Referring to her breakup with ex-husband Gerard Pique, she shared, “It’s amazing to feel the reaction from so many people. I think people really connect with music when it’s real and authentic, it comes from a real place. The thing about this song is that it’s become like an anthem for so many women.”
“I had a very difficult year after my separation and writing this song was so important to me. It was a healthy way to channel my emotions. I feel like after releasing this song, I felt like I not only had fans but a sisterhood of women who’ve been through the same things, think like I think, feel like I feel, and had to put up with so much c***, like I had to “, added the singer.

The singer then opened up about the strawberry jam reference in a clip for her April 2022 single Te Felicito, which featured a clip of her collaborator Rauw Alejandro’s head inside an open fridge. Shakira knew Gerard and their two children didn’t like strawberry jam, so she suspected someone else had been staying at their house when she found the jar empty after returning home. So, that was a dig at her ex.
