Shakira Wore the Coolest Leather Chaps to Perform Her New Record-Breaking Hit
"Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53" is taking over the world.
Shakira and Bizarrap performed their smash-hit song "Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53" on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in March and absolutely killed it.
Donning very cool-looking black leather/pleather chaps for the occasion, Shakira sang the electro-tinged banger surrounded by fans who knew every single line.
That's no surprise, of course, because the song is a cultural phenomenon. Per EW, Shakira has broken 14 (!) Guinness World Records with "Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53," including the most streamed Latin track on Spotify in 24 hours, the most viewed Latin track on YouTube in 24 hours, the fastest Latin track to reach 100 million views on YouTube, and the most streamed Latin track on Spotify in one week. With all of those streams, it's no wonder Shakira's fans can sing the track back to her almost verbatim.
"Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53" has reached number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and the top 10 in more than 20 charts around the world.
"I have a full album’s worth of music that I’m so excited about," Shakira (a Voice Coach alum!) told ELLE about music that's coming down the pipeline. "And some songs you’ll hear imminently, some are collaborations. Some are in English and some in Spanish, different genres. But I’m really, really thrilled about not only the body of work that I have right now to share with the people who are waiting for it, but also how gratifying the whole process has been for me. How therapeutic as well. I thought I was done with my album. But every time I get in the studio to do, like, one line or something, or to mix a song that’s almost ready to come out, then I end up with new music because I feel creative right now, and I feel that is an incredible outlet for me to make sense of things."
