El nuevo video

Shakira just dropped a new music video yesterday, and I’m in love with it:

I’ve been waiting for her to drop this one forever.  “Perro Fiel” is one of my favorite songs on her new album, so I was disappointed when I couldn’t find a music video at first.

This song means a lot to me because one of the lyrics is

tú me confundes, no sé qué hacer.

Which is translated as:

You confuse me; I don’t know what to do.

And that, my friends, is exactly how I feel right now.  I’ve got family stuff going on, I don’t have a job yet, etc.  I know what I want, but I don’t know how to get there, and it seems like no one wants to help me navigate life.  It’s really frustrating.  I thought people wanted to help me.  At least they said they did.

But this song helps me cope.  I know I’m not alone.  If Shakira can write a song about it, she’s probably dealt with some of the same stuff.  And that means a lot.

Of course, I’d have to look at the other lyrics to get a clear picture of the song, but I do know this:  “Perro Fiel translates to “loyal dog”.  I had a feeling that that’s what it was, but I got confirmation from the music video.  “perro” means “dog” and there are dogs in the music video.  They’re only in one scene, but still.  Shakira can’t go wrong with puppies.
