It’s been almost two months since Shakira hinted on Instagram that she will be coming out with new music by dancing to a new beat while in a studio. After a long wait, she has revealed through the social media site the title of her new song and her collaborator.
However, before she announced the name of her new single and the featured act, she dropped clues for fans to figure it out themselves throughout Instagram.
After showing off pics where she was dressed as a magician, in front of a drawing of a crown and holding up a sign with Alejandro “Chan” Sanz next to the letters TA and G, it was off to the races as her fans tried to be the first to guess correctly.
Once a lucky fan was able to guess that her new song is “Chantaje” (Blackmail) and that her collaborator would be Maluma, she let the rest of her fans in on the secret.
The lucky fan then got an exclusive look at the single’s artwork.
Shak just let a fan exclusively reveal the artwork for her new single, Chantaje! /// Shak dio en exclusiva a un fan el arte de su próximo sencillo: Chantaje con @maluma!

Felicitaciones a @k_ponce4 quien adivinó el acertijo! #Chantaje dura 3 minutos y 16 segundos (camisetas 3 / 15+1). ShakHQ ShakHQ
Not only has she revealed the album artwork, but the lucky fans that were able to guess both correctly received a call from Shakira as she played a snippet of her song.
Shak just called a fan, @danielf1993 after he correctly guessed that the word #Chantaje appears 12 times during her new track with @maluma (out tomorrow) – and played him the song! ShakHQ Shak llamó a un fan, Daniel Ferreira, quien acertó el acertijo de Shakira: la palabra #Chantaje aparece 12 veces en su nueva canción con Maluma (que será lanzada mañana) y le tocó un pedacito de la nueva canción. Esto es lo que sucedió…
All of “Chantaje” featuring Maluma will be out tomorrow for everyone to hear.
