"Las de la Intuición" (English: "The Ones With the Intuition") is a song by Colombian singer-songwriter Shakira, written by her and Luis Fernando Ochoa for Shakira's 2005 album Fijación Oral Vol. 1. An English version titled "Pure Intuition" did not appear on the album, but it became famous because it was the main theme of the SEAT's campaign "Catch The Fever". It is the fifth and last promotional single from Fijación Oral Vol. 1. The song was recorded and mixed by Gustavo Celis.

Music video[edit]

The music video was filmed in Miami, U.S. under the direction of Shakira and Jaume de Laiguana. The video depicts Shakira wearing a purple wig, a black corset and high heels. Along with four dancers, Shakira holds a purple guitar, and she appears standing next to a car in another scene. g it be known from the start that the woman is in charge, as here. This probably reflects the writer's greater maturity, confidence and power.

A director's cut is out on the internet with more scenes, rearranged scenes, and more silhouette scenes. This video can be seen on Oral Fixation Tour. There is also a remix video called Jonathan Peters Club Mix

"Las de la Intuición" has become another hit for Shakira in Latin America. After the release of Fijación Oral Vol. 1 in 2005, the song made its debut at number forty on Billboard Latin Pop chart, coincidentally right after "Hips Don't Lie" became number two on the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks. Even though the song wasn't released as of 2007 in the United States, it managed to enter the Hot Latin Tracks, peaking at number thirty-one. "Pure Intuition" debuted at number twenty-six on the Dutch Top 40 and reached number eighteen the next week, to peak at number nine in its fourth week.[2][3]

In Europe, the song was translated and re-recorded in English as "Pure Intuition" and released to promote both Shakira's Oral Fixation Tour and was the official song for the campaign "Catch the Fever" by SEAT, due to the sponsorship the tour received by the automobile manufacturer. The song also received some airplay, and it managed to peak inside the top ten in Netherlands Top 40 and Top 50. It also charted in Romania, Slovak Republic and other Eastern Europe countries. This version was also mixed by Gustavo Celis.

In Spain, "Las de la Intuición" has been an enormous success thanks to the SEAT campaign. The digital single sold more than 200,000 copies and received the 7xPlatinum certification.[4] The song has such a big success in this country.
