"No Creo" (English: I don't believe) is a song written and performed by the Colombian singer-songwriter Shakira. The song was released as the fourth single from her multi-platinum album Dónde Están los Ladrones? (1998) and later from her acoustic performance of the song on the MTV show Unplugged (2000). In the song, the singer expresses how she believes in nothing and nobody except her lover. The song references popular socially accepted or non-accepted norms such as herself, luck, Karl Marx, Jean-Paul Sartre, Mars and Venus, and Brian Weiss.

Music video[edit]

The video begins in a room, where Shakira jumps out of a window into a grassland where eccentric people are present. She scratches the ceiling of a room, goes through dark rooms, riots, swims through a washing room. The video is also present in her hit, "Ciega, Sordomuda", which therefore sparked rumors some scenes were shot back-to-back with "Ciega, Sordomuda".
