Shakira is a sucker for Instagram, and her 59.2 million followers know this far too well because she’s constantly posting videos or photos to her social media.

Recently, the Colombian singer shared a short video of herself singing part of “Tu Tu,” Camilo’s recent feel-good song in collaboration with Pedro Capó. “I can’t get this song out of my head!” she captioned the clip, in which she’s wearing a red cami and rocking the heart-shaped-glasses filter.

Camilo, who was featured as Billboard’s Latin Artist on the Rise in August, later shared his reaction on Instagram, expressing that he almost fainted. “After jumping all over the house and having sent this video to my parents, my sister, my girlfriend and the rest of the people I know, I have to say that I can't believe it,” he said, noting that he owned his first Shakira cassette when he was 7 years old. “From that moment until today @shakira is in my mind, synonymous with greatness and excellence.”

While fans speculated that a “Tu Tu” remix might be in the works, Billboard scouted Shak’s Instagram account and discovered that the Colombian singer genuinely loves to support her colleagues by covering their songs and uploading them on the 'Gram.

In addition to singing a cappella versions of her own songs, such as “Clandestino” and “Don’t Bother,” Shak's delighted her fans on social media in the past with her own versions of songs by Soda Stereo, Green Day, Radiohead and many more.
