Colombian icon Shakira is an unstoppable force coming straight off one of her most successful years. In 2023, the “Whenever, Wherever” singer received multiple accolades, broke music records, and became a voice of empowerment for women everywhere. Her hit with Argentine DJ Bizarrap “Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53 which broke the record for fastest Latin track to reach 100 million views on YouTube after reaching the number in approximately 70 hours and broke the record for most views in 24 hours with 63 million in a single day on YouTube. The song was one of of four to reach the top of the Latin music charts she released last year along with “Monotonia,” with Ozuna, “TQG,” with Karol G, and “Copa Facia” with Manuel Turizo. Now in 2024 it seems like she’s got plans to dominate the charts again but this time with a full album. In an Instagram post, the 47-year-old announced her upcoming album Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran (Women No Longer Cry)—her first LP in seven years following her 2017 album ​​El Dorado.

“My new album, coming out March 22, is one I created together with all of you, my pack of shewolves who were there for me every step of the way. Making this body of work has been an alchemical process. While writing each song I was rebuilding myself. While singing them, my tears transformed into diamonds, and my vulnerability into strength.”

Last year she was awarded Billboard’s Woman of the Year award at the inaugural Latin Women in Music gala and during her speech referred to the evolution she went through following the end of her decade-long relationship with Gerard Pique.

“This has been a year of seismic change in my life where I’ve felt more than ever — and very personally — what it is to be a woman. It’s been a year where I’ve realized we women are stronger than we think, braver than we believed, more independent than we were taught to be,” she added. “Because what woman hasn’t at some time in her life forgotten herself because she’s seeking the attention and love of someone else? It happened to me more than once.”

The new album title is a reference to her lyrics in the worldwide hit “Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53”—“las mujeres ya no lloran, las mujeres facturan.” Her upcoming LP will also feature her debut vinyl release marked by four artworks, more notably the image of Shakira with diamond tears streaming down her face. The 16-track album, her 12th studio album, features seven previously released singles, including “Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53,” “TQG,” “Te Felicito,” and “Copa Vacía.”

Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran (Women Don’t Cry Anymore) is set to be released on March 22.
