‘Chantaje’s’ Lyrics Translated Into English Show a Semi-Toxic Relationship

Chantaje (Blackmail)

by Shakira and Maluma

(Intro:)

Rudeboyz

(Verse 1: Maluma)

When you are fine, you stay away from me
When you feel lonely, I am always there
It’s a tug of war
Well, give me what you have there
Hey, baby, don’t be cruel
Don’t leave me longing
I hear in the streets
That you don’t love me anymore
Come, and say it to my face

(Pre-Chorus: Shakira, Maluma)

Ask whomever you like
Darling, I swear it is not like that
I never had any bad intentions
I never meant to fool you
It’s just that with me, no one ever knows
One day I say no, another I say yes
(I’m a masochist)
With my body, an egoist

(Chorus: Both, Shakira, Maluma)

You are utter, utter blackmail
Utter, utter blackmail
It’s always your way
I love you even if I don’t want to
You are utter, utter blackmail
Utter, utter blackmail
You are free like the air
I am not yours nor anyone else’s

(Verse 2: Maluma, Shakira)

How you tempt me when you move
Those sexy movements always entertain me
You know how to manipulate me with your hips
I don’t know why you keep me on the waiting list
They say that I go around doing whatever I want
That I go out every night, that I keep you suffering
That in this relationship, I am the boss
Don’t listen to that bad press

(Bridge: Shakira, Maluma)

Why, why do I tell you anything, if they whisper in your ear
Don’t go fixing what is not broken
And like a madman I keep coming after you, dying for you
Tell me what’s in it for me, baby (What?)

(Pre-Chorus: Maluma, Shakira)

Ask whomever you like
Darling, I swear it is not like that
I never had any bad intentions
I never meant to fool you
It’s just that with me, no one ever knows
One day I say no, another I say yes
(I’m a masochist)
With my body, an egoist

(Chorus: Both, Maluma, Shakira)

You are utter, utter blackmail
Utter, utter blackmail
It’s always your way
I love you even if I don’t want to
You are utter, utter blackmail
Utter, utter blackmail
You are free like the air
I am not yours nor anyone else’s

(Post-Chorus: Shakira)

Eh-eh-eh, anyone else’s
Eh-eh-eh, anyone else’s
Eh-eh-eh, anyone else’s
With my body, an egoist

(Chorus: Both, Maluma, Shakira)

You are utter, utter blackmail
Utter, utter blackmail
It’s always your way
I love you even if I don’t want to
You are utter, utter blackmail
Utter, utter blackmail
You are free like the air
I am not yours nor anyone else’s

(Post-Chorus: Shakira)

Eh-eh-eh, anyone else’s
Eh-eh-eh, anyone else’s
Eh-eh-eh, anyone else’s
Eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh

(Outro: Maluma, Shakira)

(Alright alright, baby, Shakira, Maluma)
Pretty boy
(You’re my she wolf. Rudeboyz. Colombia. You feel me?)
Pretty boy
