“Tú me abriste las heridas que ya daba por curadas.”

After Shakira established herself as a star in Latin America, she continued to build her career on collaboration. Some of her biggest hits are duets: there’s “La Tortura” with Alejandro Sanz, “Hips Don’t Lie” with Wyclef and most recently, “Chantaje” with fellow Colombian Maluma. Shakira’s versatility is on display once again in “Deja Vu,” a duet with urban bachata superstar Prince Royce. It’s a quintessential Prince Royce track — glassy guitars and rapid-fire percussion — but Shakira fits in so seamlessly that it wouldn’t be hard to imagine her carrying a song like this on her own. Prince Royce’s latest album, “FIVE,” also features collaborations with Gerardo Ortiz, Chris Brown, Zendaya, Farruko and Gente De Zona.
