''Hips Don't Lie'' is currently the world's best-selling single of the 21st Century and is the world's biggest pop song ever. The music video, released in 2006, was shared on YouTube and held the top spot of most-viewed video until around February 2007. The song also reached the number #1 spot in over 25 countries, [[UsefulNotes/TheUnitedStates the United States of America]] included, breaking the record for the most radio plays in a single week and being both Shakira's first US and UK Number 1 (pub quiz question: its status as UK Number One meant that it was the last song ever to be played on ''TopOfThePops''). It has won the People's Choice Award as well as the {{MTV}} Latin American Music Video Award and the MTV Music Video Award in the same year.

It is considered a World song and is Latin Dance and Pop Latino in genre; it has been named the 8th top party song of all time. In the UK it broke the record for most weeks at number 1 during a second run: it spent only one week at the top spot but then returned again for a four-week run two months after its initial chart-topping before {{Beyonce}} knocked it off. This record has never been broken and is currently shared with {{Gotye}} (''Somebody That I Used To Know'').
