  • Lyrics
  • The title translates literally to "Where Is Your Heart?" The song is about Shakira asking her lover where he is. In the Latin-American culture, you can use the word "Corazón" (Heart) to refer to your lover, so by saying "Donde estás corazón," Shakira is asking "Where are you my love?" >>

  • Shakira had recorded two previous albums that were pop-influenced. This was her first song that sounded like rock n' roll.
  • She was exposed to the sounds of Nirvana, Aerosmith and Tom Petty when acting in a Colombian soap opera, El Oasis. A reader's poll for a Colombian television magazine named her the "Best Rear End in Television."
  • Recorded in 1994, this originally appeared on a compilation called Nuestro Rock (Our Rock).
  • This was a huge hit in Colombia, persuading Sony Records to let her record an entire album of rock. The result is Pies Descalzos, which translates to "Bare Feet."
  • Pies Descalzos sold nearly four million copies in Latin America.
  • This hit #1 on the Latin Music charts.

  • Armando from Caracas, VenezuelaThis song actually saved her from losing her record deal, after it appeared on the Nuestro Rock compilation, the label liked the new sound and decided not to drop her, it led to the release of her international debut album, her greatest, Pies Descalzos. All of that thanks to her agent (May she rest in peace) Patricia Margarita Téllez, she was the one that pulled out the song.
  • Bernard from Caracas, South AmericaShakira is one of the very few Latin rock female singers who has any quality, she has very creative lyrics...she must still be looking for her boyfriend
  • Casie from Denver, CoIm a 13 yr old girl that knows 5 languages.I lived in a spanish country and omg does she rock,I love her. This isnt my favorite album of hers,actually mt favorite album of hers is Donde estan los ladrones? Meaning where are the robbers. She rocks,she is so talented,nobody would have a voice so great,I mean a lil difference with Christina Aguilera but she is fantastic. In this song it explains that her boyfriend is gone and she looks for him everyway and she is worried and she thinks that she was his problem,that she wasnt enough for him so she is broken hearted.
