10 Shakira Songs That Are Actually About Her Tax Evasion Case
We all love Shakira. We appreciate her 140 certified genius IQ, and her non-profit “Pies Delcazos.” But none of those are the reasons she’s generating buzz. The Colombian singer has been called to appear in Spanish Court on June 12, 2019, to face accusations of tax evasion. In the wake of this, we’ve decided to round up 10 songs that predicted the future:
1. Clandestino (feat. Maluma)
This one speaks for itself.
2. Dónde Están Los Ladrones
She literally says that the thieves are on trial or doing coke or ofreciendo conciertos and then asks if she’s one of them. The answer is yes, allegedly.
3. Ciega, Sordomuda
This is basically what she will tell the jury when they ask why she didn’t want to declare her taxes.
4. Did It Again
According to the song, she’s cool with it. She says “I did it again now, I’ve got it all wrong, but it felt so right.”
5. Beautiful Liar (feat. Beyoncé)
Maybe beautiful + liar = Shakira?
6. Try Everything
“I messed up tonight, I lost another fight (…) I keep falling down. I keep on hitting the ground.” Sounds like a confession to me.
7. La Tortura (feat. Alejandro Sanz)
Imagine Pique singing this with her, saying that it’s a torture to lose Shakira. Enough said, hit play and let your mind fly.
8. Can’t Remember to Forget You (feat. Rihanna)
It literally starts with “and I left a note on my bedpost, said not to repeat yesterday’s mistakes.” In my head, I picture Shakira singing this to Pique, while two police officers drag her out of court, and into a police car.
9. Te Dejo Madrid
*starts playing while leaving Spain*
10. Estoy Aquí
This is Shakira singing in front of Pique’s house after the divorce trying to win him back. And if you haven’t guessed it by now, I got a whole novela written out of this case.
