Shakira has finally dropped her first studio album in four years, and now the Colombian-born singer is celebrating with the tandem-release of the brand new music video for her edgy rock ballad, “Empire.”

In the clip, The Voice coach takes on the role of a runaway bride. As the track goes into the howling chorus during her grand entrance, the 37-year-old drops her bouquet and realizes she isn’t ready to tie the knot, so she makes an abrupt exit and runs barefoot in a fairytale-inspired valley.

The unwilling bride even sets her wedding dress train on fire and switches into a black dress as she passionately sings the tune — and shows off her insane backbend — in the now-decaying church.

“Empire,” is the second single off her self-titled album, available on iTunes now. The LP also includes her pop-raggae jam “Can’t Remember to Forget You” featuring Rihanna.
