The song was written and produced by Shakira, Luis Fernando Ochoa, El Cata, and John Hill. The song is a latin pop song influenced heavily with merengue and dance music. The song was noted for trying “to incorporate bilingual lyrics, a very 70’s chorus and Copacabana sounds.” Carlos Macias from Terra Networks wrote that “it’s a weird combination of Miami Sound Machine and Waka Waka Shakira.”
