Shakira's 'Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran': A Triumphant Return to Music After Personal Upheaval


Shakira Set to Release New Album "Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran" After 7-Year Hiatus

After a seven-year break since her last studio album, "El Dorado," Shakira is making a triumphant return to the music scene with her highly anticipated 12th album, "Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran" (which translates to "Women No Longer Cry"). The album, set to release on March 22, promises to showcase Shakira's versatility as an artist, featuring a diverse mix of pop, rap, reggaeton, and other genres.

In a recent interview with the Sunday Times, Shakira opened up about the personal struggles that have influenced her new music. The Colombian superstar described the album as a representation of "the transformation of pain into creativity, frustration into productivity, anger into passion, vulnerability into resilience." She revealed that the album was born out of a period of personal upheaval, during which she had to rebuild her life from the ground up.

Shakira's new album comes on the heels of her highly publicized split from former pro-soccer player Gerard Piqué, with whom she shares two sons, Milan and Sasha. The singer admitted that she had put her career on hold for a long time to support Piqué's football career, saying, "There was a lot of sacrifice for love."

The album's title track, "Las mujeres ya no lloran," was featured in Shakira's January 2023 hit song "Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53," which won her song of the year at the 2023 Latin Grammys. The song, which many fans consider a diss track aimed at her ex, helped Shakira "exorcise a lot of the demons that were tormenting [her]," she said.

As Shakira prepares to share her new music with the world, she reflects on the importance of accepting pain and finding ways to express oneself through difficult times. She even revealed that her son Milan wrote two "amazing songs" during her separation from Piqué, showcasing the family's shared passion for music as a means of healing.

With "Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran," Shakira is poised to make a powerful statement about resilience, creativity, and the transformative power of music. Fans eagerly await the release of this deeply personal and genre-bending album, which promises to be a testament to Shakira's enduring talent and her ability to turn even the most challenging experiences into art.
