Shakira is known for writing many of her songs in two languages (Spanish and English) to cater for her tradionally loyal Latin American audience, that supported her since her basics, and the non-Spanish-language countries. Starting from her Laundry Service album, each album had at least one song that had English and Spanish lyrics. Fans always positively respond to those songs and create unofficial Spanglish versions of those and not authorized by Shakira or her record label. The only officially released Spanglish versions to date are Ask For More and La Tortura.

On this page, we will put together all the songs that have Spanish and English versions. The reverse choronological order is used.
