Shakira + Rauw Alejandro Come Together On ‘Te Felicito’: Look + Listen

Colombian singer/songwriter Shakira has teamed up with Puerto Rican rapper Rauw Alejandro on her latest single, ‘Te Felicito’.

The international superstar’s new Spanish single (‘I congratulate you’ in English) follows her 2021-released ‘Don’t Wait Up’.

In the Jaume de la Iguana-directed video, the ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ singer (born Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll) dances with a robot and goes on a date with an android called Alejandro.

Celebrating two decades since her first English language album was released, in November 2021 the now 45-year old star released a 20th-anniversary edition of her seminal ‘Laundry Service (Washed and Dried)’ LP featuring four bonus tracks, including the previously unreleased remix of ‘Whenever, Wherever’ from Shakira’s electrifying halftime performance at the Super Bowl LIV in February 2020. The re-issued full length also features a Sahara remix of the hit single, as well as an acoustic version of ‘Underneath Your Clothes’, and an Afro-punk take on ‘Objection (Tango)’.

Taking to her YouTube channel at the time, Shakira discussed the album in a video stating: “’Laundry Service’ was a testament to the fact that I was able to do anything. That my commitment was so huge … my commitment to music and to my own dreams that nothing was going to be an obstacle, not even myself. It was the first English language album that I made, and it was a huge challenge for me at the time. At that point, I had had some success in the Spanish world, but it was exhilarating and scary at the same time to push myself to new territories.”
