Shakira, Carlos Vives
Expert | Vallenato | Colombia
In Shakira's song "La Bicicleta", she encourages her love interest to take her away on a bike ride, away from the troubles of the past. She expresses her admiration for him, describing him as "diferente" and "despelucado". She also sings of her love for her hometown of Barranquilla and Barcelona, and encourages her love interest to show her the beauty of the Tayrona region. The song is a vallenato-style love song, with a catchy chorus of "Lleva, llévame en tu bicicleta" ("Take, take me on your bike").
