"Did It Again" is a song recorded by Colombian singer-songwriter Shakira for her eighth studio album, She Wolf (2009). It was released on 16 October 2009, by Epic Records, as the second single from the album. The song was written and produced by Shakira, with additional songwriting and production from Pharrell Williams and The Neptunes, respectively. Its Spanish-language version "Lo Hecho Está Hecho" (English: "What Is Done Is Done") includes additional lyrical contributions from Jorge Drexler. "Did It Again" is a electropop song with elements of samba. Lyrically, it details Shakira's involvement in a man's extramarital affair, which leads to her feeling guilty and hurt about it.

Upon its release, "Did It Again" was well received by music critics, many of whom complimented its lyrical content. Commercially, the song attained moderate success. It peaked within the top twenty in nations including Spain, where it was certified gold, and Italy. In the United States, "Did It Again" peaked at number one on the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart and Latin Pop Airplay chart, and at numbers six and 11 on the US Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart and Tropical Songs chart, respectively. An accompanying music video for "Did It Again" was directed by Sophie Muller, and features Shakira fighting a man in a bedroom. It generated a favorable response from critics and was complimented for its dance scenes. For additional promotion, Shakira performed "Did It Again" on a number of television shows.

After the release of "She Wolf", "Did It Again" was serviced as the next single from the album She Wolf, (2009), and is the second single overall.[3] "Did It Again" was written by Shakira and Pharrell Williams, and is one of the four tracks on the album Shakira co-produced with The Neptunes, the others being "Long Time", "Why Wait", and "Good Stuff".[4][5] About her collaboration with Williams, Shakira commented, "he comes up with ideas, and he executes them immediately. It's really cool, because I'm a little bit slower, and he's the man with the big strokes, and he really comes with great ideas. It was a great synergy".[6] A Spanish version of the song, titled "Lo Hecho Está Hecho" was also released and features additional songwriting by Jorge Drexler.[7] Musically, "Did It Again" is an midtempo electropop song that contains elements of samba.[3][8][9] The lyrics of the song are confessional in nature and express Shakira's growing guilt over the fact that she is in a sexual affair with a married man, and her inability to end it, hence the title "Did It Again".[10]

Both the English and Spanish versions of the song were internationally released on 16 October 2009.[11][12] The single was not officially released in the US market, where it was substituted by "Give It Up to Me", the third single off the album.[3][13] A remix of the English version of the song, featuring additional vocals from Kid Cudi, was later released on 11 December 2009.[14]

At the 19th Annual Latin Music Awards hosted by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, Drexler and Williams won an award in the "Pop/Ballad" category for their composition of the song.[20] The Spanish version "Lo Hecho Está Hecho" was acknowledged as an award winning song at the 2011 BMI Latin Awards.[21] The Spanish version also received a nomination for "Canción del Año" ("Song of the Year") in the Pop Category at the Premio Lo Nuestro 2011 awards ceremony.[22]

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Did It Again" was filmed in September 2009 and was directed by Sophie Muller, who had previously worked with Shakira on the music video for "Hips Don't Lie".[39][40] Shakira cited the paintings of British painter Lawrence Alma-Tadema, which detailed scenes of women in Turkish bathrooms, as an inspiration behind the video.[40] After Shakira was shown a "Icelandic contemporary dance piece" by a friend, she and Muller enlisted Icelandic choreographer Katrin Hall to choreograph the dance sequences in the video.[40][41] When asked of the inspiration behind the music video for "Did It Again", Shakira said that she and Muller "brought all these pieces — Moroccan women twirling and turning their heads, and the poetry from Alma-Tadema's paintings, plus this Icelandic contemporary dance piece — and we mixed all these pieces together for the video."[40] The videos for both the original English version and the Spanish translation were released on 30 October 2009.[42] A video for the remix version of the song, featuring American rapper Kid Cudi, debuted later in December 2009.[43] The video starts with Shakira sitting in a steam filled bath house surrounded by other women facing her, all clad in white.[44] The next scene shows a group of female Korean drummers performing the Korean "Three Drum Dance".[45] Shakira appears in a bedroom wearing black lingerie and begins fighting her partner (played by dancer Daniel "Cloud" Campos[40] ) in a martial arts inspired dance routine and ultimately manages to defeat him.[44][46] Scenes of Shakira dancing wearing a black and golden outfit follow. Near the end of the video, all the previous scenes are rapidly interspersed. The version featuring Kid Cudi, features additional scenes of the rapper.[47]

The music video received generally positive reviews from critics. Tanner Stransky from Entertainment Weekly reviewed the video positively, and said that the video was a "fun feat to watch her (Shakira) pull off".[41] Story Gilmore from Neon Limelight called the fight between Shakira and her partner an "angry yet passion filled tussle" and the video a "smoking hot winner".[48] Elena Gorgan from Softpedia, praised Shakira's dance moves and noted that Shakira "comes very close to perfection in terms of artistic dancing".[46]

Shakira made an appearance on 18 September episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! and performed "Did It Again", along with "She Wolf".[46][49] Shakira performed the song on the US version of Dancing with the Stars on 13 October,[50] and on Saturday Night Live on 18 October.[45] In both the performances, Shakira was backed by female Korean drummers, who were also present in the music video of the song.[45] The song was also performed by Shakira at the 2009 MTV Europe Music Awards.[51] On 15 November, she performed the song on the UK version of The X Factor.[52]
