Shakira concludes a year filled with professional successes with great news. Excited about the achievements she has made in the last 12 months with her music, the Colombian artist is proud to learn that her name is the most searched Latin artist on Google globally of all time .
“‘Wow,’ she wrote about the post that crowns her as the favorite among Spanish and Portuguese performers. Behind her, but with a significant difference in searches, are Enrique Iglesias, Daddy Yankee, and RBD.
To make the year-end even more exciting, Barack Obama shared his annual list of favorite music, where Shakira stands out with her song ‘TQG,’ alongside Karol G. The Colombians are not the only Latinos in the former president’s playlist, as Yng Lvcas and Peso Pluma are also featured.
The Colombian not only reposted Obama’s list but sent him a message to let him know they share a common musical taste. ‘Mr. President, I also love ’Sprinter,‘’ she said, referring to the song by Dave & Central Cee.
In her native Barranquilla, Colombia, they unveiled a 21-foot-tall bronze statue in honor of her global success. Although Shakira was not present at the ceremony where the statue was revealed, her parents, William Mebarak and Nidia Ripoll, proudly witnessed this affectionate tribute.
