Was it too ahead of its time for some people aka the american general public?

It’s been nearly ten years since this song was released and not one song from any artist has ever topped it.  It deserves to be a global #1 smash for at least 50 weeks.

It did deserve better. However, to this day, I actually hear it out and about in America surprisingly often.

The song is just ok but the rest of the album slays.

I literally worship the ground Shakira walks on but I heard this the other day and realized how whack this song is. I was obsessed with it as a kid and the  instrumental is soooooo good but the song is just.. weird? I’m actually surprised it did as well as it did. I hope I’m not missing some deep meaning to this song that I’m gonna get dragged for :) I love her entire discography, even this song. It’s just I’m surprised it did well.

This song is one of the best pop songs ever recorded. Others WISH they had this. 

And that video. UGH. I still remember watching it for the first time like it was yesterday. Colombian legend did all she had to do :jonny5: The spanish version is even better :jonny5:

Absolutely....I honestly do think it wasn’t following any trend and sounded so different to anything at the time, and people were really ready for it.  That’s also probably why it hasn’t really aged. 

 

And WHEW one of the hottest videos, except for this moment

It was a hit in my country but it did deserve better.

If it were released now that hoeing is fashionable, it would be a #1 everywhere.
