Karol G + Shakira Come Together On ‘TQG’

Colombian superstars Shakira and Karol G combine their star power ojn the long-awaited collaboration “TQG,’ a biting break-up anthem that takes unfaithful boyfriends to task. 

Featured on Karol’s forthcoming LO, Mañana Será Bonito, (2.24,) the two Latina singers trade lyrics about men who’ve done them dirty. As art imitates life Karol announced her split from the rapper Anuel AA in 2021, and Shakira refers to her public break-up with soccer player Gerard Piqué following an 11-year relationship. 

In a statement about the song Karol (born ?) said “When I started it, it had a personal meaning to me that evolved over time and though it doesn’t represent things now, it was a particular moment in my life.” She had wanted to collaborate with Shakira for a long time, but hadn’t thought about asking her to jump on “TQG.” Then she heard “Monotonía,”Shakira’s collaboration with Ozuna, and she realized Shakira’s story fit perfectly with what she was doing on her own track. “Listening to that story and where she was at, ‘the song ‘TQG’ made a lot of sense,” Karol says. “I sent it to her and she loved it.” 

“TQG” follows Shakira’s mega-viral Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53, which broke the record for the Latin track with the most-streams in a single day on Spotify. The song, which includes several veiled references to Pique, currently has 350 million views on YouTube. Before that, Shakira had dropped “Monotonía” and “Te Felecito” with Rauw Alejandro.
