The official 2010 FIFA World Cup theme has helped Shakira become only the third Latin artist to achieve the impressive feat, following in the footsteps of Bruno Mars and his Uptown Funk collaboration with Mark Ronson, and Enrique Iglesias and his 2014 single Bailando.
Shakira shared her excitement on Twitter:
Wow! Waka Waka now has more than a BILLION views! The song and the video that changed my life. https://t.co/0W2ycgt3DI Shak— Shakira (@shakira) January 25, 2016
Shakira famously met and fell in love with her partner, Spanish soccer star Gerard Pique, while shooting the video in the spring of 2010.
The couple are now proud parents to two sons, three-year-old Milan and one-year-old Sasha. (Also Read: Shakira, Gerard Pique Bring Baby Home on Their Birthday)
