‘La Tortura’ Clip Exceeds 400 Million Views on YouTube
The clip was directed by Michael Haussman and features a simple concept, which shows Alejandro Sanz spying on Shakira from his partner’s apartment while the Colombian woman walks down the street with an onion bag on the way to her apartment.
From there, Alejandro remembers the two in the past, while Shakira reveals his alter ego, with his dance on top of the building, painted black. The choreography was in charge of Jamie King, together with Shakira.
At its launch, MTV Latina broadcasted the video every hour of the day.
The hit was a total success, having won several awards, among them Billboard, MTV Latin and Latin Grammy.
This is the 12th video of Shakira to surpass the current brand and the first of Alejandro Sanz.
La Tortura was present on the El Dorado World Tour, which recently had its closure in the city of Bogotá, Colombia.
