Background and composition
Written and composed by Shakira herself, "Día de Enero" is a love song that tells about how she met her boyfriend, Antonio de la Rúa on a January day. The song also makes reference to two famous comics characters "Mutt and Jeff" known in Spanish as "Eneas and Benitín."
The music video for the song shows Shakira walking along a beach at sunset. She also draws a heart in the sand with the letters "S y A" symbolising her love for her former fiancée, Antonio de la Rúa. It was directed by "No" and "Don't Bother" director, Jaume de Laiguana. This video can be seen on Oral Fixation Volumes 1 & 2 Bonus DVD, and the Spanish edition of Oral Fixation Tour.
The song peaked within the Top 40 in the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks chart and also made it to number one on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart (equivalent to the 101st position on the Billboard Hot 100). The song fared well elsewhere, especially in South America.
