Shakira Releases the Official Music Video for New Track “Empire”

Shakira is expanding her empire… as a runaway bride no less.

The 37-year-old Colombian singer-songwriter and The Voice coach, who launched her new album Shakira. on Tuesday, has released the official music video for her latest single “Empire.”

Shakira's Empire Video

The clip finds Shakira ditching the altar to prance around in a meadow and burn bright, literally.

When she enters a church in her beautiful wedding dress, but gets cold feet, she runs out and toward the countryside, where she can run free.

Shakira eventually returns to the church, but she re-enters the building in a low-cut black dress, and begins flailing while lip-synching to the epic pop-rock ballad.

“Empire” follows lead single, the Rihanna duet “Can’t Remember To Forget You,” which was No. 31 on last week’s tally.

Shakira’s new album also features collaborations with Magic! and fellow The Voice coach Blake Shelton.
