London | Colombian superstar Shakira’s hit song Waka Waka has passed the one billion views milestone on Youtube. 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. Wow! Waka Waka now has more than a BILLION views! The song and the video that changed my life, Shakira, 38, posted on Twitter. 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 has since become parents to two sons, three-year-old Milan, and Sasha.
