Shakira - Hips Don't Lie (feat. Wyclef Jean)

[Intro: Wyclef Jean]
Ladies up in here tonight
No fighting (We got the refugees up in here)
No fighting
No fighting
Shakira, Shakira

[Pre-Chorus: Wyclef Jean & Shakira]
I never really knew that she could dance like this (Hey)
She make a man wanna speak Spanish
¿Cómo se llama (Sí!), bonita? (Sí!)
Mi casa, su casa (Shakira, Shakira)
Oh baby, when you talk like that (Huh-uh) (Yeah)
You make a woman go mad (Oh)
So be wise (Sí!) and keep on (Sí!)
Reading the signs of my body (Uno, dos, tres, cuatro)
No fighting

[Chorus: Shakira & Wyclef Jean]
I'm on tonight
You know my hips don't lie (No fighting)
And I'm starting to feel it's right
All the attraction, the tension
Don't you see, baby? This is perfection

[Verse 1: Wyclef Jean]
Hey girl, I can see your body moving
And it's driving me crazy (Huh-uh)
And I didn't have the slightest idea
Until I saw you dancing (Yeah)
That when you walk up on the dance floor nobody cannot ignore
The way you move your body, girl (Just smooth)
And everything's so unexpected, the way you right and left it
So you can keep on shaking it (Let's go)

"Hips Don't Lie" is a song based in a salsa and cumbia performed by colombian singer Shakira and haitian rapper Wyclef Jean, released in 2005 as the second single from the Re-issue of Shakira's second english album (seventh overall) "Oral Fixation Vol. 2". The song is a reworked version of Jean's 2004 song "Dance Like This" and takes some of its instrumentation from Jerry Rivera's "Amores Como El Nuestro" and lyrics from Dominican composer Luis Dias' "Carnaval (Baila en la Calle)". In addition to co-producing the song, Shakira also wrote new material not present in Jean's original version. A spanish version of the track, entitled "Será, Será (Las Caderas No Mienten)", was also released, which was Added on Some Editions of the Album as a Bonus Track. "Hips Don't Lie" became a global success, reaching the number one spot on the charts in at least 25 countries, including the United States, where it broke the record for the most radio plays in a single week. It was Shakira's first number-one single in the US and the UK, as well as Jean's first number-one single in the US and his third in the UK. It won a People's Choice Award and an MTV Latin America Video Music Award, as well as an MTV Video Music Award for the music video's choreography. The song became one of the best-selling singles worldwide of all-time, selling 16 million copies, and it also became the novena song with the most paid downloads in history. After the moderate success of "Don't Bother" and of the parent album, her label Epic Records asked Wyclef Jean, in early 2006, to remake his song "Dance Like This" with Shakira, attempting to revive sales of the album. After that, "Hips Don't Lie" was released as the second single from the album (first from the reissue).
