SHAKIRA has transformed into a mermaid in shackles in her latest music video which has hidden messages towards her ex.

Moments before the release of her new single Copa Vacia, the Colombian star, 46, took to Instagram to explain the song has a symbolic meaning for her.

The singer said that the mermaid represents her because she is on "the journey to becoming one with herself again."

Shakira noted that the mermaid "sacrifices a lot for love, ending up in the rubbish amongst rats.

"Thankfully she finds herself in her natural habitat."

Taking a brazen swipeat her ex-Pique, following their public break up, the She Wolf singer joked: "Any resemblance to reality is pure coincidence."

Mermaid Shakira is eventually rescued by Turizo as she sings: "You are always busy with so much business. It would be nice, my love, a little leisure.

"Relax here on the sofa and give me your attention. The phone rings, use your hand with me I know you're hot, but I'm much hotter."
