Shakira first met the Spanish football player Gerard Piqué in the spring of 2010 when Piqué appeared in the music video for her single "Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)
." They became romantic partners the following year and had two children together, but in 2022, the couple announced their separation after 11 years.
Shakira's lyrics were born from a devastating discovery a few days prior to the song's creation. Eagle-eyed fans of the Colombian star spotted Pique's new girlfriend, Clara Chia Marti, in a Zoom interview that the footballer gave in 2021 when Shakira was away working. She believes it proves that Pique had been unfaithful to her for years before their split.
Over Bizarrap's futuristic pop-electronica beat, Shakira slams Pique's infidelity and includes lines dedicated to Marti.
