  • This ballad-like track with an Indian flavor is the third international single from Shakira's third English studio album, She Wolf.
  • In this song, Shakira warns her lover that she's a gypsy, and not the "homecoming kind." She invites him to come with her on the road, but adds "You're no fool. If you say 'no'."
  • Shakira also recorded a Spanish version of this song titled "Gitana." It was released as a single in Latin America and Spain.
  • The song's music video features Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal as Shakira's love interest. Jaume de Laiguana directed the clip in Barcelona.
  • Shakira performed this song as a duet with Rascal Flatts on the April 28, 2010 episode of American Idol.
  • Shakira told The Daily Star about the song's meaning: "(The song represents my) way of living and seeing life. I've been on the road since I was very young, so that's where the gypsy metaphor comes from."
