Listen: Shakira Drops New Song ‘Don’t Wait Up’ & Unveils Its Music Video Preview

Published: Thursday 15th Jul 2021 by Rashad

After scoring her highest Hot 100 charting in years courtesy of the Black Eyed Peas bop ‘Girl Like Me,’ global superstar Shakira is ready to take center stage again to replicate the success by her lonesome.

The EDM-tinged, Ian Kirkpatrick-penned & produced tune, which has been teased in earnest over the last week, comes as her first full English track since 2014, and sees the 44-year-old sing about the hope that taking a break will save her love on the rocks.

“Don’t let your mind think it’s someone else, someone else / I need to do something for myself,” she sings before launching into the chorus, “Don’t be afraid if it gets late, yeah / You’ll survive, it’s just one night / Don’t wait up.”

Hear ‘Don’t Wait Up’ in full inside:

Shaki fans only have a few hours to familiarize themselves with the song before its official music video drops.

Ahead of its 9am EST arrival Friday (July 16), look below for a preview:

      It’s a dua lipa reject. Doesn’t suit the tone of her voice.
