Shakira Dazzles Times Square With a Spectacular Pop-Up Show

On Tuesday night, Shakira stormed Times Square in New York City after just hours earlier promoting a free pop-up event on social media.

The Latin pop sensation made history at the Manhattan entertainment center when she performed on the TSX Stage. The singer reportedly performed in front of the greatest audience for a Times Square show—more than 40,000 people.

Shakira began the evening’s festivities by performing her well-known dance hit, “Hips Don’t Lie.” With a fiery mashup of her reggaeton hits “Te Felicito” and “TQG,” the Colombian singer maintained the momentum. Later, she went all out on the guitar for “CoÁmo Dónde y Cuándo.”o.”

Fans who were unable to attend the event in person can watch a segment of the show as well as unique behind-the-scenes video in the soon-to-be special “Shakira Desde Times Square.” Vix will stream the program starting at midnight PT on Saturday.

The pop-up event comes one week after Shakira’s most recent album, “Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran,” was made available on Friday. Shakira has released 12 albums total, and this one is her first studio album in seven years.

“For a long time I put my career on hold, to be next to (ex-boyfriend) Gerard (Piqué), so he could play football. There was a lot of sacrifice for love,” Shakira recently told The Sunday Times…

Shakira has a long list of guests on her 16-track album, which includes the Bizarrap collaboration “Bzrp Music Sessions Vol. 53.” Cardi B, Ozuna, Rauw Alejandro, Grupo Frontera, Karol G, and Fuerza Regida are among them.

“Punteria,” the first song on the album featuring Shakira and Cardi B, is a standout choice, according to Melissa Ruggieri, a music writer for USA TODAY. The bilingual song, which is loosely translated as “takes aim,” alternates between Cardi B’s signature hot rapping and Shakira’s confessional lyrics about being enthralled even when everything feels wrong. It is set to an intense dancefloor pounding.

They are a powerful combination, and the song establishes the mood for an album that celebrates female empowerment and flows organically from captivating Latin beats to piercing laments.
