The Colombian singer Shakira made a guest appearance on Jimmy Fallon's "The Tonight Show" on Friday, where she and her collaborator Bizarrap performed their hit song "Out of Your League". The performance received widespread praise and quickly became a trending topic on social media, with many praising the audience for their enthusiastic singing.
The song was written by Shakira in the wake of her breakup with footballer Gerard Pique and has since become an anthem for many women who have been through similar experiences.
A Sisterhood of Women
In a conversation with host Jimmy Fallon, Shakira spoke about the personal significance of the song and the response it has received from her fans.
"The thing with this song is that it’s become an anthem for so many women out there," she said. "I’ve had a very rough year after my separation and writing this song has been so important to me. It’s been a healthy way to channel my emotions.
After we put out this song, I really felt that I don’t only have fans out there, I have a sisterhood of women who have been through the same things I’ve been through, who think the way I think, who feel the way I feel, who’ve had to put up with so much crap the way I have," she said with a laugh.
The performance received widespread attention, and British singer Adele commented on it at one of her concerts in Las Vegas, saying, "I saw her on Jimmy Fallon ... her ex-husband is in trouble," she joked. The performance was watched nearly 10 million times on YouTube and set social media ablaze, with many praising Shakira and Bizarrap's powerful performance.
Shakira's guest appearance on "The Tonight Show" was a powerful and emotional performance that resonated with many women. The song has become an anthem for those who have been through similar experiences and has once again proven that Shakira is a talented and influential artist.
