Shakira’s New Ozuna-Assisted Single ‘Monotona’ Is Heartbroken: You Can Watch It Here.
Shakira isn’t holding back, and her song about heartbreak and the end of what seemed to be a perfect relationship is as raw and honest as it gets.
The Colombian star begins her new Ozuna-assisted single, “Monotona (Monotony),” a bachata track released Wednesday (Oct. 19), by declaring: “It wasn’t your fault, it wasn’t my fault.” It was the fault of monotony. I didn’t say anything, but it hurt. “I knew it was going to happen.”
Shakira co-directed the music video with longtime collaborator Jaume de la Iguana, in which she meets her ex at a grocery store, where he blows up her chest and her heart is ejected from her body. She then runs around with her beating heart in her hand until she gives it to Ozuna, who takes it and places it in a safe box.
“Monotona” and “Te Felicito” were released in the aftermath of Shakira’s public split from her longtime partner and father of her two children, soccer star Gerard Piqué. She addressed the split in an interview with Elle, calling it one of the “most difficult” times in her life. “I’ve kept quiet and just tried to process everything.” Um, and yeah, it’s difficult to talk about it, especially because I’m still going through it, because I’m in the public eye, and because our separation isn’t typical. As a result, it’s been difficult not only for me, but also for my children. Extremely difficult.”
