The 'Gypsy' singer can relate to her new single because she is always travelling for work, Contactmusic reports.
"It's how I live my life, like a nomad," she explained. "Ever since I became famous, I'm constantly travelling, which is great as I get to see so many different cultures and traditions. But I definitely live like a gypsy!"
Shakira added that she invited Rafael Nadal to star in the song's video because he also understands moving around for work.
"I wanted someone I identified with and knew what it was like to constantly travel the world," she said. "Nadal is like me, he started his career young, has fought battles and moves around from place to place. Also, it helps that he is good-looking as that makes it nicer for me!"
