Superstar Shakira has another reason to celebrate: her "Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)" music video has surpassed two billion views on YouTube.

The Colombian singer, who is currently crossing the U.S. on her El Dorado Tour, shared the news with her fans on Instagram on Sunday (Aug. 26). "Incredible," she wrote.

The “Waka Waka” clip is Shak’s second video to reach the milestone, following “Chantaje” with Maluma, which hit the two-billion mark earlier this year.

On the Billboard charts, Shakira’s "Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)" Featuring Freshlyground peaked at No. 38 on the July 3, 2010-dated Hot 100 chart. It spent a total of 18 weeks on the chart.
