Watch Shakira Surprise NYC Fans With A Performance In The Park

Shakira recently took quite the musical walk in the park in New York City.

The Colombian superstar surprised fans (including a few New York University graduates) with an impromptu performance in Washington Square Park on Wednesday. Over the weekend, the singer posted a video of the performance on Facebook. 

After greeting fans, Shak sits down with some of her band and prepares to give a live rendition of her hit “Chantaje.” 

“We’re rehearsing for our tour, so we decided this is the perfect environment,” she told fans who gathered around them.

The tour will follow the release of her Spanish-language album El Dorado on Friday. Shakira shared an image of the album cover art on Instagram earlier this month.

Within the last year, Shakira has released several hits and collaborations including “Chantaje” featuring Maluma, the bachata hit “Deja Vu” with Prince Royce and her upbeat single “Me Enamoré” off her new album.
