Shakira to Perform New Single ‘Empire’ on ‘The Voice’

Also, coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will perform with their teams

Shakira will perform her new single, “Empire,” on next Tuesday’s episode of “The Voice.”

Additionally, coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will hit the stage to perform with their teams.

“Empire” comes from Shakira’s self-titled album, which was released last month. It’s her 10th studio album and her first English-language album since 2009. The song is her second single from the album after “Can’t Remember to Forget You,” a duet with Rihanna.

“Shakira” debuted at No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, with first-week sales of 84,000 copies. That would be both the highest Shakira has ever ranked on the charts, but also her lowest first-week sales figure.

The coaches’ performances occur on the first elimination episode after Season 6’s live performances. It will also mark the season debut of the “instant save,” which allows viewers to vote via Twitter on which person in the bottom three will move on in the competition.
