"Inevitable" is a Latin rock song written and performed by Colombian-born singer Shakira, released as the third single from her 1998 multi-platinum album Dónde Están los Ladrones?.

Although "Inevitable" didn't reach the number-one spot on Billboard Hot Latin Tracks, it has been deemed one of her prominent songs in her career.

There has been a noticeable change in her singing version of the song in recent performances, predominantly during the Oral Fixation Tour. Instead of caterwauling after the 2nd chorus as recorded, she holds the note of "inevitable". She has made this change since her 1999 MTV Unplugged performance.

Music videoEdit

In the video for "Inevitable", Shakira is singing the song to an audience in a circular stage in November 1998. The video starts out with candle lights coming from the audience. As the song progresses, strobe lights shine on Shakira and her band as she shakes her head. Toward the end of the video, bubbles and confetti fall from above, the song slows to almost an acappella, and the video exits with Shakira holding her microphone over her head.

Part of this video was also used for promotion for Pepsi. In the commercial, people from the audience are holding Pepsi cans, which burst open to the rhythm of the song.

English versionEdit

In addition, an English version was also penned, which then was planned for an English version of ¿Dónde Están los Ladrones?. It is titled "Inevitable (English)", which has been performed at some USA shows such as The Rosie O'Donnell Show and The ALMA Awards, the latter being performed with Melissa Etheridge. However, plans were soon scrapped, and Shakira released Laundry Service instead.

Shakira - Inevitable

Si es cuestion de confesar
No se preparar cafe
Y no entiendo de futbol
Creo que alguna vez fui infiel

Juego mal hasta el parques
Y jamas uso reloj
Y para ser mas franca nadie
Piensa en ti como lo hago yo

Aunque te de lo mismo
Si es cuestion de confesar
Nunca duermo antes de diez
Ni me baño los domingos

La verdad es que tambien
Lloro una vez al mes
Sobre todo cuando hay frio
Conmigo nada es facil

Ya debes saber
Me conoces bien
(Y sin ti todo es tan aburrido)
El cielo esta cansado ya de ver

La lluvia caer
Y cada ida que pasa es uno mas
Parecido a ayer
No encuentro forma alguna de

Olvidarte porque
Seguir atandote es inevitable
Siempre supe que es mejor
Cuando hay que hablar de dos

Empezar por uno mismo
Ya sabras la situacion
Aqui todo esta peor
Pero al menos aun respiro

No tienes que decirlo
No vas a volver
Te conozco bien
(Ya buscare que hacer contigo)

El cielo esta cansado ya de ver
La lluvia caer
Y cada dia que pasa es uno mas
Parecido a ayer

No encuentro forma alguna de
Olvidarte porque
Seguir atandote es inevitable
Siempre supe que es mejor
Cuando hay que hablar de dos
Empezar por uno mismo
