Do you recognize Shakira’s unique voice in this ultra romantic song? Tu is the eighth song in her album ‘Donde Estan los Ladrones?’ released in 1998. This was her last full Spanish album before doing her crossover in 2001 with Laundry Service.
The song talks about giving everything you have to someone you love, from your lips to your brain, to your shoes and the stories that make up your life. If you want this person to stay in your life, as they mean the world to you, you have to share yourself with them. As Shakira poetically puts it in this song,
“They are the sun, your faith, your feet, your voice, the love you wouldn’t know how to live without.”
Maybe you know this feeling all too well… not having that person around. You’ve experienced losing them before, and now that they are back in your life you don’t want a world without them again. If so, this is the song for you.
Tu is the story of a strong, all consuming love, and the hope of having it now and forever. It’s time to treat your ears to the dulcet sound of Shakira’s passionate song.
