Shakira en la Copa América

MIAMI - Shakira, affectionately dubbed 'La reina de los eventos deportivos' (The Queen of Sporting Events), continues to make waves in the music and sports arena. With the approaching Copa América 2024, the Colombian superstar announced that her song "Puntería" will be the official anthem of the event. This revelation came during a surprise appearance on Univision, highlighting her influence on global culture through music.

Shakira emphasized the significant role of music in bringing together people from diverse backgrounds, stating, "This is the most important football event of the year, as this song will be the sound of the summer for fans around the globe. It's the power of our culture and our music."

With its catchy rhythm and lyrics and featuring Cardi B., "Puntería" is set to become the unofficial anthem for football or soccer fans during South America's most prestigious tournament, which kicks off on June 20.

The track is part of her latest album, 'Las mujeres ya no lloran', which features 17 songs. The chorus, "Tú tienes buena puntería, sabes por dónde darme para que quede rendida," is one of the album's most sensual tracks. The video, starring the two artists and Emily in Paris' Lucien Laviscount, has already amassed over 31 million views on YouTube.
