Shakira Unveils New “Empire” Lyric Video
With her successful music career and recurring gig on “The Voice,” some might say that Shakira has her own “Empire.”
So it’s fitting that that is the title of her next single, for which she just revealed a new lyric video, according to the official press release.
Ahead of her self-titled music video’s debut on March 25, Shakira has confirmed that “Empire” will be her follow-up single to “Can’t Remember to Forget You,” her duet with Rihanna.
The video juxtaposes the lyrics to the track with all sorts of natural wonders, from the Northern Lights to a sunrise or a time-lapse of blooming flowers.
Last week, Shakira sparked a controversy by telling “Billboard” that her boyfriend, soccer star Gerard Pique, will not allow her to appear in music videos with other men.
“I like that he protects his turf and he values me, in a way that the only person he would ever let graze my thigh would be Rihanna,” she said.
The busy singer is still serving as a judge on this season of “The Voice,” which is tearing up Monday and Tuesday nights on NBC.
