Grammy winner Shakira dropped a new song "Monotonía," and it seemed like she referenced her ex-partner Gerard Pique in it.

“Monotonía,” featuring Puerto Rican rapper Ozuna, follows the Colombian singer's public breakup from her longtime partner, who is also the father of her two children, reported Billboard. Amid rumors of cheating allegations, the former couple announced their split in June, after 11 years together.

Shakira, 45, has now released her latest single where she makes references to a split that fans claim refers to Pique, reported Daily Mail. The new bachata song means Monotony in English. It starts with her singing in Spanish, "It wasn’t your fault, nor was it mine. It was monotony’s fault." Shakira sings that she never said anything but it hurt her, and she knew "this would happen." She talks about the relationship being over before it ended. Appearing to reference the end of a romantic relationship, she sings, "You left me because of your narcissism. You forgot what you used to be."

In the music video, she walks dejectedly through a supermarket. She has tears in her eyes. Later she is shot through the chest by bazooka by a mystery man, who wears a white hoodie and grey trousers. Her fans noticed the similarity between the outfit that the man wears and one that Pique sports in the music video of the song "Me Enamoré," which is Shakira's 2017 track.

In the new video, symbolizing her heartbreak, Shakira walks through the streets with a hole in her chest. She holds her bloody heart in her hand and then someone stamps down on it. At the end of the music video, she locks away her heart in a safety deposit box in a bank.

It's not the first time that Shakira has apparently hit out at her ex via her music after their split. She first appeared to take a swipe at Pique in her single "Te Felicito (I Congratulate You)."

She has been busy with her music. Apart from these two songs, in 2020, she performed at the NFL Super Bowl halftime show with artists like Jennifer Lopez, Bad Bunny, and J Balvin. She shared a new song with Anuel AA called “Me Gusta" back then, reported Pitchfork.
