Once you hear it, you will be listening to it over & over again. It's a Latin-Afro fusion of music that's Awesome! Everything about this song is addictive ... I especially love, towards the end of the song when Zolani & Freshlyground have this "chant like" part in the song - Turn it up & your not only hearing but can actually "feel" the music ... its truly a collective combination of talented artists!

This song will have you singing for hours on end along with attempting to learn the dance. Even months after the World Cup, I still find myself listening to this song frequently. Oh Shakira...how amazing you are !

Two years agos, not long after this came out, my daughter's dance studio performed a routine to this song. Now given that you are only allowed a certain time frame, the music had to be cut down, but it was a cute song, catchy and had people singing along and rocking in their seats. In fact it won them a number of top honors that year.

This year my daughter is in Show Choir and I find it a little ironic that one of the songs she is singing is this one, having just danced to it. Yet I am finding it to be almost a completely new song. Yes the catchy tune and beat are still there, in fact she has been sing it around the house so much we are all singing it, but for the first time I am really hearing what it says. To some it may seem like silly phrases and nonsense, but when you put them together with the fact that this song was the Offical Fila World Cup song, then maybe it makes more meaning. Or maybe you just have to see the girls sing and dancing, with the guys in jeans and soccer jersey with them, but it's not just a fun song to me anymore. it means something when I watch the kids on stage singing it.

They say having children will change your perspective on life, well it sure does. Don't think I ever thought it would change my thoughts on music though.

Its one of only a few songs that I like by lady Shakira and includes the English version as well as a club mix. Both are fun and upbeat; what more can you ask for?
