  • Lyrics
  • This song finds Shakira and Beyoncé talking about how the same man told each of them that she was the one and only. Instead of starting a fight or plotting to get back at the guy, they decide he isn't worth it, and to ignore him. Beyoncé considers it a female-empowerment song. >>

  • On the week of April 7, 2007 this made the biggest ever leap in the Billboard Hot 100 when it rose 91 positions to land at #3. It broke the previous record, which was the 95-7 jump of "Smack That" by Akon featuring Eminem on the chart dated October 14, 2006.
  • Beyoncé recorded this herself before asking Shakira to sing on it with her. The song has a Latin flavor and some Spanish lyrics that suited Shakira well.
  • Though this only reached #3 in America, the song was a smash hit internationally, topping the charts in 32 different countries, including the UK, France, Germany, Italy and New Zealand.
