Shakira Debuts Music Video For New Single “Empire”

Shakira came out with the second single from he self-titled album Tuesday and she is on fire … literally.

In the music video, directed by Jonathan Craven, Darren Craig and Jeff Nicholas, Shakira plays the role of a runaway bride. As she is preparing to walk down the isle to get married in a beautiful white wedding dress, she decides to turn and run out of the church into the freedom of a beautiful landscape. Her wedding dress lights on fire and turns into a flowing and more risqué black dress and she finishes the song dancing in a burned version of the church.

While watching the video, note that you never actually get to see the grooms face. This is because Shakira’s boyfriend, FC Barcelona player Gerard Piqué, has banned the the 37-year-old from filming videos with male co-stars.

“He’s very territorial, and since he no longer lets me do videos with men, well, I have to do them with women,” Shakira told Billboard about her last music video with Rihanna “It’s more than implied in our relationship that I can’t do videos like I used to. It’s out of the question — which I like, by the way. I like that he protects his turf and he values me, in a way that the only person that he would ever let graze my thigh would be Rihanna.”
