The Video For Prince Royce’s ‘Deja Vu’ Just Dropped And Shakira Looks A Bit Tired

Last month, we shared with you audio of Prince Royce and Shakira’s duet, “Deja Vu,” and we were pretty impressed with the Colombian pop veteran’s ability to sound so at home on a bachata track. Prince Royce’s collaboration with Shakira is just one of many in his latest album, “FIVE,” which also features Zendaya, Chris Brown, Gerardo Ortiz and Farruko.

Although Prince Royce gets first billing, Shakira is the star of “Deja Vu.” The video begins with Shakira, in dance gear, stretching…

You may notice Shakira looks a little tired…

There’s even a moment where she looks like she’s holding an imaginary cup of coffee:

We’ve all been there, Shakira.

Soon enough, though, things pick up and we see Shakira showing off the moves she was apparently practicing all morning:

Look at her go!

At one point, Shakira definitely does the “Chin! Dejé los frijoles en la estufa!” face…

… but she eventually recovers and meets up with Prince Royce.

If you’re wondering where Royce has been all this time, most of this other scenes in the video consist of Royce shooting seductive glances at the camera.

Seriously.

Anyway, it all ends on a high note, with Shakira and Royce striking a pose we all know well: the “I’m having a great time!” pose when a friend is taking a photo of us on the dance floor.

This Is What It Looks Like When America Ferrera Steps In As Director For ‘Superstore’

@nbcsuperstore / Instagram / Superstore / NBC

In a recent Vulture article, Maria Elena Fernandez published a stirring profile on the multitalented, Emmy-Award winning actress, and activist, America Ferrera. In the article, Ferrera, 32, discussed some major life events, like how close she came to switching careers after 9/11 and what being a symbol of Latinidad for others was like, even as she struggled with her own identity. She also dives into what it’s like to be an actor, producer and (first-time) director on the NBC sitcom, “Superstore.”

America Ferrera’s directorial debut was last Thursday on the NBC sitcom “Superstore” in an episode called “Mateo’s Last Day.” Here she is celebrating right before it aired.

Ferrera, who is also an activist, fittingly directed this episode of “Superstore” in which Mateo, who is undocumented, faces issues when he gets a promotion at work.

Yeah, this complicates things.

In this episode, the director (has a good ring to it, doesn’t it?), brilliantly tackles issues of immigration starting off with the neverending debate of how to refer to undocumented immigrants.

Correct Mateo, we are all human regardless of the documentation we do or don’t have. Also, notice how Cheyenne isn’t phased by the news he reveals. She’s not about to treat him any different because he’s undocumented. Love!

Ferrera admits nothing comes easy even when she’s done this acting thing hundreds of times. Ferrera says she still gets nervous. But she’s not about letting these feelings of anxiety take over. She faces her fears head-on.

“I’ve made over 100 hours of television by now and just realized there’s always going to be some level of fear and discomfort when you’re doing something you’ve never done before, and sitting around waiting for something to feel not scary would mean I’d probably be sitting around forever.”

As a first generation American, Ferrera gets nervous about not doing her roots enough justice. This balance of wanting to break out while honoring her Latina identity is a struggle we can all relate to.

“You want to honor your roots and your past, but you also want to burst at the seams and grow into something new. That inner struggle is something I so relate to, being the daughter of immigrants. I really, really struggled with my American identity versus my Latino identity growing up. And I never saw that struggle portrayed around me so I felt very alone in that, only to grow up and realize, Oh wait, we all feel this way?”

Yes, girl! Almost all of us felt this way.

During this “Superstore” episode, Ferrera was glued to Twitter ready to answer questions and respond to comments that fans were tweeting at her in real time.

People were loving this episode.

Because she’s heavily involved with social issues, it’s no surprise that people are starting to wonder about her political aspirations. When Vulture asked her if she sees a future in politics, she responded with a pretty political answer.

“It has never been part of the plan but, like I said, I don’t think any of us knows what lies ahead. And I will say that for a lot of people, myself included, the current situation has really put into perspective what matters.”

Let’s hope that’s a solid “maybe.” I’d love to see her making more speeches.

We can’t wait to see what she does next!

You got this!
