Shakira absolutely torches ex-boyfriend Pique in lyrics of new song

Someone get the aloe, there are some serious burns here.

From the outside looking in, 2022 was not a good year for Shakira.

Not only did she and her partner of 11 years Gerard Piqué announce their separation, but she was also brought to court for alleged tax fraud crimes. Prosecutors accused her of not paying €14.5 million in taxes, which Shakira not only refutes, but counters that she paid an additional €3 million in interest.

The date of the trial has not yet been announced, but you might think that the last thing the 45-year-old singer might want to do right now is put out any new music.

Not so with Shakira, who released a new track simply called 'Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol.53', which... admittedly, isn't a super catchy title.

However, while the production on the Spanish-language track is fantastic and the song overall is an absolute banger, it is only when you put the lyrics through Google Translate that the full power is revealed.

The lyrics take shots at 35-year-old Piqué, the issues with the Spanish version of the IRS, his relationship with 23-year-old Clara Chía Martí, and plenty of absolutely vicious one-liners. Full lyrics here via Genius, and we've highlighted some of our particular favourite lines:

(For dudes like you, uh-uh-uh-uh-uh)
Oh-oh (Oh-oh)
(For dudes like you, uh-uh-uh-uh-uh)

Sorry, I already took another plane
I'm not coming back here, I don't want another disappointment
So much that you pretend to be a champion
And when I needed you, you gave your worst version
Sorry, baby, it's been a while
I should have thrown that cat away
A she-wolf like me ain't for a rookie

A she-wolf like me ain't for dudes like you, uh-uh-uh-uh
For dudes like you, uh-uh-uh-uh-uh
I've outgrown you and that's why you're with a girl just like you, uh-uh-uh-uh-uh
Oh, oh

I do this for you to mortify, chew and swallow, swallow and chew
I'm not coming back to you, even if you're crying or begging
I understood that it's not my fault you're criticised
I only make music, I'm sorry I splashed you
You left me as a neighbour to the mother-in-law
With the press at the door and the debt at the IRS
You thought you'd hurt me, but you made me tougher
Women don't cry anymore, women invoice

She's got a good person's name
Clearly it's not what it sounds like
She's got a good person's name
Clearly

She's just like you, uh-uh-uh-uh-uh
For dudes like you, uh-uh-uh-uh-uh
I've outgrown you and that's why you're with one just like you, uh-uh-uh-uh-uh
Oh, oh

From love to hate, there's only one step
This way don't come back, listen to me
No hard feelings, baby, I wish you the best with my supposed replacement
I don't even know what happened to you
You're so weird that I can't even tell you apart
I'm worth two 22's
You traded a Ferrari for a Twingo
You traded a Rolex for a Casio
You're going fast, slow down
Ah, a lot of gym
But work-out your brain a little too
Pictures wherever I am
I feel like a hostage here, it's all right with me
I'll let you go tomorrow and if you want to bring her along, bring her along too

She's got a good person's name (Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh)
Clearly it's not what it sounds like (Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh)
She's got a good person's name (Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh)

And a she-wolf like me ain't for dudes like you, uh-uh-uh-uh-uh
For dudes like you, uh-uh-uh-uh-uh
I've outgrown you and that's why you're with a girl just like you, uh-uh-uh-uh-uh
Oh-oh, oh-oh

Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh (For dudes, fo-fo-for dudes like–)
For dudes like you, uh-uh-uh-uh-uh (For dudes, fo-fo-for dudes like–)
I've outgrown you and that's why you're with a girl just like you, uh-uh-uh-uh-uh
It's a wrap
Oh, oh
That's it, bye
