You all know Lady Diana’s “revenge dress”. Know that his equal exists… in music! For many decades now, artists have put their breakups, friendly disappointments and other conflicts at the service of their careers. And very often, these “revenge songs” are a hit. This Thursday, February 2, 2023, Shakira and her ex-spouse Gérard Piqué are celebrating their 46th and 36th birthdays respectively. The opportunity to consider the musical event of this beginning of the year : music sessions, vol. 53.
In this song by Shakira released on January 11, the artist deceived by the father of her children does not mince words to talk about the latter. “A wolf like me is not made for beginners, a wolf like me is not made for a guy like you”, she writes in this sharp piece recorded featuring DJ Bizarrap. At no time is the name of Gérard Piqué mentioned. No need. “You left me the mother-in-law as a neighbor, with the press at the door and debts to the taxman”she continues, before criticizing with virulence the footballer’s new girlfriend : “You changed a Ferrari for a Twingo, a Rolex for a Casio.” Pique to which the sportsman replied with humor.

A title being dedicated to him, almost four years after their divorce. At the same pace as When I Was Your Manthe piece in which Bruno Mars regretted his behavior with his ex in 2012, the interpreter of Hannah Montana has let it be known that she had recovered wonderfully from her separation from the actor. Lyrics, scenography, decor, dresses… Miley Cyrus left absolutely nothing to chance with this song, which in a few hours became a feminist anthem. “I can buy me flowers / Write my name in the sand / Talk to me for hours / Say things you can’t understand / I can take me dancing / I can hold my own hand / Yes, I can love me better than you love me”she claims in particular.
Taylor Swift, one of the most successful and successful American singers of her generation, is impossible to avoid when talking about “revenge songs”.
