Shakira and other singers who have dedicated songs to their exes
We started the year with several breakups: Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott, who were ending their relationship for the second time; Belén Rueda and her boyfriend Javier Artime; Samantha and Flavio from ‘Operación triunfo’ or Isabel Preysler with Mario Vargas Llosa. Many overcome their breakup by putting land in the middle, moving to another city, or directly, blocking them from social networks as Tamara Falcó did with Íñigo Onieva, but the new way to get over your ex is: dedicate a song to him.
This is how Shakira has started 2023, dedicating a song with multiple hints to her ex-partner Gerard Piqué, but he has not been the only one who has appeared in his chorus. Her new partner Clara Chía has also come out “splashed” in the lyrics. The Colombian singer and the former Barça player ended her relationship in June 2022, and since then, the artist has written several songs for her ex.
The first was ‘I congratulate you’ together with the Puerto Rican artist Rauw Alejandro, with lyrics like “I congratulate you on how well you act” or “for completing you I broke into pieces, they warned me but I ignored it” the interpreter of ‘Waka Waka’ began the Ode to his ex Later, he released his song with Ozuna ‘Monotonía’, where we noticed a Shakira with very different feelings from her previous single: “It was not your fault, nor mine, it was the fault of the monotony”. conclude (or not, because we don’t know if he will release more music about his ex-relationship) the last session with the producer Bizarrap, with “hints” like ‘sal-pique’, ‘clearly-mind’ or “you left me as a neighbor to the mother-in-law” .

Shakira has dedicated three heartbreak songs to Gerard Piqué after his breakup: ‘I congratulate you’, ‘Monotonía’ and the last one with Bizarrap. But let’s remember when in 2017 she released her song ‘I fell in love’ that recounted how she fell in love with the former Barça player.
C. Tangana had a relationship with the Catalan artist Rosalía from 2016 to 2018. Both released songs like “Antes de morirme” together, but with their breakup, they went from love songs to breakup songs.
“Suffer sucker, give me back my girl”, Shakira is not the only one who speaks of third parties, Hombres G in 1985 also did so in his song. And she also talked about cars, if Shakira mentions the Twingo, Hombres G talked about the white Ford Fiesta.
And vice versa. Rosalía directly wrote an album ‘El mal querer’ for him.
Maluma has also written the occasional song for his ex, as he did in his lyrics to ‘Hawaii’ in 2020: “The photo you uploaded with him saying it was your heaven.”
“Follow your path, I’m doing better without you, now I have others who do it better for me,” Bad Bunny sang in his song ‘I’m worse’in 2016.
Julio Iglesias dedicated a song to Isabel Preysler in 1980, ‘Hey!’. “I know that you like to show off, tell your friends that I can’t live without you”sang the artist.
What if instead of talking about one of your ex’s, you talk about all of them? Well, Ariana Grande did it in her song ‘Thank You, Next’
Selena Gomez had an on-off relationship with singer Justin Bieber from 2010 to 2018 and dedicated the song ‘Lose you to love’ to him, “losing you to love me”.
For his part, Justin Bieber also dedicated a song to Selena. In 2015 he released ‘Sorry’.
Karol G had a relationship with the artist Anuel AA. They both met while recording a video clip in 2018, and the flame of love arose. But in 2020 the relationship ended.
She has dedicated a couple of songs to him like ‘Mami’ with Becky G or Provenza saying “I was with someone but I’m already free!
Miley Cyrus met her ex Liam Hermsworth when she was a teenager. They had a relationship of ups and downs, and she dedicated several songs to him like ‘Wrecking Ball’ (one of heartbreak) or Malibu (when they got back together and later got married). But now, after the separation and Liam’s infidelity, Miley has it clear. The best love, It’s self love he says so in his latest song ‘Flowers’.
Demi Lovato had a very toxic relationship with actor Wilmer Valderrama when she was 17 and 29 from 2010 to 2016. In 2022 she released her song ’29’, a criticism of the age difference between her and her former partner and recounting how it was that relationship.
Taylor Swif also dedicated a song to her ex Calvin Harris in the song ‘Look What You Made Me Do’.
But without a doubt, the one who started the movement “dedicate songs to your ex” was the great Rocío Jurado. ‘Ese hombre’, a song that was released in 1979, is loaded with darts. towards her ex-partner: “foolish”, “vain”, “selfish”
