Speaking about the video to Apple Music's Zane Lowe last year, Shakira admitted she battled with the director over her outfit.

She explained: "I made sure that the water wasn't cold because I'm such a chicken for cold water unless I have a full wetsuit. But the director was like, 'You're not going with a full wetsuit on this video. You're going to be in a bathing suit, in a bikini.

"I'm like, 'No, no, no, I'm not going to be in a bikini, surfing in a bikini. I'm not that fit. I need to wear something to hold everything in properly, but okay, I'll give you some legs.' I said that."

She added: "So we kind of compromised. He was very confused because he's seen me my entire life exposing my midriff, but this time, I was like, 'No, no, no. I'm going to be on a board. I want to be comfortable; I don't want to be sucking anything in.'"
