She continues: “Sorry baby, I should have thrown you out a while ago. A she-wolf like me is not for rookies. A she-wolf like me is not for guys like you.
“You thought you’d hurt me and I came back stronger… Women don’t cry anymore, women invoice.”
Then – in an apparent dig at Pique’s intellect – she suggests that her gym-obsessed former partner should spend more time training his brain.
Still living in the family home, next door to Pique’s mother, she adds: “You left me the mother-in-law as a neighbour. With the press at my door and a debt with the taxman.”
To reinforce the message, Shakira has placed a life-size witch doll on her balcony overlooking her mother-in-law’s home.
Emotional message on Instagram
On Instagram on Sunday, the singer posted an emotional message to her 80 million followers, in which she described the song – catchily titled Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol 53 – as cathartic and also as an anthem for other women going through breakups.
She wrote: “I never thought what for me was a catharsis and a release would go straight to number one in the world in Spanish at my age of 45.
“I want to embrace the millions of women who rise up against those who make us feel insignificant.
“Women who defend what they feel and think and raise their hand when they don’t agree, although others raise their eyebrows. They are my inspiration.
“And this achievement is not just mine but of all of you. We have to stand up 70 x seven.
“Not as society tells us to, but in the way we want to, the way that helps us to get ahead for the sake of our children, our parents, for those who need us and place their hope in us.”
