Listeners worldwide are eager to witness the evolution of Shakira’s sound, and the artist herself has stated that the creation of this album was a transformative journey. In a poignant revelation, Shakira expressed, “Making this body of work has been an alchemical process. While writing each song, I was rebuilding myself.

This eagerly awaited album showcases a collection of 16 tracks, featuring eight brand-new compositions, a remix, and seven singles that have already found their way into the hearts of her fans.

Shakira’s previous work, the critically acclaimed ‘El Dorado’, graced the world in 2017 and boasted an array of successful collaborations with celebrated artists such as Maluma, Nicky Jam, Prince Royce, Carlos Vives, and other notable figures in the industry. Since then, her fans have been clamoring for more, and ‘Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran’ promises to satiate that longing.

Her profound impact on the music industry and her innovative contributions were most recently recognized at the 2023 Latin Grammy Awards, where Shakira took home the accolades for song of the year and best pop song with ‘Music Sessions Vol. 53’, as well as best urban fusion/performance for ‘TQG’. Further cementing its status as a cultural phenomenon, ‘Music Sessions Vol. 53’ shattered records becoming the most-streamed Spanish language song in a single day on Spotify.
