Shakira and Bizarab were on Friday night on Jimmy Fallon’s Late Show to present “The 53rd Session”, a theme that became a worldwide success. This song in which the Colombian revealed her separation from former soccer player Gerard Piqué.
For Bizarrap, cooperating with the Colombian company was a dream, but somewhat of an illusion. “When I had success with Quevedo, I thought it was a great time to do something with her, I sent her a message on Instagram”, commented Bizarab, although the Colombian replied even two months later.
“I remember because it was August and it was my birthday, I was in the studio and my birthday started with Shakira singing happy birthday to me”, recalls DJ enthusiastically.
The Colombian confirmed that Gonzalo Julian Conde wrote to her and shared it with her son, Milan. Shakira noted: “Look who writes to my mother, he replied: Oh my God, my Argentinian God!”
The musical basis was chosen because it reminded Depeche Mode, from the 80s, with which Shakira realized that she loved the British pop group. The Argentinian created the style from a taste for the synthesizer and production style that had been in vogue for over three decades.
“To choose a song I can be so physical, I feel it in my body. Even I can feel it in my hips, I know it’s the right thing,” said Shakira. “Are you telling me your hips don’t lie?” Fallon joked, referring to the 2005 injury.
“I think people connect with music when it’s authentic. This song has become something of an anthem for a lot of women out there. I had a really tough year after my breakup and it was really important for me to make this song to express everything my condolences,” explained the multi-platinum singer.
Barranquilla’s music concluded in the interview: “I feel that after this song I have no fans, I feel a sisterhood with many women who have gone through the same thing”.
The appearance of Gonzalo Julián Conde, the 24-year-old DJ known artistically as Bizarrap, onstage alongside Shakira stirred the spirits of the mostly Latino crowd, as dozens of attendees could be heard cheering the venue on.
Although the song was not performed live, it was dubbed, which didn’t kill the live audience, who got to watch Bizarab’s studio play Fallon’s show.
The Colombian interacted with the Hispanics gathered at the forum, singing verses that were echoed with great force by those present with the slogan “Women cry for us, women cry for us”. During her performance, the children along with Pique, Sasha and Milano could be seen at the side of the stands watching their successful mother drive everyone crazy with her music.
