“Girl Like Me” was recorded in 2008 by Shakira and Will.i.am, a member of The Black Eyed Peas, but only released this week.
Millions of people watched the music video for the song released on YouTube on Friday.
The video clip was shot with her in Colombia and the trio in California. Such distant shoots could become the new norm, Will.i.am said.
About the making of the video he said: “” We sent her our footage so that the director could match the set and the lighting so that we could all feel in the same universe even though we were apart. “
According to Reuters, The Black Eyed Peasfounded as a rap group in 1995, has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide in genres such as pop, soul and electronic music.
