The video, shot in Barcelona on April 24, was actually supposed to be launched somewhere in July. But following the song's steady drop in the Billboard charts, the video has premiered much before its actual time. The video has been directed by Jaume de la Iguana (who has directed many Shakira videos like 'No' in 2005) and was shot in Barcelona.
'Sale El Sol' is the third single lifted from Shakira's 'Sale El Sole' album which was released in October 2010. These songs feature special guest appearances from Pitbull and El Cata.
