Without a doubt, Shakira’s collaboration with Bizarrap will truly be a memorable one. In previous interviews, the two of them have revealed that the Grammy Award winner had ghosted him for months. In this latest interview with El Hormiguero, the Argentine DJ also shared his experience and a few lesser-known facts about the ever-famous collaboration.

Bizarrap said, “I talked to her because I wrote to her and she didn’t see it. I took a gamble, because I didn’t know she was going to answer me. She answered me some time later and told me that her son was insisting to do a song with me”. Even the Waka–Waka singer has verified this. She had revealed that Milan was the one who suggested that she should collaborate next with the viral DJ.
