Shakira, Bizarrap Shatter Spotify record with “BZRP Music Sessions #53” collaboration

Last week, Shakira surprised the world with BZRP Music Sessions #53, which turned out to be her diss track about her ex Gerard Piqué. 

She is reportedly continuing to shatter records with “BZRP Music Sessions #53,” which is a collaboration with Bizarrap.

With clever wordplay in Spanish, she name-checked Piqué and his current girlfriend Clara Chía Marti. Her cutting lyrics generated countless memes. Bizarrap, who is the most-streamed artist from Argentina on Spotify, produced the song.

On Friday, Shakira and Bizarrap’s BZRP Music Sessions #53 debuted at No. 1 on Spotify’s Global 50 chart. With over 14.4 million streams, Shakira smashed the record for the Latin track with the most-streams in a single day on Spotify. Shakira, who is in the fourth decade of her music career, celebrated the news in a post on Instagram. She described the song as a “catharsis” and a “relief.”

“I never thought that I would reach number one in the world at 45 years old and in Spanish,” Shakira wrote. “Women who defend what they feel and think, and raise their hands when they disagree, while others raise eyebrows, they are my inspiration.”
