One line of the song ‘Yo solo hago música, perdón que te salpique’ is pointed towards Pique meaning ‘I just make music, sorry if it splashes you’. The exact Salpique meaning in English is nothing as she directly refers to her ex-husband Gerard Pique.

The first line in the track “Una loba como yo no esta pa’ tipos como tu” means “A wolf like me is not for guys like you. I’m too big for you; that’s why you’re with someone just like you.” She tells Pique that a girl like her is not for men like him.

She continued with the scathing lyrics, stating that she would never get back with her ex, even if they “cry or beg” in the future. The exact meaning of the words says “This is for me to mortify you, chew and swallow, so it doesn’t sting. I wouldn’t get back to you, even if you cry or beg me.”

In another line of the song she sings “Tanto que te las das de campeón, y cuando te necesitaba diste tu peor versión” which translates to “You go around saying you’re a champion, and when I needed you, you gave your worst version”.

Another big statement she makes in the track “Yo valgo por dos de 22, Cambiaste un Ferrari por un Twingo; Cambiaste un Rolex por un Casio” which means “I’m worth two 22-year-olds, you traded a Ferrari for a Twingo; you traded a Rolex for a Casio.”

Pique cheated on Shakira with another while being the father of two children. She explains the events made her stronger saying “as mujeres ya no lloran, las mujeres facturan” which means “You thought you hurt me but you made me stronger; women don’t cry anymore, they cash in.”

She finishes the track with lines “Ah, mucho gimnasio, Pero trabaja el cerebro un poquito también” that translates to “Lots of time at the gym, but your brain needs a little work too”. The track has explained the reasons behind the couple’s separation.
