'' '''Hips Don't Lie''' ''is a single by {{UsefulNotes/Colombia}}n artist Music/{{Shakira}}. It is based in salsa and cumbia and was released in 2006 as the second track of ''Oral Fixation Vol. 2 (2005)''.

It [[{{Sampling}} samples]] both Wyclef Jean's 2004 song ''Dance Like This'' and Jerry Rivera's ''Amores Como El Nuestro'' with borrowed lyrics from the former originally adapted from Luis Dias' ''Carnaval (Baile en la Calle)''. Many of the song's lyrics are, however, original and written by Shakira.

''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'').

[[TheWorldCup The FIFA World Cup]] 2006 anthem was a remix of this song, ''Hips Don't Lie (Bamboo)'', performed by Shakira at the closing ceremony. It is the second most popular World Cup anthem after 2010's ''Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)'', also by Shakira.

Like many of her songs, Shakira wrote and released a [[SpanishLanguage Spanish]] version, this one called ''[[ShortTitleLongElaborateSubtitle Será, Será (Las Caderas No Mienten)]]''[[note]]Also sometimes called simply "(Mis) Caderas No Mienten" - (my) hips [they] don't lie - for some reason[[/note]].

!!Tropes related to Hips Don't Lie are:
* BareYourMidriff: Several shots in the music video show Shakira in various two-pieces.
* BellyDancer: Shakira's [[TitleDrop hips don't lie]].
* BerserkButton: According to ''Series/UglyBetty'' Shakira does not like people greeting her with "Hips Don't Lie".

** There is [[InsaneTrollLogic French and Haitian Creole in the Spanish version]].
* BookEnds: Starts and ends with "No fighting".
* BreakthroughHit: While ''Pies Descalzos'' may have launched Shakira, this is arguably the most famous of her hits to date, and gained her a previously unfamiliar new audience.
* TheCameo: [[TheFugees Wyclef Jean]].
* ChangingClothesIsAFreeAction: Well, they're only small outfits.
* CostumePorn
* CreatorProvincialism: "Mira en Barranquilla se baila así", "We're just Colombians and Haitans", "Senorita, feel the conga, let me see you move like you come from Colombia", the video resembles the Barranquilla Carnaval.
* DancingIsSeriousBusiness
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Shakira is barefoot in the music video, as usual.
* DyeHard: This was when the blonde came in.
* EverythingsBetterWithSparkles: Wears a nude-and-sequin outfit during the intro.

* GratuitousDiscoSequence
* InDaClub: Video of 2006, but a club of TheNineties.

** Well, ''Bamboo'' has the line "ˇTu Dios te esta mirando!" ('Your god is watching you').
* NudeColoredClothes: The first outfit makes Shakira appear to have sequins stuck on her body.
* PlayingWithFire: See [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hipsdontliecover_4154.jpg image]] above.
* RockMeAmadeus: Uses a trumpet part from ''Deja Vu (Uptown Baby)'' by Lord Tariq and Peter Gunz.
** The trumpet part is supposedly Rivera's, as he threw a fit when he heard the opening, yet said he wouldn't press charges. Rivera is named in the insert, which also includes permissions for the appropriate parts of the song.
* ShesGotLegs: General trait of the [[BellyDancer belly dancing]] SpicyLatina, taken UpToEleven in providing a self-explanatory video.
--> "Yeah, she's so sexy/ E'er man's fantasy"
* ShoutOut: In ''Bamboo'' to two legendary ([[TakeThat though not necessarily for the right reasons]]) [[TheBeautifulGame footie players]]; Pelé and Maradona.
** They're both [[BananaRepublic South American]], like Shakira, too - ignoring the fact that there're other footballers out there as a slight hint of CreatorProvincialism.

** ''Será, Será'' opens with "Wyclef y Shakira!"

** In the Spanish version ''"será, será"'' is in it a fair bit, but ''"mis caderas no mienten"'' - '' 'my hips don't lie' '' - is barely mentioned.
** The World Cup anthem yells ''"Bamboh-oh-oh-oh!"'' about as many times.
** But [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that, yes, with songs a TitleDrop is usually ''[[NecessaryWeasel inevitable]]''. [[DontExplainTheJoke See what I did there?]]
* WhiteMaskOfDoom: Now that I think about it, the video seems a lot like a [[HalloweenEpisode Hallowe'en party]]. [[ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself With belly dancing]]. (Or the Barranquilla Carnaval, as they're marimondas.)
* WomanInWhite: A fair few of them in the cumbia routine.
