The news was confirmed in a statement released by CONMEBOL, claiming that Shakira would become the first artist to perform in the final of the Copa America, one of the oldest tournaments in the history of the sport. 

"Shakira is an extraordinary South American star that has dazzled the entire world," said Alejandro Dominguez, president of CONMEBOL. "Her songs are sung and danced in all corners of the planet, transforming her art in a global phenomenon that crosses borders and that reaches millions of people. We're sure that her performance on the stage of Copa America USA 2024 will promote the message of passion and unity through sport."  

The performance follows Shakira's successful release of her new record, "Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran," which will take her on a world tour starting this November. She has 14 arena shows scheduled across North America.
