It took it 72 hours to reach 100 million views, becoming the fastest Latin video to do so.

“This achievement is not mine but everyone else’s. We gotta get up 70 times 7. Not as society tells us, but in the way we know best, which serves us to get ahead for our children, our parents and for those who need us and hope in us,” wrote Shakira on Instagram.
