"Ciega, Sordomuda" "" "Inevitable"

"" (English: You) is a song written and performed by the Colombian-born musician Shakira. It is found on her fourth studio album, Dónde Están los Ladrones? (1998). "Tú" was released as the second single of the album, and just like its predecessor, "Ciega, Sordomuda", it reached #1 at the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks chart. "Tú" also crossed over into the Hot 100, peaking at #89 and becoming Shakira's first single to appear on that chart. Many fans regard this song as Shakira's most touching and inspirational song.

BackgroundEdit

Since Shakira's MTV Unplugged performance in 1999, Shakira has altered this song into a Piano Mix, where extraordinary vocal ability is portrayed at the end of the song. Shakira has shown incredible ability of melisma and vocal glottis singing. Shakira, who had not sung this song ever since the Tour of the Mongoose, took this song on account for her performance at the "Rock In Rio" Festival in Spain.

Music videoEdit

Directed by Emilio Estefan, Jr., the video of "Tú" is shot in black-and-white and features Shakira in a room full of things. At the start she is seen facing the right, where she starts singing. Throughout the song, she moves around the room, to the refrigerator, to sit, etc. while a string trio comes in, Soon Hee Newbold on violin, Jason Bendler on violin, and Erin Michael Rettig on cello, and begins playing to her song. At the end, the camera faces outside and to the ground. The coloured version of the video has also been on the internet.

Lyrics and videoEdit

Shakira - Tú03:34

Shakira - Tú

Te regalo mi cintura
Y mis labios para cuando quieras besar
Te regalo mi locura
Y las pocas neuronas que quedan ya

Mis zapatos desteñidos
El diario en el que escribo
Te doy hasta mis suspiros
Pero no te vayas mas

Porque eres tu mi sol
La fe con que vivo
La potencia de mi voz
Los pies con que camino
Eres tu amor
Mis ganas de reir
El adios que no sabre decir
Porque nunca podre vivir sin ti

Si algun dia decidieras
Alejarte nuevamente de aqui
Cerraria cada puerta
Para que nunca pudieras salir

Te regalo mis silencios
Te regalo mi nariz
Yo te doy hasta mis huesos
Pero quedate aqui

Porque eres tu mi sol
La fe con que vivo
La potencia de mi voz
Los pies con que camino
Eres tu amor
Mis ganas de reir
El adios que no sabre decir
Porque nunca podre vivir sin ti
