The video for Sobrio, shot in Los Angeles, features a star-studded cast including the likes of Scott Disick, US rapper Saweetie, and US actor Quincy Brown.

The model makes a brief appearance in the video as an audience member while Maluma raps on stage.

The song, which translates as “sober”, details his troubles with alcohol.

Shaik, 30, grew up in Australia. She was raised in a Muslim family, and has often spoken of her upbringing.

In a 2016 interview, she said: “I was born and raised Muslim and I lived a very normal lifestyle. My father is very open to my job and understanding and he is grateful for the woman I have become. I'm a very sophisticated and respectful woman. I had a great upbringing and a great lifestyle with my sibling.”
