Shakira collaborated with Nicky Jam on her latest single “Perro Fiel” which roughly translates to English as “faithful dog.” The song appears in Shakira’s 2017 album ‘El Dorado’ which was a big hit. “Perro Fiel” is essentially a song about undying love, how the two of them will be together through good and bad.
“Perro Fiel” has a dialogue style where Shakira and Nicky Jam go back and forth with verses. The music video for the song is gorgeous as Shakira is seen covered in gold paint and giving a sexy dance, which has some amazing belly dancing moves as well.

Some verses roughly translated to English are as follows;
Ya no puedes detenerte
Here you are
You can’t stop now
Verse 1-Nicky Jam
¿Dónde vas? Si estoy loco por tenerte
Cómo lo iba a saber
Que te vería otra vez
Where are you going? If I’m crazy to have you
How would I know
I would see you again
Tú me confundes, no sé qué hacer
Yo lo que quiero es pasarla bien
You confuse me, I do not know what to do
I want to have a good time
Yo tengo miedo de que me guste
Y que vaya a enloquecer
I’m afraid that I like itAnd I’m going to go crazy
Si eso pasa yo seguiré
Contigo aquí como un perro fiel
If that happens I will continue
With you here as a faithful dog

The verses go on like that switching from male to female character nonstop. In the end it is a beautifully choreographed dance between the two soul mates.
