Colombian superstars Shakira and Manuel Turizo have shared a new collaboration. On their new song, “Copa Vacia,” the artists tell a painfully relatable story of two lovers struggling to make things work and meet on the same page.
Over a reggaeton beat, the two lament the distance and friction between them, hoping they can salvage their love.
“I’ve been thirsty for you for a while / I don’t know why / I want more and I want to drink from an empty glass,” the two sing on the song’s chorus. These lines translate to “I’ve been craving you for a while / I don’t know why / You left me wanting more and wanting to drink from an empty cup.”
In the song’s accompanying music video, Shakira is seen as a mermaid, saved by Turizo, as the two dance their heartbreak. Shakira and Turizo also share some steamy, intimate moments as they dance through the pouring rain.
The collaboration is a coming-of-age moment for Turizo, who in an interview with La Razon revealed that Shakira was one of the artists he listened to the most growing up.
