Coachella 2024: Shakira makes surprise appearance with Bizarrap, announces world tour

Earlier this year, the rumors, hopes, and speculation that Colombian pop icon Shakira would headline Coachella in 2024 were shut down after Coachella reportedly declined to book the singer for the gig. While the news disappointed fans, who would have loved to see Shakira at the top of the bill, one of her biggest advocates once again had her back.

Argentine record producer and songwriter Bizarrap extended a special invitation to Shakira to perform their collaboration, “Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53.” This joint performance, of the diss track aimed at Shakira’s ex-partner, footballer Gerard Piqué, marked a significant return for the pop icon, who hadn’t released an album since “El Dorado” in 2017.

The song, which reached No. 1 in 16 countries, was a milestone for both Bizarrap and Shakira. It became Bizarrap’s first Top 10 single and Shakira’s fifth, and also her first all-Spanish track, on the US Billboard Hot 100 since “Beautiful Liar” with Beyoncé.

Shakira rose from a podium during the performance with the Argentine DJ’s primary background screen reading, “La Loba Se Viene” (“The She-Wolf is coming”). The crowd erupted with screams while they both kicked the performance into full gear. After the collaborative set ended, Shakira shared an emotional thank you and a message of gratitude to her fans and Bizrrap for inviting her to perform at the festival. Before dancing off the stage, she announced her world tour promoting her latest album, “Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran.”

There is no doubt that Shakira is slated to become a stadium sellout act and perhaps this was the festival’s last chance to book her before then. But who knows? Although she didn’t get the much-deserved headlining spot, the performance is just another example of how Shakira continues to handle whatever is thrown her way. La Loba might, in fact, return.
