Shakira Releases Salsa Version of ‘Chantaje (feat. Maluma)’ as a Birthday Present
Thursday (Feb. 2) was Shakira's 40th birthday, so before you do anything, please wish the Fijación Oral icon a very happy birthday on her socials.
Now that you've done that, listen to this: the salsa (!!!) version of "Chantaje" with irresponsibly attractive Colombian reggaeton superstar Maluma, a global smash that's even managed to climb to No. 51 on the Billboard Hot 100. (Language barriers don't stop legends from topping the charts, as it turns out.)
The remix of the track, featuring Chelito De Castro on piano, is exactly as advertised: "Pura salsa brava!" And the accompanying video for the reinterpretation features even more scenes of Shaki and Maluma playfully getting down together, which is truly a wonderful gift.
Happy birthday, Shakira! May your hips forever remain truthful.
