Shakira fans have a reason to celebrate! The Colombian superstar’s new album, El Dorado, has arrived, dropping Friday (May 26).
Shak made the official album release with a big “fiesta” at The Temple House in Miami the night before the highly anticipated release date. Wearing a beautiful short gold dress (honoring the title of her album, which means gold), the superstar was accompanied by her parents, musical colleagues, press and work team.
The singer celebrated El Dorado’s release with a five songs performance, which included two special guests Nicky Jam and Prince Royce. While waiting for midnight to really start the celebration, Shak kicked off her performance with her acoustic version of “Chantaje.”
In the meantime, she paused to present her oldest son Milan’s favorite song “Nada” (Nothing). The singer explained that the song was the first one she wrote and the last one to be recorded — she simply could not find a musical format for the lyric.
Then, Prince Royce took center stage to perform “Déjà vu,” which was Royce’s 15th No. 1 on the Tropical Songs Airplay chart (dated April 29).
Shakira then introduced her second guest, Nicky Jam. “Honestly, the person who’s coming next stole my heart,” she said. “He’s talented and is now part of my list of friends.” Both performed their first collaboration, “Perro Fiel,” a reggaeton jam with very flirtatious lyrics.
