The Colombian singer announced that she will release “Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran” (Women Don't Cry) on March 22nd. This new work follows the 2017 album El Dorado.

“It was an alchemical process that made this work,” Shakira, 47, said in a press release. By writing each song, I rebuilt myself. By singing them, my tears turned into diamonds and my vulnerability into strength.

According to the press release, the 16-track album will feature seven previously released songs, including Te Felicito and Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53. The Hips Don't Lie singer first hinted at her upcoming album on Sunday when she appeared on Instagram released a video with excerpts from some of her previously released singles. She simply captioned the video with the warning: “Stay tuned.”

In September last year, Shakira opened up about her complicated life as a musician and single mother to two sons, Milan and Sasha, with her ex-partner Gerard Pique.

“The last time I released an album was six years ago. Today I can release music faster, although sometimes I think that life as a single mother and the rhythm of a pop star are incompatible. I have to put my kids to bed, go to the recording studio; “Everything is moving,” Shakira said at the time.
