Shakira and Blake Shelton are expanding their work together outside of The Voice.

The duo recently teamed up for track “Medicine” off the Colombian singer’s latest album Shakira and now they’re set to perform together at the 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards this Sunday!

And On Air with Ryan Seacrest has learned it wasn’t the country crooner’s idea, but Shakira’s!

Shakira and her team actually reached out to R.A. Clark, who produces the award show, and invited him and his team to a very secretive meeting at her offices where they played “Medicine” before its release and they were so impressed, they said it had to be on the ACM show!

Catch the 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, co-hosted by Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton, Sunday, April 6 at 8 p.m. on CBS.

You can also catch Shakira at this year’s Wango Tango. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Saturday, April 5, at 10 a.m. on keyword: Wango.
