In the latest cover story for Rolling Stone magazine, Shakira explained why her team wanted her to change the lyrics of her hit song, Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53. She released this diss track months after announcing a split from her former partner Gerard Pique, with whom she shares two children: Milan and Sasha.

Shakira told the outlet that her manager asked her to modify the song lyrics, noting she thought about the potential "contingencies and the risks" this song could bring. However, she decided to stay true to herself as she told the outlet, recalling what she said to her team, "I’m an artist. I am a woman. And I’m a wounded she-wolf. And no one should tell me how to lick my wounds."


The singer previously appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and revealed that this diss track becomes an "anthem for so many women" out there, noting that writing this song has been so "important to her" as she went through a difficult phase after her separation from Pique, who allegedly cheated on her with Clara Chia Marti.
