Shakira’s Collab With Black M Is Better Than The Awful Cover Suggests
Let’s just get this out of the way. “Comme Moi” has the ugliest cover I have ever seen. I don’t want to drag it too harshly in case it was drawn by a bunch of school kids, but there’s no excuse for this mess. Shakira looks like a Bratz doll that’s been left in the sun for too long and one of Black M’s eyes is alarmingly bigger than the other. On the bright side, the collab is a bi-lingual bop. “I never meant to do you harm, don’t ever want to see you cry again,” the Colombian superstar purrs. “Everybody hurts sometimes.”
It’s a warm hug of a song that makes you feel a little better about life while shaking your (truthful) hips. So, who is Black M? Well, he’s a French rapper of Guinean descent who experienced huge success with debut LP, Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde in 2014. “Comme Moi” is from the follow-up and the album is probably worth checking out if this is any indication. In other Shakira news, her second collaboration of the week, the Maluma-assisted “Chantaje,” drops tomorrow (October 28). Listen below.
