"Sale el Sol" (English: "The Sun Comes Out") is the second single and title track of Colombian singer-songwriter Shakira's third bilingual album Sale el Sol. The song was written by Shakira and Luis Fernando Ochoa, and was released on January 4, 2011. "Sale el Sol" was announced as the second single from the album on November 6, 2010 via Shakira's official fan site. It had also been confirmed through an announcement on the Pies Descalzos Foundation site.

BackgroundEdit

The song was written and produced by Shakira and Luis Fernando Ochoa. The track is described as "a beautiful mid-tеmpo rock tune with acoustic and electro guitars, telling of rises and falls in everyone’s life". In a review of Sale el Sol made by Billboard, the song was described as "wistful and beautiful".

Many fans have cited similarities between "Sale el Sol" and some songs from her older eras, mostly with "Inevitable" (which was also a Shakira/Ochoa composition) due to the song structure and its rocky sound.

Music videoEdit

The music video was directed by Jaume de Laiguana in Terrassa, Catalonia, Spain on November 10, 2010 while she was also filming the Christmas campaign for Freixenet. The video leaked on Shakira's 34th birthday on February 2, 2011, before its official release on February 3. It shows Shakira performing with her band in a dark Winter scenery, while other scenes show her in a golden dress walking through a maze. A storm arises and causes chaos, but in the end she finds a door in the maze that leads her out of the storm and out into a sunny landscape. As of September 2011, the music video has received over 40 million views on YouTube since its release in February solely on Shakira's official Vevo channel.

Shakira - Sale El Sol

Estas semanas sin verte
Me parecieron años
Tanto te quise besar
Que me duelen los labios

Mira que el miedo nos hizo
Cometer estupideces
Nos dejo sordos y ciegos
Tantas veces

Y un dia despues
De la tormenta
Cuando menos piensas sale el sol
De tanto sumar
Pierdes la cuenta
Porque uno y uno
No siempre son dos
Cuando menos piensas
Sale el sol

Te llore hasta el extremo
De lo que era posible
Cuando crei lo que era
Invencible
No hay mal que dure cien años
Ni cuerpo que lo aguante
Y lo mejor siempre espera
Adelante

Y un dia despues
De la tormenta
Cuando menos piensas sale el sol
De tanto sumar
Pierdes la cuenta
Porque uno y uno
No siempre son dosv
Cuando menos piensas
Sale el sol

Cuando menos piensas
Sale el sol

Y un dia despues
De la tormenta
Cuando menos piensas sale el sol
De tanto sumar
Pierdes la cuenta
Porque uno y uno no
Siempre son dos

Y un dia despues
Y un dia despues
Sale el soool

Y un dia despues
De la tormenta
Cuando menos piensas sale el sol
De tanto sumar
Pierdes la cuenta
Porque uno y uno no siempre son dos

Cuando menos piensas sale el sol
