In November 2019, there was release of her concert documentary, Shakira in Concert: El Dorado World Tour. Last year, the singer had disclosed that she had to postpone her tour owing to a vocal chord haemorrhage in 2017. Though she was recommended surgery, she chose to let it heal on its own.
Shakira said this setback pushed her into depression and made her a bitter, pessimistic person. She also said her long-time partner, Spanish soccer star Gerard Pique, supported her throughout the struggle. Fans excited with her return.
