of the different platforms.

Shakira's children were the ones who helped her create the choreography for the music video.

Sasha was the one who told her mom that he would like me to dance with a robot. In turn, Milan told him to put green fire on the video. Both ideas merged and generated great audiovisual material.

In the video Shakira can be seen in a futuristic setting, in which she is surrounded by neon lights and fire.

With the use of technology, the Colombian creates her ideal man who is Rauw Alejandro. Together they dance a special choreography, with robotic movements.

In this song, Shakira addresses someone who hurt her and has not been completely honest with her.

The video clip was recorded in Spain, together with the director, photographer and graphic designer Jaume de la Iguana, with whom he has worked on previous occasions.

This song in Spanish is the first of Shakira's new album (her last album was published in 2017, called 'El Dorado'). It has been confirmed that the album is already completed. This has some collaborations and solo singles.

One of the collaborations that will be included in this new album is the singer Rosalía.

This would be another of the singers who has performed a duet with the Colombian in addition to: Anuel AA (Me Gusta), Carlos Vives (La bici), Alejandro Sanz (La Tortura), Maluma (Clandestino) and Maná (Mi Verdad).
