Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll has been a woman on the cover of various newspapers in recent months. The separation of her from Piqué, the chunks of the Catalan; the health of William Mebarak (her father of hers), Clara chia and her “relationship” with Milan and Sasha (her children of hers), among others, have been a perfect and explosive cocktail for almost anyone to lose their minds .
However, Shakira has a “secret potion” that has helped her cope with that fluctuating tsunami of emotions that she has had to overcome since 2022: music!

“Music has been my passport to the world and my visa. It has allowed me to break with the schemes and prejudices of an environment in which perhaps I would not have had many opportunities if it weren’t for music. Music saved my life and gave me wings to fly. He allowed me to be myself, he rescued me in the most difficult moments. It connected with who I truly am, when I felt like I was losing myself. When I didn’t recognize myself, music was my mirror. She was my ally, and still is. It is my traveling companion, my compass, ”she reflected to People.

After telling what music has been in her life, Shakira reflected and confirmed that her passion has served her to clarify various aspects of her existence, where multiple scenarios were born and almost without any way out, they were generating anxiety and a state of mind that was well It could have affected his musical career.
“Wherever I am in the world, music has been a constant. I’ve been through denial, anger, pain, acceptance, grief, hope, disappointment, hope again, illusion. So many emotions and feelings that at times seemed to be found, it seemed that they could not coexist at the same time within me, which I have only been able to unravel through my songs, to understand myself a little better”.
On the occasion of the publication of Copa vacía, Shakira enabled a “Broadcasting channel” in which she has thanked for the reception of the song and even the way in which they have understood the meaning of both the lyrics and the music video.
But it is not the only interaction for the style that the Colombian has shown in her personal accounts. Precisely, in a short video that she uploaded to her Instagram account, Shakira was shown “emerging” to the surface, using a filter to simulate that rise from the depths of the sea while she did lip synchronization at the time of the chorus.
What is surprising is that Manuel Turizo himself accompanied her in the dynamics, making evident not only mutual respect and admiration, but complicity, as they appeared smiling and relaxed in front of the camera.
