Shakira Honored as Billboard’s First-Ever ‘Latin Woman of the Year’ at Inaugural ‘Latin Women In Music’ Over the Weekend

GRAMMY® and Latin GRAMMY® Award winning artist Shakira released her new single “Acróstico”. In this stripped down piano ballad, Shakira uses her iconic sultry voice to showcase raw and vulnerable emotion. Alongside the track, she released the official lyric video.

Over the weekend, Shakira was honored as Billboard’s first ever Latin Woman of the Year at the inaugural Mujeres Latinas en la Música aka the Latin Women in Music gala. This achievement adds to a banner year for the global icon, who is the first artist to have two Global Top 50 #1s on Spotify and to chart two top 10s this year on the Billboard 200 and Billboard Hot 100.  She also has the two highest charting Spanish language singles by a female artist in history on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 for “Sessions #53” and “TQG”. Shakira already holds the place of the best-selling female Latin artist in history, with a decades-long trajectory of trailblazing and hit-making, but has continued to solidify her legendary status in the past year due to the runaway success of her four latest hits, “Te Felicito”, “Monotonía,” “Music Sessions #53” and “TQG.”
