In a recent collaboration, Colombian superstars Shakira and Karol G have come together to release a new song "TQG", which is set to be part of Karol G's upcoming album "Mañana Será Bonito". The song has already caught the attention of listeners for its bold lyrics that address the singers' past relationships and the pain caused by their former partners.
Shakira and Karol G Take Control of Their Narratives
In the lyrics of the song, both Shakira and Karol G take control of their narratives and address the men who hurt them. Karol G alludes to her recent split from rapper Anuel AA, while Shakira references her public breakup with footballer Gerard Pique after 11 years of being together.
In the chorus, Shakira sings, "What are you doing looking for me, If you know that I don’t repeat mistakes, Tell your new girl that I don’t compete for men, And to stop trying because at least I had you looking good." This bold statement shows Shakira's unwavering confidence and her refusal to repeat past mistakes.
The song also sees Shakira calling out both Pique and his new girlfriend Clara, as she sings, "Seeing you with the new girl hurt me, But now I'm focusing on myself, I’ve forgotten what we lived together, And that’s what has you offended, And even my life got better and you are no longer welcome here, And what your girlfriend said about me, it doesn't make me angry, it makes me laugh."
Shakira and Karol G's Strong Bond
Karol G revealed that she had wanted to work with Shakira for a long time and finally decided to collaborate with her after hearing her song "Monotonia" with Ozuna.
The duet between Shakira and Karol G shows the strength of their bond and their shared experience of heartbreak and growth. Shakira and Karol G's "TQG" is a powerful anthem for those who have been hurt and are ready to move on and focus on their own growth and happiness. The song is a reminder that we can take control of our own narratives and choose not to repeat our past mistakes.
