It’s scheduled to be released to radio on June 20 then digitally the following day, but it may arrive ahead of schedule.

A minute-long clip surfaced onto a Shakira Facebook fan page.

“I’ve always dreamt of writing, producing and recording a song with Shakira so that together we can show our Colombia to the world,” Vives says. “She has taken our country’s music to unimaginable heights, and finally being able to collaborate with her is a realization of this dream.”

This marks Shakira’s first time ever collaborating with a fellow Colombian artist.
