A collaboration between Cardi B and Shakira sounds like a dream come true—and it might happen really soon! The duo is reportedly working on a new song together and they could end up giving us a huge summer banger if the rumors are true.

According to the official website of the BMI record label, a song titled “Estoy Lamida” is registered under both of their names. Artists and their record labels register upcoming music in preparation for a release on BMI’s website, suggesting that this high-profile collab could be legit.

The duo is yet to confirm these rumors, but the idea isn’t far-fetched considering they seem to have a ton of respect for each other. Shakira performed Cardi B’s song “I Like It” alongside Bad Bunny at the Super Bowl LIV halftime show, and the Bronx rapper said it was crazy to witness this moment because she grew up listening to her music.

Releasing a splashy collaboration just in time for the summer would make total sense for Cardi B since she hasn’t dropped any new music since the start of 2023. Shakira, on the other hand, has been pretty busy since the start of the year – she broke several records with the viral hit “Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53” and recently released a solo single “Acróstico”.
