Shakira has been capturing our hearts and hips for years. The Colombian singer, songwriter, dancer and record producer is obviously a multi-faceted, talented queen. But there’s one thing we love most about Shakira, Shakira (sing it in Wyclef Jean’s voice) is her music videos. Thus, we give you the Definitive Ranking of Shakira Music Videos. You’re welcome.
1. “Hips Don’t Lie”
When this collab with Wyclef Jean came out in 2005, all of us mere mortals rejoiced! It immediately became an obsessive, on-repeat song, and we all quoted it until… well, nope, we’re all still quoting it.
But can we talk about the whole Wyclef Jean chasing Shakira through pink, sheer curtains? What the…
Honestly, I’m digging Wyclef’s airplane dance in that tank top, but this looks like a blooper from a “Twin Peaks” dream sequence.
Another gem from 2005. You know this song was serious and heart-wrenching because there is a complete lack of color.
THEN SHAKIRA WENT AND TURNED INTO A BUTTERFLY!
Nothing says #serious #art like morphing into a butterfly. Shakira, girl, you do you.
3. “She Wolf”
It’s shocking the internet didn’t implode after this music video was released from the sheer of amount of hotness in it. Seriously.
But this music video is really about the ending, when Shakira has a moment with the moon.
Get it? Because the whole “wolf” theme? Love it. Actually, I’d like to see a spin off of just Shakira and the moon and their torrid love affair.
4. “Las de la Intuición”
This 2005 synth-y techno-y hit from Shakira is an oldie but a goodie. And any chance to see Shakira rock a purple wig. But the best part of the music video?
Shakira in saran wrap.
Honestly, the cheapest set decoration ever. It’s genius.
5. “Whenever, Wherever”
When this song hit us in 2001, we all collectively fell in love. This is one of those songs that when it comes on the radio, you can’t help but jam out as loud as you can. But the real beauty is the music video. I remember watching this in middle school and thinking, “Oh. Right. Shakira is the most beautiful woman in the world.”
There are so many amazing moments in this music video that are a product of the wonder that is the early 2000s. The best part?
Shakira free-falling off a mountain into the ocean.
If you were to tell me this was a scene from “Game of Thrones,” I would absolutely believe you.
6. “Un Poco de Amor”
Vintage Shakira from 1995! Look at that brown hair! Truly so obsessed with this song.
What I really love about this video, is the following moment:
It looks like Shakira in a fish tank… and then that dreadlocked dude does an epic hair flip.
7. “Que Me Quedes Tu”
When you have a song that is this freaking cool, you need an equally awesome music video to go along with it. Also, can we all agree Shakira’s hair is the absolute best? THOSE BLEACH BLONDE CURLS — I DIE. Shakira playing drums is the most badass thing I’ve ever seen. The whole music video is a lot of Shakira just being awesome, but it really ends with the greatest moment.
Shakira hugging a dude in a gold emblazoned heart while the words, “The End” appear.
Nothing will ever exist for me again after this moment.
8. “Te Aviso, Te Anuncio”
We’ve all watched this video a million times, I’m assuming. Angry Shakira is the best Shakira. ALSO THE ANIMATION. CAN WE TALK ABOUT THE ANIMATION?
Shakira pokes a woman’s breasts and they deflate. And it’s all cartoons. Oh. My. God.
There was me before seeing this, and me after seeing this. We are all better for it.
Any music video that starts with Shakira playing the harmonica is a win. Immediate. Win.
But the best part?
It all takes place in a post-apocalyptic world, apparently. Only Shakira and tennis star Rafael Nadal have survived.
Try to peel your eyes away from their golden, glistening bodies and look at the scenery. Where the F are they?! I’m scared and waiting for Katniss to show up.
10. “Underneath Your Clothes”
WELP, TRY NOT TO WEEP AS YOU WATCH AND REMEMBER THIS MUSIC VIDEO. Seriously. I’m dying. So romantic, so emotional. But the best part of the video that has nothing to do with the actual song?
When the white reporter asks Shakira what it’s like crossing over and singing in English, and she responds in Spanish.
ZAMMMNN, ZADDY. Shakira done burned you.
