Shakira released her last album, El Dorado, in May 2017, but the era continued through the end of 2019. Following several singles and a world tour, the era culminated in the release of her live film, Shakira In Concert: El Dorado World Tour, last November.
Even so, Shakira was already writing and recording new music that fall. We got our first taste of her new music when Shakira released "Me Gusta" as a single in January 2020. The song features Anuel AA, and its music video came out in March. Shakira has continued working during the Coronavirus-induced lockdown.
In June, Shakira appeared on a new Black Eyed Peas song called "Girl Like Me"; its music video is expected soon.
We don't yet have a timeline for Shakira's upcoming album. It may come out in fall 2020, or we may have to wait until 2021 to hear it.
