    I’m not sure what I think about this

    It’s not a bad song but it’s just so throwaway

    It’s nice enough. But yeah, throwaway.

    I think there's a lot to like about it and I can see myself playing it a fair bit. It's very light, breezy, infectious and the production is super crisp and very now. It could definitely float away in a mild breeze but thankfully there's no wind at all where I am right now.

    The best song she has released since “Someone To Call My Lover”.

    An optimistic, carefree 'bop'. I love it!

    Great video too:

    I like it.

    I was waiting for it to descend into mumbling at any moment but she showed a surprising degree of restraint.

    That video is also FAB. Waiting for her to bust some of those famous moves until the last 45 seconds when she GIVES GIVES GIVES.

    Is this going to be a hit? Has it been released worldwide?

    Total 6/10 for me. I don't like the vocal production much.

    it’s a bit ‘Shakira football tune’ but I like it, especially with the VIBRANT video

    I didn't watch the video.

    I will do, but Spotify has thrown up What Have You Done For Me Lately now, and it's never going to threaten that :disco:

    I am still in shock that she is not mumbling and grunting her way through a whole song. A total step up.

    Okay, the video is properly really good, and I think she looks great in it.

    I think it's great. What a delightful video too.

    The feel-good vibe reminds me of TBTILAF.

    It sounds like she's pushing ahead with further singles before an album - probably the best way to get the most out of an album that's likely to have a relatively short shelf-life.

    Love that. There are moments in that video where she looks as beautiful as I've seen her look in a good 20 years.

    #6 on iTunes USA. The entire top 5 is Aretha Franklin songs, so she would be at #2 otherwise.

    I genuinely think it's wonderful. Her best song in ages.

    The video elevates the song, but it's still too slight for my liking. And far too much Daddy Yankee.

    I like the reggaeton aspect. I think it totally adds to the song.

    I love this

    It's very Shakira-World Cup anthem meets a Pepsi ad from 2005.

    That is a brilliant bloody video. How energetic. The tune is a grower, but just love the energy.

    Also where's her nose?

    Frankly that’s as good a single as she’s released in many, many years. Video is top notch too!

    There's so little to the rest of the song I guess It does add to it - I just don't like what it adds.

    Even when not a fan of Yankee or reggaeton, this is her best single in 20 years.
