Making an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Shakira opened up about the challenges she faced while working on her new album, attributing some of the difficulties to her ex-husband Gerard Piqué for dragging her down. She stressed the importance of women making their own decisions when it comes to healing from tough situations. Shakira revealed that she poured her raw emotions and personal experiences into the 16 tracks of the album, using music as a form of therapy to put herself back together. She described the process as transforming pain and anger into creativity and resilience, much like precious stones being polished. After ending her 11-year relationship with Spanish soccer player Gerard, whom she discovered was unfaithful, Shakira found support and strength in artists like Cardi B. She believed that Cardi’s powerful presence was needed on her album, and was thrilled when Cardi agreed to collaborate.
