Hips Don’t Lie Shakira

With “Hips Don’t Lie” it’s time to shake out the concepts of diatonic chords in minor tonalities, talk about harmonic and motivic sequences, and explore how these concepts can be used to create memorable chord progressions and hooks. Once you start using these concepts, everyone will be on the floor dancing to your music in no time!

“Hips Don’t Lie” is by Colombian singer and songwriter Shakira, featuring Haitian rapper Wyclef Jean on Shakira’s seventh studio album, Oral Fixation, Vol. 2 released in 2006, by Epic Records.  “Hips Don’t Lie” is a salsa and worldbeat song, which heavily incorporates samples from Wyclef Jean’s single “Dance Like This” and “Amores Como el Nuestro” written by Omar Alfanno.

“Hips Don’t Lie” received many accolades, including a People’s Choice Award, an MTV Latin America Video Music Award, and an MTV Video Music Award. The song reached the number one spot on charts in at least 18 countries including the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, becoming her first number one single in the country. It also broke the record for the most radio plays in a single week and the fastest selling digital download song in the United States. The song went Triple platinum and topped the charts in Australia, Italy and the UK. Having sold over 10 Million digital downloads and 6 Million physical ones, the track became the best-selling singles of the 21st century in physical singles and digital downloads combined. It is widely recognized as Shakira’s signature song.
