The song, which means Monotony in English, starts with the Colombian song in Spanish: ‘It wasn’t your fault, and it wasn’t mine either. It was the monotony. I never said anything, but it hurt me. I knew this would happen.’
She then hints that the relationship was over before it ended, singing: ‘It’s a necessary goodbye. What used to be incredible became routine.
Your lips taste nothing to me. Now it’s completely the opposite.’
Appearing to refer to the end of her marriage, she says: ‘You left me because of your narcissism. You forgot what you used to be.

‘Remote with your attitude, and it filled me with concern. You didn’t even give half. I know I gave more than you.’
In the music video, Shakira walks dejectedly through a supermarket with tears in her eyes before being shot through the chest with a bazooka by a mysterious man.
Fans have pointed out the similarity between the outfit the man wears – a white hoodie and gray trousers – and one Gerard sports in the music video for Shakira’s 2017 song Me Enamoré.
Symbolizing her heartbreak, she walks through the streets with a hole in her chest, holding her bloody heart in her hand before anyone stomps on it.

“I love you, but I love myself more.”

A key line in the song translates to: ‘To make you whole / I broke myself / I was warned but I didn’t heed / Don’t tell me you’re sorry / I know you well and I know You are lying.’
In an interview with Elle Magazine, the hitmaker was asked about the line and its apparent connection to her marital problems.
‘Is that the feeling you had that you had to kind of give a part of yourself in that relationship that maybe was hard to get back?’ she was asked by Lulu Garcia-Navarro.
“I can only say that either consciously or unconsciously, everything that I feel, everything that I go through, is reflected in the lyrics that I write, in the videos that I make,” answered Shakira. ‘When the glove fits, it fits. As I said before, my music is that channel.’

Shakira’s song and accompanying video featured Puerto Rican singer Rauw Alejandro, who is currently dating Rosalía.
In the video, he appears to play both a romantic interest for Shakira, as well as a robotic clone of the same person that Shakira messes around with until it comes to life.
It comes as Shakira and Gerard continue to try to reach an agreement on their separation, with the pair recently spotted outside a law firm’s office.
In addition to dealing with her looming divorce, Shakira’s legal troubles include an impending lawsuit charges of tax fraud.
Spanish prosecutors accused the entertainer in 2018 of failing to pay 14.5 million euros ($13.9 million) in taxes on income earned between 2012 and 2014. Prosecutors are demanding an eight-year prison sentence and a hefty fine if she is found guilty tax evasion.
Shakira has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and rejected a deal with authorities to avoid going to court. Her PR firm has said she has already paid everything she owed, plus another 3 million euros ($2.8 million) in interest.
The court, based in the town of Esplugues de Llobregat near Barcelona, said Shakira will face six counts of tax fraud. The date of the trial has not yet been set.
